    Alright, I have a 1994 civic hatch back with a b18a1 from a 93 integra. this is my first motor swap, when i got the car the motor was on a stand and the car was full of boxes of parts. so far, i have taken care of a lot of the boxes and went through things. but i am still having trouble. I cant seem to get the clutch cable to hook to the pedal and i cant get the linkage together. not sure how the gas lines go. ive got the vacuum lines taken care of. if anyone could help me with these it would be great!!!!

    here are some pics to give you an idea of what i am looking at.

    He's saying you need a new shift linkage, not an entirely new transmission...

    the reason the clutch cable wont connect anywhere is because your car is set up for a hydraulic clutch, not cable.. either get a new tranny thats hydraulic or buy a hydraulic to cable conversion kit
