    I just put a JDM B18C into my 95 EX. The guy I bought it from sold me a shift linkage from a d series. I know it won't work.

    However, I have the ends off the linkage that were still on the B18C.

    Can I weld them onto the D series linkage and use it that way? Will it work?

    I'm desperate to get this thing done. Anyone ever try this?

    I too would just purchase the linkage as it is easy to screw up if you try to make it yourself.

    If you have basic fabrication skills then yes, it can be done. Easier to get the proper linkage but to each his own. Just make sure to measure everything eleven billion times. You'll be fine.

    What are the measurements?

    If I screw it up, I'll order one, but I might as well try. It's an auto to manual swap anyway.

    It's $88.82 from Majestic Honda. IMO $100 shipped is worth it to save time, and get it right the first time.

    Fail.

    Looks like I'll be buying a new one. Oh well, I had to try.

    Thanks for all the help and links to new ones.

    i just bought a new one from honda. it's a whole lot easier and you are guaranteed some good quality stuff. i don't know how many times i tried to fix linkage and burned myself on the exhaust because i was being cheap.
