if converting its good t find a donor vehicle.. since you will need the clutch pedal assembly the clutch master(assuming its hydralic) safety start switch/possibly wiring(required for inspection here) all the lines, prolly best to run new but incase cost is an issue.

then you would need to get transmission, if V8 preferably a NV3500 then the clutch, proper bell housing if not already equipped, new flywheel/pressure plate, and everyhting else assiciated...

Now its not hard and may sound like a pain, but a 5 speed donor vehicle(even a 4 banger dakota) will have all you needfor the prep, then just need to f ind the tranny/clutch/flywheel/presureplaet assembly ..

forgive me if i missed somehting but so far i'l ive found is a donor vehicle, round here the NV3500 aint easy to find.

(used NV3500 since its the most common swap)

You pretty much covered it all.

There is a swap write up in the FAQ2, just a few posts above this one.
