New to the ToyotaNation... I have a 1981 4x4 Pickup and would like to swap the transmission from a 1983 4x4. Does anyone know if this would be a direct mount?
Gotcha, this helps a lot man. I think I will attempt to do it myself because the transmission shop is quoting me $800 just to pull the transmission and verify the bolt pattern. Anything I should know before trying the swap myself?Yes it’s a direct swap, however the early transmissions aren’t as strong as the W56, which will bolt right in, but I do not know if you’d need to trim your transmission tunnel to fit the shifter.
