Automatic to Manual Transmission Swap

MVS Member darylrobert recently provided a description with photos of an automatic to manual transmission swap on his 1998 V70t.  In replacing the M56 gearbox, he removed the drive shafts along with the hub, opting not to use the manual drive shaft due to it not being in great condition.   His photos in the forum post also show jack placement and what the transmission looks like with the flywheel removed.  Daryl says, ”I used a 11/16 AF socket which didn’t damage the socket or bolts.  I don’t see why it is recommended to remove the starter motor.”
