So do you think that this car may have an LSD?, its got a D/R spd, the rear is sunk down in the weeds so I haven't been able to look. That would mean a 5spd d/r tranny with 3.7 gearing, is this a possibility? :-\
So, if it is a RX, then it has a LSD rear diff (unless someone replaced it) and the tranny will have a 3.70 ratio.

SWEEET THEN I'M LOOKIN FOR 56B!!! Sooooo just to tease my brain.The motor is tore down on this thing and could be put together. Now if I get this thing the body will probably go to the school for training so forget the idea of puttin the RX back into a car(thats if its an RX). HERES AN IDEA OR TWO!!! Can the complete drive train from front to rear be a compatible swap in my brat? or if motor bad (hope not it's a TURBO)Could tranny back to rear diff including rear disk work as well? I think this is a win win situation no matter how you put it together! What do you think? Turbo 5 spd D/R 3.7 lsd BRAT
You'll probably need new axles too since the turbo 3.70 tranny has 25 spline stub axles, the N/A 3.90 tranny has 23 spline stub axles. Most people that I have helped put 5 D/R trannies in BRATs use a N/A tranny and we convert a 3.90 open to a LSD.

Quick answers, tranny side, yep, yep, yep, and yep.
the spline your talking about is the end on hubside or tranny side? I guess thats why you say different tranny? then use LSD inners to convert regular diff to LSD diff? final result is a 5spd d/r set up with 3.9 ratio and a 3.9 lsd at the rear with rear disk conversion? The idea being that 3.9 is the preferred crawl gear set up?

another kind of related question? this donor is a 4-door, what drive shaft is gonna work. I know the wagon d/r set up works in a brat with a hanger bearing mod, is 4-door same wheel base allowing for same mod or is there custom driveshaft length issues, and on to the one question I haven't asked if motor in donor (ea82t) is good what are the swap scenarios, 5spd d/r going in no matter what works I've got three of them.
Not totally sure here, I know that some have had one piece driveline made, other have used the two piece. With the two piece you'll need to attach the center hanger bearing to the undercarage. All EA82s have the same wheel base and use the same drivelines (match to the same type of tranny). I believe that the EA81 based BRATs are close enough to use the drivelines out of the EA82s except for the hanger bearing mod.

JF2AC75B8FE243700 Check it out please. and I looked under at the diff, no LSD But it is a 3.7. What is the difficulty level of headgasket job on ea82t? The motor is tore down a bit, manifold off one valvecover off, and some misc. stuff, I was curios if it's worth doing?
