UPDATE: swapped chassis harnesses today. found out that i had keyless entry, so thats cool. just have to get a remote. Tailights work now. Wired up fuel pump and got the engine to start. working on the door harnesses. have driver side door switches working properly. used 1g door harnesses, cut 2nd gen connector and matched colors, easy stuff. just half to extend wires for the power mirror switch. still having trouble with the headlight switch. The hardest part about this swap is find the correct mounts. I'm suprised that this has never been done before.

Probably it wasnt done as some of the people who considered it got put off from all the negative advice.

I guess the reason for that is that too many people with too few skills ask the questions about doing it.

All I can say is well done for flying against public opinion, now all it needs it a turbo

Well the mounts. I am using a non-turbo pass. side mount. Going to get a non-turbo rear mount. The front one I am going to have to have a welder fab up. And the driver side mount going to have to make a hyrbid between a 1st and 2ng gen mount.

Thats another thing too. The 89 PGT has TURBO on the side of the car, so if all goes well. Turbo it is.

So do you know the non-turbo rear mount will bolt right up to the KL transmission then?

Also, confirm for me that when you say "non-turbo", you mean 1g. Did mounts change between 1gA and 1gB, if so which one are you referring to.

might help if you could post up the two pages from both WSMs and what wires youve connected to what, it'll make it easier for someone reading this thread to help.

not all of us have access to the necessary diagrams with enough ease....I have a few WSMs here but theyre nearly all for Mazdas and Aus delivered RHD ones, so there are subtle differences with what the switches do, plus we never got the 1G probe here.

It sounds like a simple wiring error of some sort, or maybe the switch does not have enough contacts to do what it needs to do on a 2G harness, maybe you'll need to get creative adding some relays etc....

Yes the bolt right up to the trans...I got one bolted up and ready to go, just enver had time last year to get this far...now that its warming up I may continue on with the project...won't be changing all the wiring like this, though...2gen engine harness and 1gen everything else...luckily mazda is pretty consistent with wiring and electrical, so I think it should work out...

not sure if the mounts bolt to the trans AND the car, and that's what I'm waiting to hear from here, 1ga and 1gb should work just as well either way...there is a difference, but don't think it would matter...

I haven't had the funds to buy the rear mount just yet. One problem about this is that the oil pan touches the sub frame. If the engine is lifted for comfortable clearance the linkage hits the rack. I think I am going to put spacers on the subframes to lower them about an inch. Another thing is that the 2nd gen radiator is to long and if a radiator is mounted in the stock location there wont be room for fans. I am going to have a custom radiator made, one with a cap on the top. If the engine is pushed back for radiator/fan clearance than the linkage will have to be shortened.

why not run the stock dual core 1st gen radiator, with a puller fan located in front of it? works just fine. and the dual core rad will be plenty for the KL. a puller fan would be alot cheaper then a custom radiator.

Wouldn't it be a pusher fan? I run my fan in front of my radiator in mine, and i've got it pushing the air through the radiator into the bay.

Mine's reversable. It was pretty cool when i got home and almost overheated the car in the driveway the day i bought it, because it was in pull mode installed on the bumper side of the radiator.

I guess maybe it was supposed to pull the hot air OUT of the engine bay, through the radiator? Awesome.
