OK I'm starting a new thread here, as the old one in maint got a little side tracked & hard to follow clearly. I just bought the following to convert my '98 V70 AWD XC to stick: '04 S60R M66 AWD with everything (mount brackets, levers,) '04 S60R flywheel w/clutch '00 Pedal cluster '00 shifter assy w/ cables 00' clutch master (w/ lines if he can locate them) New Spline Coupler Trans & BG seals as much hardware as they can bag for me that is relevant. T5M ECU is also needed, or a Manual tune from ARD/IPD/WothRLine, or TurboTunerUSB. OR use TunerPro Many, many thanks to 9480tx for the link to the reseller! That was about all I could come up with looking at the parts breakdowns, so the plan is to keep the AWD. I've bookmarked Mat B's excellent thread on FWD conversion, and I'm assuming much of the wiring issues will be the same - but I don't know about the CPS & tach sensors.... Anyone with direct experience or knowledge of issues that may come up, please LMK! EDIT: Just read through Project 6 that's one heck of an car! -many useful bits in there - but still need to know about any engine management issues... EDIT: NO issues with Bevel Gear / Rear diff ratios. As long as you use whatever existing AWD components are on your car as is, it's all good. Been driving it now for 7 years with no issues (that weren't my doing). EDIT: has pics of the casing mod to make subsequent left axle removal easier EDIT: wiring for '98 may differ from 850 - this what I noted from my conversion: For Reverse Use Pin 9 (Blue-Green +) & Pin 5 (Blue - feed to lights). There is more than one solid blue wire! Neutral Safety is the same, Blue & Blue -Yellow are bridged. For cruise control, remove Cruise Relay & snap off pin T3. Air Box inlet tube has to be 'dimpled" on the underside to clear shifter mechanism. EDIT: Auto AWD axles works fine, I have Manual M59 axles in mine, heavier duty outer axle shafts. 11/13 EDIT: Updated info at end of thread regarding trans mount, heim shifter bushings & filling trans. 05/10/14 EDIT: For Single Mass Flywheel conversions, you can use the Sachs SD693 disc (87-92 Ford Probe) with the 850 PP & flywheel (>see this thread for reference) 11/14 EDIT: Note: AWD requires Custom Trans Mount Bracket (use 9161101 rubber mount). Contact me if you want me to make you one Note: Modify shifter cable bracket on trans for 850 or 98-00 style cables. Not necessary if using C30/40/50 version shifter & trans. 9454743 Flywheel bolts for SMF x 10 9454744 Flywheel Bolts for DMF x 10 986321 PP hex head bolt x 6 Refer to Johann's thread for cable attachment pins & simple M66 cable bracket mod >post #1368 >Post #1371 10/14
