Shift Linkage Giving Me Grief
Hi Ladies and Gents, I am almost finished with my b20b/b16a swap into my 2000 civic ex. I have a few questions:
1. To start off, I bought a GSR transmission from a shop for a good price. The catch was that one of the rear-mount holes on the tranny was broken, so the shop had a machinist re-weld it. The weld was straight and looked good, but he did not drill or tap a new hole for the bolt to go into.
I took the transmission to a local machine shop that would drill and tap the hole for the best deal. Well, I got what I payed for and they made a new hole that would fit, but was still a little off, as in it was at a slight angle.
When mounting my motor, I noticed that the angle of the bolt made the rest of the mounts a little off-center. Basically, when I mounted the rear T-bracket, the upper and lower tranny mounts were slightly off. This caused a lot of grief, but I was able to finish it. The transmission to block bolts all lined up except one right above the rear T-bracket and below the thermostat housing. Now the motor seems to be sitting and the area where the tranny connects to the block seems to sit a little higher than everywhere else.
After the story of my life (sorry about that), my question is could the slight difference in angle affects how my shift linkage goes on? I am trying to put it on now but for some reason I can't get it to fit. I'm hoping that I am assembling it incorrectly. Can someone please put up pictures on what a correctly installed shift linkage looks like?
2. I'm putting a b20 into a 2000 civic (obd2b). I have arrived at the distributor issue (mine is obd1, can't afford to buy a new one). I have researched and am going to attempt it soon. My question is instead of constructing a jumper harness, could I just wire the OBD1 plugs directly into the Engine Wire Harness? If so, would that be an easier route?
Sorry for the novel guys.
