nissan transmission compatability??
Posted 31 January 2010 - 07:34 PM
i used to have a 1992 legacy wagon with an auto, the 4eat died a horrible death as most doo- so i pulled it and took it to a trans shop to be rebuilt.
when i got there- the owner of the shop said " ah- a pathfinder , huh?"
to which i replied, "no, subaru"
he says" oh, same thing, same tranny"
he indicated that the trannies use many of the same parts, filters, bands and clutches, ect.
this makes me wonder if it would be feasable to use a pathfinder trans in a solid axle set up to gain a true t case, ect.
just thinking out loud. hell maybe you could pull the tail housings off and apply the nissan tcase...

i started researching this last year.from what i found there is not a cheap way to make the adapter for the 4eat to tx10 union.
however i do not think it would be diffucult in a proper shop...
the down side to all of it, is that nissan transfer case rigs are not popular , so the same prob remains.no aftermarket.
there are gear sets for the tx-10 and they are spendy as hell.like 1200 bucks .the positive side to it is that it is a 2.something low.......
the next step iun my evolution with the research was to get a nissan pathfinder version(with tx10 attached) and see if the bellhousing could be swapped with the subaru trans..i have a resource for this, just have not had the extra scratch yet...
be cause it truly is the mainbody of the trans that is the same between the two.
the new path i am on is a powerglide........
if you have any questions on my research, let me know. cheers, brain
