Good news! Let me know if you want a hand with the conversion. Did a massive amount of research into converting my first R33 auto to a manual, then some nice french man came along with a wad of cash anbd that was the end of that car ;)
Here is a basic doc I had on my USB Key @ Work but I think i've got some more detailed stuff @ home....
Gearbox crossmember....there r 3 types u need the manual i think... my new gearbox came with 1 fitted so i would say its a manual 1
Manual Propshaft..the front half as the auto 1 will not fit the manual box (thats Fact) you can change the hole lot but that means you'll need the manual diff +?parts? im not sure on that 1
Manual ECU (optional)
Clutch..2nd hand or brand new your choice
Flywheel..2nd hand or brand new your choice + manual bolts
Spigot bush..nightmare 2 get out without the right tools !!! use a bearing puller the sliding hammer type
Remember the good engine needs a spiggot bearing before a manual box is fitted to it, as it was out of an auto????
Pedal box...wrong!!! clutch pedal yes..i found it easy 2 install u need 2 cut a hole in the bulkhead u should have a indent where it goes, the hole is for the clutch master cylinder
Brake pedal...optional...i found this 1 very hard 2 fit, i would just cut the autos 1 to shape as its only the pad thats different
Clutch master cylinder (+all pipework) or just fit a single brake pipe from master 2 slave im told this makes it easier for bleedind the clutch ??
Clutch slave cylinder (and dampner)
Wiring loom from manual gearbox to connect speedo sender, reverse switch, neutral switch.
Cup holder (optional to remove power/snow button)
Speedo clocks(optional to remove pndr12 thingy)
