Comparing both 5spd and automatic intermediate shafts yielded some actual differences last night. Not sure if you knew this or not Mark.
Both are identical with the exception of the size/position of the cast mounting bracket (to the block). The automatic shaft is ~3/8" further away from the block when mounted. Keep in mind that the A/C (or whatever) bracket mounts in between the shaft mount and the block.
This means that to run the 5 spd intermediate shaft on the automatic, you will need some strong 3/8" spacers (nut). Mine currently doesn't have AC so I am using spacers either way.
Hopefully, Digit will be able to confirm this for us.
You can actually buy the spacers from the chrysler/ mitsu dealer. I found them last year by accident. They ordered me the wrong part, but I bought them anyway.
Can anyone who's done this swap confirm what the numbers are on the motor mount brackets that bolt to the block? I found a 91 auto Galant in the yard today and I'm slowly trying to gather the parts from the various cars that I'll need to do this swap.
Any info would be better to help make this thread more complete.
