Do not make the common heartbreaking mistake!
The engine oil pickup tube must be swapped also! The tube for the autobox will not pick up engine oil in a manual sump.

Cool, thank you for that.
Further to jims comments , be 100% sure that the new manual pick up seats correctly in the O ring to the block , I missed that detail once ( the bracket for the pick up had a very slight bend in it ) as a result it did not seat or seal correctly and the subsequent leak created a failure to prime and all that is associated with that. Nice work on the Box prep , In my opinion this is absolutely the best MOD that can be done to an Auto c900 !
Not too difficult but take ya time , Hopefully you have a donor manual for the bits n pieces .

Also use the shorter flywheel-to-crankshaft bolts, not the longer ones used on automatic flex plate.
