W series Toyota trans adaptors
Posted 29 April 2010 - 03:26 PM
one of your fearless members asked me about a bellhousing to mate the Sub engine to a purely RWD unit, preferably the Toyota W series transmission, I thought it was a neet idea
the only trouble was is that my main man mellow65 lived a cool 1500 miles away from me, so he sent me some material in the mail
the first thing I did was to square the rear of the housing so i could set it on its back and get my centers
then I cleaned out the center section so I could indicate my centers
this one number is critical to the datum lines
then I could cut down the rear of the housing to the right length for the input shaft
after all that, a datum plate had to be built to hold everything in place while building the pattern, the bolt pattern is built into this datum plate and a center locater is placed in it
the existing belhousing is bolted to the datum plate
then a center dowel is placed off the datum
then the front plate removed from a W 58 Toyota trans is attached to the center
and that gives you a roughed in sketch to work with to build a pattern
the next step is to build the back plate on the bellhousing

the W 55 through 59 series Toyota trans came on everything from a 4wd toyota truck to a 2 wd Supra, they came on everything

I think this is a great piece of work you are creating!

I build a variety of housings and ship around the world and get a bit distracted
This is for the T 56 to the narrow block 4G63 Mits engine
This fits the R 154 to either the wide block or the narrow block or the EVO's Mits engine
sometimes I can dream, sometimes I can invent and sometimes I can build, but it dont work like an assembly line, sucsess is usually a series of small failures >;o)

then the new trans facing was put into place and indexed to the proper angle
the facing was ancored and the lower skirt was decided on for the proper drafting while casting
then each panel is cut out and replaced to build a conforming justure from the front of the housing to the trans mounting surface

I can't wait until I can run an AE86 with an EJ engine

Hot diggity dog, this is looking promising...
I can't wait until I can run an AE86 with an EJ engine
Ive seen a few pics of a AE86 running a EJ

there are two trans bolt patterns fit into the trans facing, one is for the W series Toyota trans, the other is for the R series Toyota trans, that way it will offer more selection for what you want to do
I like to build a little cleaner looking sides and improve the draft lines for the casting shop
its important to visualize when reconstructing the starter pocket, that this will shrink by 1% in all directions , so this pattern must be adjusted to a larger size then expected
I am going to leave the clutch controls alone until I assemble the whole unit and test the throw out bearing operation, the measurements are just too critical at this point to make a mistake
the trans bolt pattern is not traced out for looks, I build a wide bolt flange landing before the bellhousing walls are built as a guide, I need to know the bolt pattern before I can add structure gussets from the side wall down to the trans face plate
looks like this bellhousing is tired of all the surgury >;o)

I built a rotisary to be able to move the engine in any position and make adjustments as the build proceeds
I mounted up an R 150 Toyota trans to check input shaft length and some cenetering, it looks like it is coming along nicely

This is awesome!!! Are you going to be selling these?
kinda the idea, yea, once I get done building them:)
depending on the throw out bearing the cost should be in the mid $300.00 range
the design hopes to use all Sub hardware , like clutch fork, pivot ball and slave cylinder flywheel. starter and pressure plate with just a Toyota disc to finish the build
