How To Identify Toyota Transmissions

Hello,

I just got an 85 Pick Up 4X4. I am wondering if you guys know how to identify which transmission it has in it. I dont know too much about these transmissions but I have been told that some of them are different. Thanks in advance.

As far as I know, up to '83 4x4 used the "L" series, '84 & '85 used the "G" series, and newer than that uses the "W" series, with an "R" series being used for the turbo trucks and the V6 trucks which have R151F and R150F, respectively (these are all manual gearboxes). I'm sure sidney has a number of links for your reading enjoyment.

If you have a haynes manual, it should cover most of them.

i have an 84 4WD with the g52 tranny in it but yours could have either a g52, g54, or a w56 i think. there is a plate under the hood just above the valve cover on the firewall. if you search the topic you may be able to find a previous post i know of. it was posted not too long ago here in the pre-88 forum. Sydney always seems to have some helpfull info too so i'd search posts made by him.

The only way to get a jeep where a toyota goes, is on trailer full of broken pieces. It's a Heep Thing

Does the 85 have a carb or is it EFI? The G52 Is a 5 spd used on carb from 8-83/88. The W56 is a 5 spd used on EFI from 10-84/91.

It does have the carb. Another question. What is the difference between the 2 and what are the benefits from one to the other? I appreciate all your knowledge.

There should be a metal plate on the firewall. The last 3-4 digits of the bottom row is the transmission code. My truck says R150. it is a turbo 5 speed.

Jesster1- The W56 is a heavier duty trans. than the G52. The biggest differance that you will see between the two is were the trans. and the T-case levers are. The levers on the W56 also sit back away from the dash more. To switch the trans. you may need to cut some of the floor to make room for the levers. If you are looking for the strongest, the R151 is for the 22RETC and the V6. The R151 trans. is cheap, but the turbo bell housing is a hard find.
