This makes me feel like an idiot having succeeded only after THREE attempts to swap a World-Class T5 into my old Mercury Capri (Mustang) in place of the C3 Automatic.

The clutch pedal installation and all the stuff you'd "think" would be difficult was a cinch. The problems were with driveshaft length, flywheel counterweight (because we didn't know what the counterweight of the block crank was when rebuilt by previous owner and it wasn't marked on flexplate...turned out to be 50oz) and the pilot bearing NAPA sold me was the WRONG one and quickly shredded up causing crank pulsation.)

In the end, it finally ran (2 day project turned into 2 month project) and runs to this day. Totally worth it. Automatics blow in a car you want to communicate with.
