Update: I am finally doing the transmission swap (my 98 DX with 204,000 miles for a 93 CX tranny with 93,000 miles). Have the starter disconnected, the splash guard off, the drive axles disconnected from hubs. Next the clutch cover... it's up on jack stands and I plan to use my shop jack to lower the tranny out, supporting the engine block with a friends shop jack once the transmission mount is disconnected. I'm thinking that while in there I should at least inspect the clutch plate and replace if to my advantage. More later...

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
