    I couldn't find anything in the photo gallery, but I'm specifically looking for a clear photo of the right side trans mount/bracket on a manual trans 88-91 crx.

    I'm just finishing with an auto/manual swap and between me, my local (crappy) dealership, and the online forums I've used up till now I can't get a straight answer to what I need for the right mount! I'm ready to just fab a bracket up since the local dealership told me they couldn't get a right side bracket, and the only scrapyard within 150 miles of me doesn't have any EFs in it.....

    I dunno if the stock bracket would even work or if I need a conversion bracket. If anybody has any advice I'd greatly appreciate it. This is the only think keeping me from finishing the swap and I'm tired of it not being done!

    Hmm, can't see photo.....If you just want to email it that would be great.

    What I'm looking for is a clear photo of the rubber mount that bolts to the right fender and the metal bracket that bolts to the engine at the same location.

    Also, there aren't any junkyards with EF hondas within 150 miles of where I live.

    the auto and manual driver's side mounts are the same - did you relocate the rear mount on the crossmember to the other set of holes closest to passenger side? - the rear mount is in different location on the manual and auto - what engine is it? - if it is not the 88-91, you need to remove the mount from the end of the block and swap on the mount from the 88-91

    Sorry, right side from inside the car, not facing the engine bay (passenger side). I should have been more clear about that. I have relocated the rear mount (and had to buy the new bracket from the dealership), and replaced the front mount. No issues with the driver side mount, so now I'm just trying to get the pass side figured out.

    Honestly, at this point I think the path of least resistance will be to just modify the bracket for the right AT mount. I can weld an extension onto the bracket to gain that extra 3/4" or so that I need for the front bolt, redrill for the rears, and as long as the height of the mount is correct I should be good to go.

    That's' what I ended up doing. Took about 2.5 hrs to cut the AT trans bracket apart and modify it to work with the Manual trans. I didn't spend much time trying to hide what I did, but with a little black paint on it you nearly can't tell that Honda didn't make it.....

    ..... Of course after doing that I found out my new trans is DOA! Grrrr!
