85 GL Turbo Question?
Posted 20 August 2003 - 08:52 PM
My question is, I have a spare manual tranny that came out of a 85 GL non turbo, will I be able to make them work without to much trouble? Or will this turn out to be a bigger mess then I want to dive into?
I have dealt with tranny's before and know what I am somewhat doing. That is why the call us shade tree machanics~!!!!

However, you will have to swap the rear diff.. Gearing on the auto(and turbo manual) is 3.7. gearing on the nonturbo manual is 3.9.. so you will have to get a 3.9 rear diff.. should be easy to come by, and you will have more low end oomph.. little less top end though
70mph in 4wd in a straight line shouldn't have roasted the tranny..unless there were mismatched tires or something else that would cause straight-line binding.. probably had other problems already, they just may not have manifested themselves yet.
