Hello All...

yes i have been reading... and reading... and im a bit confused... I have a 84 verified by the data plate 2wd truck... problem is that it's a 4 speed. but from everything that i have read they didnt make them with 4 speeds... only with 5 speed...

so does that mean that maybe this was built in 83 and sold in 84 which would make this an L something?

is there a place that i can look on the tranny to help identify the model?

Thanks...


Transmissions

Pickup and 4Runner Transmissions with 1st gear ratios.
L43 4 speed 79 - 80 3.67
L45 4 speed 81 - 82 3.93
L50 5 speed 81 - 82 3.93
L52 5 speed 83 3.93
G52 & G54 5 speed 84 - 88 (Carb) 3.93
W56 5 speed 85 - 95 (EFI) 3.95 Manual Hub Equipped Vehicles 89 and up Have W56, 89 and up ADD vehicles have G58.
R151F 5 speed 86 - 87 (turbo only) 4.31
G58 5 speed 89 - 95 3.93 ADD Equipped Vehicles
R150F (6 cyl) 5 speed 88+ 3.83

Identification:
G52/54 84-88' are twin stick, use a 8 bolt center section, 6 bolt gear t/case pattern, 21 spline output.
G58 89-95' twin stick, 8 bolt center, 9 bolt chain t/case, 26 spline
W56 85-88' (single stick), 89-95' (twin stick), 10 bolt center, 6 bolt t/case, 21 spline
R151F 86 - 87 (turbo only) will have two housings of four bolts each just like a G52, the difference would be the large rubber plug on the bottom of the bellhousing.

X2 your plate should tell you what your gear ratio is, your tranny, your motor, year all that fun stuff..

Doesnt matter, you should be swapping it for a w55 or w59 to get an overdrive.

I think he is looking at basic options for 4wd and thinking its the same for 2wd. I have found 2wd 4 speeds up till 1988.
I just bought an 89 2wd with a 4-speed.

I may swap it to a 5-speed if I don't do a complete motor/trans swap to something completely different.

Your plate will tell you what tranny it came with. G40=4 speed. Noob
ok... so where can i read this information... Would love to learn but i cant find anything on reading Data plates... or information on identifying a transmission after i have pulled it from the frame... there should be some place on the tranny that i can identify it with...


thanks all
