I think the CAL cars didn't use Top Switch

Starter, find the two inhibitor switch wires in your B310 harness and connect them together
Park/Neutral Starter Inhibit Wires
Black with Yellow stripe or Black/Red (BY or BR)

you can connect the wires back to the starter as previous. The only change needs to be to the automatic switch wires as shown above

With the automatic removed, the wiring harness will be hanging down underneath the car. Connect the two Black/Yellow Black/Red wires together

there are two common problems with flywheels
1. Remove the automatic adapter shim from the end of the crank
2. Keep rotating the flywheel until the holes line up

Your local store has them. NAPA, Ace Hardware etc. all carry a large variety of metric bolts

(Quantity 6) M8 x 55mm long medium carbon steel
grade 8.8 is plenty strong, slightly stronger than the originals

Dude thanks for all your help. This project is fighting me all the way lol. Now seems like Iím having a hard time getting the gearbox in the car. Canít get it to line up so I can get the input shaft in. Iím working on the ground...the cars is sitting up on 4 ramps n Iím trying to jack it up n push it towards the engine. Keep hitting on the trans tunnel n the input shaft keeps hitting the pressure plate. I need a hand lol

yea having a second hand definitely help. On the other hand I've put many in by myself

two tips
1) loosen the bolts for the clutch cover, insert a clutch shaft align tool, then rebolt. Otherwise you may never get the transmission fully up to the engine

2) unbolt the engine mount insulators, jack the the engine up slightly, remove the insulators, lower the engine down a bit. Lower the rear of the engine more, raise the front a little bit. That'll tilt the engine just enought to get the front of the transmission up and in. I recommend removing the radiator so it doesn't get damaged, it adds a little time but is worth it

Clutch Alignment Tool (wood, plastic or metal)
* O.D. 13/16", 18 Splines
DORMAN 14502 $2.58
Pioneer TAT5305 $5.99 at OreillyAuto.com / $1.45 at RockAuto.com

The tool aligns the clutch splines with the Pilot Bushing
Open in new window


Tighten the cover bolts while tool is inserted
Open in new window

Now pull the tool out, and the engine and transmission will easily fit together!

Well it all worked out. Tipped the engine back with a jack and lifted the box into place. Had to punch out the old Bellhousing dowel that came in the box. Tomorrow Iíll try to get everything back together n hopefully get it running. Not too confident in myself but at least I tried
