I know folks swap out their auto trans to swap in a manual most of the time.
But due to some physical limitations with me, I would like to swap an auto trans into an 81 4 door.
I currently have a 1.6 but being from Canada I could find an AAZ with a little effort, or I have a couple ALH's on hand. (MTDI?)
Looking for drivability and reliability and it would be nice if the transmission wasn't so super rare to find parts for...
Any thoughts on what might be best?
Not afraid of a little hard work if it is feasible.
