WOW
thats awesome! I was looking at the one from Wholesale Automatic Transmissions in Australia. Theirs is pretty fancy with a programmable computer and I believe a manual torque converter lock up, linky here
The problem with that kit is the price! It has very nice features but a lot more than I want to spend on it. It's very nice to know there are other options out there. For my needs I really hope the Delica TCU works out.

Thanks,
Adrian.

hey mate, was reading through your build here, I have a Pajero here that has a sad 4m40 in it and I have got a 4m40 from a delica to swap into it.

I see that where the dip stick goes in the pajero is through the block and that hole has to be drilled on the delica block.
Do you know what size I need to drill, was going to try get hold of a reamer as well to suite as its only an o ring at the base of the dip stick that seals it up.

I too was thinking a solid axle swap up front with a Toyota Hilux setup as they are reasonably easy to get hold of in New Zealand but have to make the beast go first!!

Cheers

for future reference: sorted the hole issue. drill down in the same spot with a 12mm drill bit then swap to a 10mm and finish the hole the rest of the way thorugh, maybe another 10 mm to go. going to a smaller diametre drill after the 12mm provides a shoulder the dipstick pipe to sit on. try and drill it the same angle. might even be easier from underneath with the sump off, should have the sump off anyway to remove any swarf.

Thanks for the Info! Sorry to reply so late, I have been working removing the cab from the chassis and what a PAIN IN THE ASS it is when you don't have a crane! I manager to remove it with an engine crane/lift and high lift jack. It took me an entire day to do, not the most efficient way its what I had. I will post photos up soon.

I am going to need to do the dipstick modification as well as locate and buy a sump pan, oil pickup tube, and dipstick. I have found a few sources on ebay UK but they do not respond back, so I'm still looking for those parts. I have been busy with other things anyway, cleaning up the chassis and getting ready to fit and weld suspension mounts. I will be modifying the trans x-member soon as well so I have plenty do before I need to worry about drilling the dipstick hole. Sorry I was not able provide any helpful information, but am glad you got it done.
