Preparing for 5spd swap

Putting the last few parts together in the next couple weeks, and I was thinking I might install clutch pedal and el cluster this weekend to lessen the amount of work for the future.

Just a few questions though.
1. With the 5spd brake pedal, when I remove my auto one and install 5spd one, do I need to bleed my brakes?? Don't really feel like doing that this weekend....

2. Anyone know what size bulbs are in the fuel temp gauge?? I want to do led conversion on that while I'm putting the new cluster in.

3. On the el cluster, do I have to replace the old inverter box with the one that came with my 5spd cluster, or would it be ok to keep the old one in??

4. Any problems, tips, etc that people have come across while doing the swap

No you don't need to bleed the brakes. The only thing that wasn't mentioned in the tutorial that I used, was that you need to drill a new hole in the motor mount bracket (the car side) for the 5 speed mount to line up correctly. If you plan on keeping cruise control and you get it working please tell me what you did. I didn't install the relay and still haven't gotten around to hooking up reverse lights.

Awww dang lol, I am always driving down the freeway so I kinda miss the autopilot. As far as the mount goes, it's the transmission side mount. Here's a pic I took of mine back when I did the swap.

Re: Preparing for 5spd swap

Forgot another question, I could probably cross reference part numbers but figure ill ask, are the center consoles on 4th gens between auto and 5spd different?
