so the problem is that you cannot get it into gear from a stop
(grinds trying to force into gear) . if you have a clutch pedal, what I mean is that clutch pedal has pressure behind it,moves up and down by itself, then its a clutch assy needs replaced.clutch disc/pressure plate/release bearing. if there is no pedal,falls to floor, its either clutch slave or clutch master failure issue(lost all fluid). but nothing points at needing a transmission,it should be fine

The use of R134 came in the early 90's. The addition of a can or two of R12 would be expensive in the "86 but I used R134 when I changed the compressor (no freon to save) and it worked. The kit has a label to keep others from adding the wrong freon. The belts are different on the 1st and 2nd generation legend.

back fire is due to a wire in the wrong place or valve sticking check firing order again. also check under cap (providing you have a distb) for condensation

If theres no water in the oil I wouldnt worry about the coolant right now it could have just leaked out.Could be alot of things .Check for fire after the start and shutdown first with the key still on after it turns off. Then check to make sure the fuel regulator is working and the return line to the tank isnt restricted.Was the camtoothed wheel damaged???Does it have a crankchaft sensor???Is it dual overhead cam???You can reset the comp. by removing batt. cable for about 5 min.

Did you check for a switch at your pedal that may be faulty? Power in at one side, and out the other when pedal depressed.
