auto vs. manual trans mount

i am collecting the parts for my 5sp swap on my 97 base, and one of the parts i can't seem to find is the trans mount. what exactly are the differences between the auto and manual mount? was wondering if maybe i can fabricate a welded one to fit. thanks

Re: auto vs. manual trans mount

I had the same issue when I went from AUTO to 5spd that I had to get a tranny mount.

You're going to need PART #5!!!
I think it was like $70-$80 for that part.

oh ok, so it's just the metal bracket that changes? i can probably weld that out of 1/8" metal and drill some holes then?

Re: auto vs. manual trans mount

I would buy the actual trans mounting bracket instead of doing a makeshift one. I too and searching for that mount bracket for my 5speed swap. I actually found a used one online but its an SH trans mount bracket. I haven't been able to confirm if it actually fits.

This part applies to the both of you. IMO if you're gonna do a swap and it's like a 1 time deal then why not start fresh with a NEW one and not a used nor custom made one?!?!

Cant go wrong if you buy a new HONDA OEM tranny bracket to hold ur motor down!!!

Re: auto vs. manual trans mount

I don't believe it's necessary to buy a "new" bracket. A used one should suffice. But as far as the actual "mount", that I would definitey buy new.

The auto and 5spd transmission mount on a prelude base model is the same. No need to purchase another. I did my saw a few months ago and i using the auto transmission mount.
