Does anybody know if the front mount is different? I know the front mount bracket is, but just wondering. Also, is the mount different? I heard on somewhere here that it is.

I know the rear is since I got a rear motor mount for a MT.

Ken, the rear mount has a different part number between AT and MT...

I got my rear mount from either Rock Auto or Imported Car Parts I forget (because one site had only the front and the other the rear)...but ICPs asked whether I had a MT or AT upfront before looking at the mounts so I'm sure its a significant difference if the aftermarket has different ones as well...

Here's Delray's stuff:

Manual:
http://www.acuraoemparts.com/delray/...All&vinsrch=no

Auto:
http://www.acuraoemparts.com/delray/...All&vinsrch=no

I just choose a MT as my car and Delray automatically filters out anything that the auto would use...I bought side, front, and rear mounts, the Insulator (called the Wind Stopper), and the rebound stopper (just in case it's needed...it was cheap enough)...

Gabe, I've got a tranny I'm willing to donate, it needs attention though. Unfortunately I don't have any of the other items you need, but feel free to ask me any questions, I still remember a few things about how I did it.

I pulled the intermediate shaft today off a 90 5-speed coupe and it looks identical to my 87 base model's

I was wondering if anyone knew what years and models I could scoop the manual transmission out of to enter into an automatic 90 Legend.

Thanks.
