    Car never had heat...another indicator...no flow!:



    Hate to grind on a new transmission, but as others have pointed out - areas of interference (yes all I have is a Dremel and many cut off discs...;-):

    Well, that will explain a no heat issue

    The second computer was for your auto trans. Not needed.

    You will need to figure out which wires from the shifter you need to connect/jump in order to bypass the neutral safety switch, which will prevent you from cranking otherwise. I just don't remember from back in the day when I did auto to manual swap.

    Wow...that heater core/valve is ugly. I'm assuming that is the result of failure to flush the cooling system with any regularity?

    It might be a good idea to rig something up to pump some hot water through the core, using clear hose, so you can ensure the core itself is not blocked to the point of needing replacement.
