auto & manual 2.0 engines
« on: October 24, 2017, 06:25:10 PM »
Can anyone tell me if the engines from 2.0 autos and manuals are interchangeable onto their respective gearboxes please?

As far as I can tell there is only one crankshaft listed, so it would seem that the manual & auto are the same.
As this is usually the only difference in the engines in whether it has a flywheel or a flexplate/torque converter.
The auto has two spacer plates either side of the flexplate to pack it out.
If going from auto to manual you would need the pilot shaft bearing in the end of the crankshaft or remove it if vice versa.

Thanks people. Die to me coming to a stand-still on idemtifying the running problem with my Diplat manual I thought itight be worth savong the engine from my auto spares car. If it IS possible for the crankshaft sensor wheel on the crank to fail I could at least fit the auto engine for now. It will give me a chance to give the 275,000 mole manual engine a good once-over.
