ooo thank you, I'll certainly be having a look at that when i find it. I think I've caught the whole Galant bug.
Well I just wanted to come back and say that I have installed the engine, and everything was fine, at least I thought.
Unfortunately I forgot to bolt down the crank pulley, and the only thing that was holding it in place was the belts
wrapped around it!!! So toasted that engine! ruined valves again, back to square one!
I would post images, but it would just be just reverse of what I have posted here already /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Found another engine, this time, used my concentration a little better and installed it fine, running mint!
ANOTHER problem! the auto transmission is doing something really weird! it's jolting all the time! I dont know why!
fluids?! did I put the torque converter on wrong? cable not plugged in? what?! NOW THE AUTO TRANS IS SCREWED???!
Then I came across another Mitsubishi Galant 89, with a 4G37 and a KM206 trans (manual) for $300! So I bought it!
took it home! And now I'm in the process of pulling out the trans on both of them and making the damn car a manual.
The car is rotten, and in bad condition. So I'm not just gonna use that one instead.
This is me buying the donor and driving it home! woo hoo!
Unbolted the manual transmission from the donor car and plopped
it out the bottom, in about 2.5 hours or so...
Heres the manual trans (KM206), I hope it'll fit what i have in the car already. a big puddle of
trans fluid because i didn't cover up the axle holes with a rag or something, nevermind I
need to replace the fluid anyways.
Test fitted it to a dead engine. WOO HOO! perfect fit, like a glove! This means it will fit
on the going engine in the car at the moment! Sweet!
This is the manual car, and I've teared out the seats to get at the brake and clutch pedals,
aswell as the gear shifter.
This is the Auto, the main car I want to drive around but want it to be a manual instead.
I need to pull out the brake pedal and auto shifter. That'll be the next days off I guess.
(1) Is the KM206 basically called a F5M22?
(2) Because I'm changing the trans to manual, will
that mean I have to purchase a new ECU?
(3) I read on this page
that all you have to
do is bypass the Auto Neutral Safety Switch (NSS) to do so,
simply go under the hood where the big plug is for the Auto Tranny,
and disconnect the 2 Black wires w\ yellow stripes, and tie them into
each other, and wrap with electrical tape or shrink rap. Is that true?
(4) What happens with the overdrive on/off switch? This should be just to do with the auto, and not worried about, right?
(5) What happens with the power/economy switch? Won't that have some effect on my revs?
Is there anything that could prevent this from running? Is there anything that I'm forgetting? All the shifters and cutting
through the firewall will be a piece of piss, its all this other stuff which has me concerned. I can make it look like its supposed to go
lol! but will I have hang ups with ecu and remnants of the auto wanting its piece of the action?
Is it just as simple as plugging in a manual trans, bypassing the
Auto Neutral Safety Switch, turning the key and driving?
Thanks very much everyone for reading and helping this auto noob out!
This has been a tonne of fun, and I'm enjoying every minute of it!
