  • Toyota gearbox compatibility question:

    I was gifted a Toyota transmission from a Celica, the donor says. What year Celica, is non known. Here are some pictures. Does anyone know if it is useable in a TR6 with the Herman kit?

    That looks too early with the non aluminum front case. Is it even a 5 speed. First gen celicas has a 4 speed that looks much like that and I think the early 5 speeds could have had a steel iron front case but I’m not sure they would be compatible for the conversion.

      The tail piece looks totally wrong as well. The shifter cover mounting surface should be horizontal, not angled, and the cover is also wrong. Here's a W58 on the right. The one on the left is an R154. Yours appears to be an earlier W40 4-speed or W50 5-speed.

        Isn't Jim Cox on the Forum? He rebuilds W58 trannys and should know for sure

          Thanks for all the info guys. I'm gong to try and source a suitable Toyota box locally.
          The J-Type overdrive is nice, but too many issues with it over the 5 or 6 years I've had it in there.

          Always check the overdrive ratio (5Th) so that you get what you want. Marlin Crawlers in California really know their way around toyo trannys.
