Hey I have an 81 auto that I am converting to a manual, since mk1 parts don't exist wondering if anyone knows a clutch assembly that would be close.
Thanks

A w58 should work no prob according to the archives.

I got my MK1 clutch off rockauto. It’s an exedy. Stock transmission W55. Was cheap and fit no prob according to my mechanic

do you need the clutch pedal/brake pedal assembly or just the clutch?

Also do you need a 5 speed or do you have that already?!?

For a replacement clutch, I used a 3/4 ton Toyota truck clutch in mine, back in 1982, my mechanic said it would fit perfectly and have a higher spring rate (it did and worked great!)

thanks, that will help...
the clutch pedal and brake pedal assembly/mount is made in one piece, as your automatic brake pedal would be way to large for the clutch to fit. I know because I sold one last year. Any 2nd Gen Celica pedal assembly should work for you. You might want to ask on some of the facebook pages, as a few cars on there are being parted out. good luck

Ok good to know, might even be able to find an aftermarket if 2nd gen will fit. No love for the first gens is making this build pretty difficult.

true, but the following IS growning... slowly...

but yes 2nd Gen CELICA (not Supra) are a bolt in, so should not be to hard to find.... but be prepared for a PITA swap!!! OMG, been a long time since I cussed like that!!!! And I should have charged more! hahaha

Not just a manual swap, its a turbo ls with an ar5 transmission and narrowed 8.8 rear end. There has been and will be plenty of cussing.

Here's what it looks like, so your saying the whole steering bracket where the brake pedal attaches is different?
