I've been offered a W57 Celica transmission locally... If I can acquire it for a good price I will be ordering one of your adapters :)

Another seller has offered me a gearbox (he has a few) I think the two marked with an arrow are all aluminum W5X transmissions (he also has two steel ones but I don't want those). Is there a way to tell if it's a W55, W57 or W58?

Looking good. I'm waiting to get paid for an EZ30R H6 engine I sold (getting the money beginning of December) then I will order myself one of these nice adapters as Christmas present :)

I already confirmed a W57 transmission with shifter and front piece of the propeller shaft for 150 Euro (just under 200 bucks). Mileage is 223.000 km I guess that is no problem for a Toyota transmission (engine 21RC). Will be picking it up in the next few weeks.

So - is the remote shifter and bell-housing package now orderable?

I read through the last few pages but I'm not certain if it's out of "beta" testing or not yet?

Thanks,
GD

I have been selling bellhousings for the last 5 months, I thought you all knew they were done, the shifter is not done yet.

I have been building some other bellhousings for other websites, Its all here, I just get a little out of time

Right - we knew about the bell housing. Just wondering about the shifter and when we can get a package deal with both.

What's holding me up from buying is that I really am going to need the remote shifter as well for my project so I might as well wait (assuming it's going to get developed :-p) and purchase both at the same time.

No rush - actually I probably won't need it for a year - maybe several. But I want to support your amazing product for our little community here - that's the only reason I ask :o.

I'm not sure yet if I'm going to need a remote shifter. I plan on moving the engine backwards as far as possible. Without lowering the engine in the chassis I can move it back 3 inches then the starter hits the firewall.

I still have to figure out how much further I can go without repositioning the steering rack. I could also modify part of the firewall near the starter to create extra package space to move the engine even further back.

I will be building a custom subframe for engine, transmission and front suspension (using EJ A-arms).

even 3 in inches sill wont be enough probably.

there's a guy on lego central that has one mounted in his car already and i guess he has a remote shifter figured out, we are just waiting for some pictures.

What is the length of the adapter (ie. the distance between engine bell housing and the beginning of the actual transmission case)?

well,,,,,,,,,,,,, I better get back to work on this shifter deal before I cause a major depression
this is where I been, this is a Mitsubishi V 6 engine with a reverse starter molded into the bellhousing




I just keep cutting, fitting ,welding and shaping the housing
Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image



there is a difference in starter rotation that has been asked about , when you do a reverse starter application, its good to know you rotate the enging in the proper direction

Posted Image Posted Image

I hated the first starter location, there were two problems with it, first in didnt set the starter between bellhousing bolt boses and relied on only one main bolt station to limlt and deflection in the starter, the other problem was special shifter linkage would have been required
Posted Image Posted Image
because of the depth of the starter gear, I had a choice. build a custom gear or build the starter body right into the bellhousing, well I hate custom parts, all these parts are available over the counter so I spent the time to place the front of the starter pocket into the bellhousing

I should be filling it all in and getting it to casting this month

they are all 'R' series asian transmissions and thats why I built the pattern into it, they all share the same bolt pattern but the AX jeep has a waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy long input shaft
I hate spacers, so I built into the plans being flexable enough to lengthen my bellhousings to accept the longer shafts of the R 154 and the AX 15

where the problems come in is in the throw out bearing match ups and the cost of the custom disc, I belive the AX has a coarse spline disc, if you can find it in a 9 inch that would help

i hadnt thought about throwouts, or depths
i know you can swap an r series input into an ax15, but most people would rather not

as for the clutch, couldnt we turn a lrger disc down to the appropriate diam in a lathe? ill look into it more.

the reason im thinking this is- i can pick up a whole running jeep cherokee for the cost of an r series :D

When I ordered up my clutch from bills guy he said he could put any center into any disc.

So from the stand point of finding a disc it sure doesn't sound to hard, but then you have the throw out part.

yeah the cost is the reason I choose the pre 97 R 151, they came on all the V 6 toyota trucks so there are lots of transmissions and they were heavier then the w series trans

Oh and bill were you going to get back on the shifter thing any time soonish, my big mess of ugly really is what I'm going to use if yours doesn't come through.

Now shockingly as ugly as it may be, it actually shifts (at least in the garage) quite nicely.
