Yes, I own a '91 Subaru Legacy Wagon. Automatic transmission, AWD.

It seems at 164,000 miles my automatic tranny has started to go out. I would just like to know if there is a way to convert over to a manual transmission?

What parts would I require to do the job. Would I be switching to a hydraulic clutch like the newer impreza's or would it be a cable clutch assembly? What parts would I need to remove and install to convert from AT to MT?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Before starting the conversion make sure you have a complete MT car because there are a whole lot of things who are different. Starting with the flywheel over clutch, electrical units and wires, axles, pedal and cable, mounting parts etc.
