$0) so hopefully the parts I have will all work.
Also is there any way to tell what the differential gears are in the tranny or rear end, without pulling them apart? I want to make sure they are the same so that they match whats in there.

EA82 clutch disc
EA82 Pressure plate
EA82 throw-out bearing and fork
You will have to check timing by using the #3 spark plug wire instead of the #1 from now on, because the timing marks on the EA82 flywheel are 180 deg opposite the EA81.
You may have to make room in the transmission tunnel because the 5speed is a little wider and taller at then tail end. On the two conversionns that I have seen, there is a little bit of the housing that has been removed from the passenger side. Just a little unused bolt hole that sticks out. I just cut it of with a sawz-all because it is aluminium so it's very easy.
I also used the two-piece EA82 driveline but I have a wagon so it's the right length. If I remeber correctly the 5sp is about 11" shorter than the 4sp
Also make a little room where the dual-range lever linkage goes up into the interior. Probably the hardest part was drilling holes in the original tranny cross-member because it's very hard steel. I think this part would also be a good thing to have made for you by Jerry
If you need any more help you can call me.

EA82 flywheel, clutch disc and pressure plate, throw out bearing. The bolt holes will be a little bit bigger than the EA81 flywheel. This shouldn't be a concern. Just make sure you use blue loctite when you put in the flywheel.
Good luck, you'll enjoy it.

I got both of them out and they actually look very similar. The only thing that looks different is the backside (motor side). Other than that it looks to be the same size. I was wondering if I could actually just change the fibre in the clutch to the EA82 and keep everything else the same. (like I said, I'm on a budget and I don't have the clutch from the wagon, it went with the car to the scrapper. Besides I don't know how long this car is going to last anyways.) Does anybody know this actual differences in size of the flywheel and clutch assembly. Because to me it looks like it will work. It may sound cheap, but I am, and the car is only worth a couple of hundred bucks anyways. So any further info would be appreciated. As for the driveshaft, I'm going to get a friend to weld it up on a lathe for me and see how that works.

Ea82 and XT6 flywheels are primarily an upgrade due to weight and the newer one has probably been turned less times (as in: machined to smooth it).
