Am ready to start my conversion. The white '87 gl 3-door ea82 has only 134K on it. It had a HG problem along with stripped plug threads and apple cored governor gear. Replaced one head and put in a replacement governor gear, but after just 8 miles, it shows coring again. Engine runs great. Bought a bare d/r transmission - supposedly a jdm one with less than 60K miles through it. Found an '87 gl wagon (264K on odometer) also with a d/r transmission with interior trim that matches the 3-door. Have pulled the motor already and seperated the pressure plate, flywheel and bellhousing.

Plan to pull the 3-door motor and then the auto trans. Have pulled ea82 motors 6x now, but not from an automatic - any advice?

The jdm trans has apparently been lying around for the past 4 years without any oil, should I replace any seals?

Have an excellent - lower mileage pedal assembly ready to go in the 3-door (thanks Ed).

Anything else to worry about?

PS: There is usually good beer here.

The only thing I faced pulling the 3AT was a hidden ground wire on top of the trans. Couldn't figure out what was caught and ended up breaking it.
