WRONG..lol I called them and its the pass side.. so Thats what I did. also it says to use a 9/16 drill bit. have you ever tried to find a 9/16 with a 3/8 shank?.. A 1/2" bit will work if anybody wants to know.... Also does anyone know if your supposed to use the old mounting plate from the 1.3 tranny with the kit cause I didn't use one and it seams theres no gaps anywhere.. the instuctions dont say

I used the 1.6 RR swap kit and if I remember right I had to drill out both bottom holes with a 9/16 to make the holes bigger for the stud on the 1.6 engine. You mount the adapter to the transmission and they you mount the 1.3 flywheel and clutch to the 1.6 block and then you put the two together. Any other questions I would love to help.

you will have to drill a new hole in your trans crossmember as well. don't remember it was in the instructions when I put my 1.6 in. with the adapter plate in it will be 1/4" farther back

Is that why I had such a hard tim installing the motor mounts? I put the tranny bolts in first and had a heck of a time lining up the motor mounts, I guess I can go redo it,.Just move the tranny bolt hole back 1/4 "
