Recommended Posts

I know that a lot of the older manual Toyota gearboxes like the W and G series have bell housings that can be swapped out to suit a particular Toyota engine. Do the auto gearboxes like the A43D and A44DL have the same ability ?

Yeah what engine etc. Some will be harder to track down a bell-housing that others.  People threw away the A43 etc autos like crazy but they are pretty good units, a overdrive and lockup version without computer control being the holy grail.

Thanks fellas.

The engine I want to put it behind is a Toyota 3Y out of a mid '80s HiAce van. According to some info I found on The Google it looks like these vans were equipped with either a A44DL or a A45DL. The box was top hung in the vans.

@Spencer I seem to recall that you are Brissy based - correct em if I'm wrong. If you know of any available units in the Brissy area, please let me know. Ta
