I've been following the related posts and have a few questions. Is there an open gap at the bottom of the bellhousing to engine block because of the adapter (no picture shows this area)? Why wasn't it made full round? Couldn't the shifter link and bracket be shortened about 1.5" to 2" to allow the shifter to sit closer to the stock location? Why not cut the rear crossmember on either side close to the bushing and offset these to match the chassis mounts? This could be done using a couple of pieces 1/4" flat stock.

I was looking at transmisions on ebay:

Would this one be like the 2wd truck/pathfinder (shorty) transmisions that were discussed earlier? There is no shifter in the pic, but looks like it just bolts into the top.

I think the driveshaft info needs to be updated, because I think the flange yoke he used was the wrong one, as austin (240hoke) had a problem with it as well and had to redrill it or something I guess.

 

I ordered my driveshaft the other day from Power Industries which is kinda local to me and I confirmed with them the flange that my driveshaft has now vs the 1 that Garrett has on the list are a lot different.

 

SHADY280 - I have a link for the z32 gear ratios but do not have access to my computer at the moment.

yes it can be done for a ZX as well, your driveshaft length would be different though.

anyone ever tried the tranny from a nissan v6 pickup truck? I just picked one up from the junkyard for a friend of mines swap into another pickup. I know now after running a tape on them that they arent any shorter than the z32 tranny's since they both measure about 29 and a 1/4. The part that appeals to me is the shifter location being right where that cover plate resides on the z32 tranny. The z31's also run the same tranny but appear to be longer, I havent been able to confirm this yet. The shifter plate looks the same as the fs5w71c's though which the trucks dont look anything like and actually look much wider. anyway, just thought I would let people know if they didnt already. peace.
