So I did a search, but the info I got was unclear. Here's my question.....
will the EA71 w/widebody bell housing out of an '84 std, bolt up to an EA82 5spd D/R tranny?

If the starter is off to the right, then yes. That was why they changed the bell-housing I believe - for compatibility with the EA81 transmissions.GD

Yes, it will bolt-up.

You might need to use an EA81 flywheel though, because the EA71s all used the small clutch.

An EA82 flywheel might also work, but the bolt holes will be a size too large and the EA71 bellhousing might need ground down a little to make it fit.
