For those who don't know the canyon (for lack of better term) cut into the frame for an automatic is deeper than it is in a manual.
Also the bolt pattern is different and an automatic has a slot whereas the manual has a big round hole for the shift linkage routing back to the transmission. Also a hole needs to be drilled in the canyon back wall for the cross gate cable.
The first step is dealing with the height and bolt pattern difference. Here is a solution I got from Marty. Meier with Delorean Club Midwest.
I've drilled the holes and the second picture is a test fit. It is perfect and now for cutting the hole for the linkage....
