    Ok fellas, Im about 78% done with my auto to manual trans swap. I can say that this has been labor intensive:violin::whip::rawr::whip:But anyways I have a couple of questions: I need to know what gear oil to put into the 5spd trans(80 90)?? also I had to remove the distributor in order to have more room to remove the trans. I know I have to set my timing but I am unaware on hw to perform this proceedure. I remember turning the torque converter to remove all of the screws to remove the auto trans. So I know I rotated the engine like 1 revolution. Should I just rotate the dizzy 1 revolution also to match? I need a breakdown on how to set your timing.
