Default Making my 96 an OBD1

I know I'm gonna be told to search but its hard to find a direct answer doing that. But here we go...

I just bought a 96 accord ex with an automatic transmission for cheap. The engine is blown and needs alot of work. I found a 94 accord ex manual tranny that I'm gonna be swapping everything out of. How do I go about converting it to OBD1??? So I will be converting to OBD1 and converting it to a manual tranny. Ive seen where people have bought harnesses that convert it. I'm getting the ecu out of the 94 accord also. Is there anything else in particular that I need to be pulling out of this car to convert to OBD1??

Also to convert to a manual tranny what all do I need to be getting??? Tranny, starter, slave cylinder, master cylinder, linkage, fluid lines, clutch pedal, center console, shifter, flywheel... What am I missing??

Haha... you must have that saved somewhere to respond that fast...


On some of those parts you specify "your year". Do you mean the year of the tranny that I'm putting in or the year of the car that its going in???
So they didnt make the axles the same from 94-97 manual trannys??? So the 94 drivers axle would not work on my 96??

I just copied that from another source, 94-97 5spd axles are all the same though.

So you are swapping the engine and manual tranny from the 94 into the 96 because the 96 has a blown engine and pos auto trans right? U should be able to get pretty much everything u need out of the 94, u might even be able to pull the engine and tranny together and just drop it into the 96 without splitting the trans+engine, unless you wan't to replace the clutch while you have everything out, which would be a real good idea if you don't know when it was last replaced.
