Adding an overdrive (BW T-19 to ZF-5 transsmission swap)

I originally wrote this for the ecomodder blog, but nothing is being posted and I haven't heard from the admin in quite some time, so I'm giving yall the information here.

I recently swapped out my transmission in order to get the power of overdrive, and encountered all sorts of unexpected problems in the process (due to having never done a similar project before) so I did an extensive write up to ensure anyone else who does the same or similar in the future can avoid learning them the hard way.

So the other day we both returned home at the same time again, only now the weather is warm, sunny, with no wind. And I yell to him: You took the car? In this weather?!?
