Looking for a Muncie 282 trans. Anyone able to help? Any sites or anything will help. Thanks.
Thanks, I’ll look into that site. And I am looking to swap from auto to manual, so will need full transmission. Not many options for donor cars or anything in my area sadly.Hello and welcome to v6z24.
Midwest Transmissions has rebuilt ones.
Thanks for the info, might have to wait till a donor car pops up in my area. There’s not too many of them left sadly.What year is your car?
You are going to need a lot of stuff.
I don't think Midwest can supply everything you'll need. Most likely just the rebuilt transaxles. Asked them though, could be they have some stuff, I really don't know.
Have you read over the 5spd swap How To? It is here, in case you haven't: How to Swap your auto trans out for a 5 speed manual
It covers pretty much everything you'll need and very good instructions to help you get it all together. You'll need the MANUAL specific mount brackets, there are 3 of them and of course the shifter and cables. At this point in time, you may have a very hard time trying to get all the proper 5spd components it takes. A donor is not 100% required, but getting everything might not even be possible, without alot of luck and searching. It is the little things that matter. Such as the cable mount/clamp on the trans, etc. Midwest doesn't include those pieces.
New (aftermarket) flywheel, clutch, master/slave, CV axles, cables are available (or were not too long ago). But the factory parts (shifters, brackets, pedals, etc) are mostly impossible to find, outside a junk yard.
I'll help you search some, if you'd like
Currently I don't know of any manual cars around me, except a Phase II base 4cyl and some of it's parts are gone. I plan to take some time off to go hunting, in early/mid March. There are some old yards around I've not been to in many years, some never before.
