Old thread res erection time.

 

So last May, I was ready to do the 5spd thing. Found a 620 parts truck. Was going to use the splined front half of driveline to replace my flanged 521 front half. Yeah that didn't work. Someone long ago had put a complete 521 drivetrain into said 620!!! :confused:  :o  :mad: . FUUUUUUU......So i did the 4spd thing again. However, Asain tranny swap is going to have a happy ending!! Finally got the correct shaft and me and Chet are playin trannies tomorrow :thumbup:  :thumbup: :thumbup:  :thumbup:  :thumbup:  :thumbup: . If all goes well I will have dogleg in my 521 by tomorrow afternoon. :w00t:  


I'm a witless bastard.

I much prefer Aisin Warner transmissions to the JATCO Ford based models. Looks like I want Nissan engines and Toyota transmissions.

AWWWWW YEAH!!!!! Finally got dogleg all buttoned up and bolted in 521!!!!! I love it!!! Already put 150 miles on it today, no problems!

 

1st gear is a little tall for my L16 but waaay better than the original 4spd. I gained about 10mph. Since my truck has 488s in it I now turn about 3550 at 65mph. I am very happy with that for now. Farmer Joe has a 437 set for me to throw in some nice summer evening.

 

Puttin it in was a little more troublesome than first thought.. Tranny is same length as shortty 4spd but is a little wider in just the wrong place so, we had to take the pressure plate off to get it up in there.

 

Measured the mount to have it cut down and that didn't turn out as we had planned. We got a 1/4" thick piece of angle, took the mount and ground it down another inch or so and had mount welded to angle then bolted to cross member then bolted tranny down. Was able to stay away from any cutting on the truck.

 

Oh yeah, and I am still running the original flange driveline! :sneaky:

It's low, loud and has a hood now.

If there isn't anything running all over the place you're doing it wrong!
