Default AOD to 5 speed conversion

The tech list that someone created for this is really nice but a few tips. I pulled the engine and trans. I also removed the steering column. By the time you disconnect all the wiring on the steering column the only thing left holding the steering column in is one bolt in the engine compartment. Way easy to install the 5 speed pedals that way. Also, the neutral safety switch wiring was attached to the back side of the heater controls. There was a loop of green wire hanging down. Luckily I have original 5 speed car so I could look at it to find things. And if you're getting parts from someone make sure you get the wiring that attaches to the 5 speed transmission. It runs under the drivers seat and plugs into the wiring harness at the driver's kick panel. They gave a part number for it but its not available from Ford any longer. I'll probably have more when I'm done.

That's "wiring" that goes under the drivers seat is the T5 harness. Well covered in write-up. Make sure you see the additional details I add a few pages into that thread. Nothing new here.

Pulling the engine for the swap is completely unnecessary.
