I'll agree with sounNdguy about the clutch--certainly not a safe option on an 8N. At least not mine...

But this reminds me about the car I had 15 years ago that I put a remote starter into. (For those of you in warm climates--a remote starter is a godsend in really cold weather!) The problem was that the car had a manual transmission. Those don't (or didn't then) have any sensor to tell if it was in neutral. There's a sensor on the clutch so you can't start it the normal way without stepping on the clutch. But that obviously needs to be bypassed for a remote starter. The solution that the remote starter's manufacturer came up with was in the procedure. If you wanted to be able to use the remote starter you had to "arm" it the last time you drove the car. You'd have to press the remote button while the engine was still running. That would allow you to turn the key to off and remove it, but it would leave the engine running. Then you'd have to get out and close all the doors. And then push the remote button to shut the engine off. Of course to do this, the car would have to be in neutral. But to ensure it stayed in neutral, if anyone opened any of the doors (there's a sensor for that--the one that turns the dome light on) between this time and the time you want to remote start the car, it would disarm the starter. A real PITA, but when it was -30, you'd remember to arm it every time! (On an automatic transmission, there was/is no arming necessary.)
