Wow, someone should grab as much as they can. Must've been an '86 or '87 (IIRC, those were the two years the 4.3L & T-5 were offered from the factory...and assuming the parts on the van are factory installed here). The shifter assembly, trans case, and pedal bracketry are all unique to the M-van.

Its an 89 and its still there as I grabbed the dash gauge assembly today. But its to much work for me to grab and to much to spend hoping to recoup the money since I can't use a stick with y bad shoulder.

I understand. I wasn't meaning you personally, but if someone close sees this, they shouldn't hesitate.

If you wouldn't mind, could you post a picture of the instrument cluster, please? I've still got the auto cluster in my '95, and am curious what the manual cluster looks like. Is it a digital or analog (sweep style) cluster?

Getting harder to find all the time for the very few people that want to install a manual transmission. Hopefully someone will save it.

the gauge assembly looks exactly like mine since mine is an 89 the only difference is the little spot that shows what gear your in is blacked out. But it will not fit in the 95 totally different assembly.

Hey Mark, if you do go back, could you take a picture (or a few) of the under dash showing how and where the clutch pedal is mounted? If you actually grab the part (I think it's bolted in, IIRC) I will gladly pay the cost of the part, the shipping, and a few extra for you for doing it. I don't need the master cylinder or linkage, just the pedal assembly. If you do grab the part, could you take a few pics of the mounting location for reference? I would much appreciate it.

Sorry I have not been back there and most likely won't till the last week of this month when I get paid again. I will take a peak and if its there I sure will grab the pedal and take some pictures. Mark
