    your axles will fit in a mt tranny and if you have no clue what i am talking about i think that you should not perform this task

    http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1229014 says that you're right and you only use one of the axles off your current car. I dont know why this other guy is even posting but I'm sure that tab or someone who knows what they are talking about or atleast knows how to type can verify that this is right.

    That looks like a good write up. The mechanichal parts are sure to be very similar. The wiring will be different, since he was swapping a newer OBD2 Accord. Nothing a smart guy can't figure out.

    Good luck to anyone that wants to try this. I like simplicity. I'd probably buy a manual EX Wagon before swapping my car.

    ok here is the deal the axle you have should fit the only diff is the manuel trans have the inte shaft and short axle to compensait for the torque. so the drivers side axle on the auto is long and the pass is short they should interchange. the manuel trannys have the short shaft and the inte shaft. then there are all the other issues.



    what i am saying is if you do not know what a inte shaft is you probally will not be able to do this swap, you have to change mounts then you have to change ecus then you have to remove all the shift lock stuff, and fugure out how to make it start then you have to mount shift linkage, then you need to mount the pedal assemblys for the 5 speed.

    its not an easy task.

    In English translation:

    Keep the driver's side axle. The passenger side will be replaced with an intermediate shaft and drive axle from a manual tranny.

    A lot of work, blah blah, much wiring, blah blah, it'll be a bitch.

    If you are not mechanically inclined and good with wiring, buy a manual.

    [/translation]

    I'm in the process of doing a 5 speed conversion on a 95 accord lx. I have a transmission out of a 94 and it went in beautifully. I know that im going to have to do some wiring, but i started it up with all of the stock auto shifter in it and it fired up the first time, then when i went to start it again and it was flashing the d4 light and then it would not start. Ive put a multi meter on the starter and it is getting power from the ignition switch and the starter is good, but it is not turning over. I figured since it was still on the stock shifter that it would start. What should i do in order to get the wiring done. i know what i need to do to get the reverse lights, but i need to know about the starter. Please help! I cant wait to get my car going now.
