Hello, l'm in the process of swapping a S14 auto into manual, i'm a bit worried about the transmission dust shield. Will the one from the auto work on the manual?!! if not does anyone have one for sale?! thanks.

Hello everyone,
Am new to this website and am glad that am here ,
I just bought recently a 240sx and the car seems like had a 5 speed swap before and I have problem, the car keeps drain the battery and the battery brand new just bought it 5 days ago cause I thought the battery is the problem but I was checking all the fuses today with multimeter and I found so far 2 short circuit,
1- the shift lock stay on when the ignition and the car off
2- car interior light stays on ,on the multimeter even if the switch off and the car turned off and read 12.13 DC so I think that's enough to drain the battery!!!!

Supplement on removing a flywheel:

There are a few ways to get an automatic or manual flywheel on or off.

The easiest by far is to have an impact gun. A quick ziiiip and the flywheel is on the ground. If you don't have an impact gun the flywheel will spin as you try to take it off, you can attempt to brace the flywheel using screwdrivers and such, while holding the crank pulley with a 27mm socket.... or you can use this secret:

EASY WAY TO GET ON AND OFF A FLYWHEEL: upon doing a clutch swap a year or so after my 5 speed conversion, I ran into a really easy way to change the flywheel. Basically you get a new bolt (and possibly a nut since the a/t flywheel isn't threaded) that will fit into a hole on the flywheel (the hole not used to bolt to the crankshaft) and use a bellhousing bolt. Run a chain between the two bolts as shown in the diagram below. it doesn't matter if the chain is too long, the excess can just dangle. Put the chain on and then turn the flywheel to add tension to the chain. The chain will now keep the flywheel from spinning. This works great to hold the flywheel if you don't have an impact gun. Wrench away.

Man I saw a few ideas of how people take of their flywheels but I cant believe they dont use this technique. Get a transmission bolt and screw it into the block, usually better to use the side holes rather than the top ones, depending on what side you will be turning the engine, after that get a 12, 13, or 14 mm short socket and place it between the bolt and the flywheel (I like to think that the side of the socket that the bolts or nuts go in are better towards the flywheel teeth since it'll help with slippage issues and the 3/8 drive side will rest on the bolt). In other words the flywheel will bite into the socket and it'll get to a point where it can turn anymore and that will be your queue to loosen or tighten. I hope this is of some help to someone, I think it's a bit more practical if you dont have an impact.
