auto to manual

Am i right in thinking that if i bought a manual vito van i could transfer all the manual conversion into my 1999 auto v220.If so is there a specific model that i need to get.

I'm putting a v280 auto into my 108cdi........i just bought the whole van cheap...(700).....that way i have everything i need....

Youll need the engine ,box all the wiring, ignition etc....probably better to buy a crashed/rusty mot failure.....

One thing (amoung many) to sort out is the pedals and cables BEFORE you put the engine and box back in.....the clutch is fluid and the pipework is attached to the firewall...i had a leak in the pipe (no clutch) and found it impossible to remove the pipework without bending it totally out of shape, theres no room to extract it easily....i had to get a stainless flexi made to replace it....all much easier if there was no engine in the way....

Not impossible but it might save some knuckles and swear words....

Couldnt be 100% sure if all the holes are there for the parts you'll be fitting...you'll have to have a good look at what goes where in both vans....
