i have a 81 4x4 longbox with a 22r and a 4speed trans.

i also have a complete 81 diesel 2wd with 137,000 original km on it. it has a 5spd trans with the 4.452 1st gear.

i am trying to see if it is possible to swap the diesel into my 4x4. but i am having trouble finding a transmission to go between the motor and my t-case. the diesel has a removable bellhousing, so is there a 4x4 trans that will bolt up to the diesel bellhousing?? what about inexpensive adapterplates??

i don't want to go to any $$$$$ options like divorced t-cases or that type of thing. i am trying to do it with what i have lying around , can trade for and scrounge up or fabricate myself.


(amongst my spare parts i have a 1980 side-shifting 4spd with a removeable bellhousing. as well as a 84+ 5spd with removable bellhousing)

yeah the 84 is a 2.4 liter i believe and it will bolt up to a 4x trans. diesel was available in the 4x4's in 84.


the 81 is a 2.2 litre and only came in the 2wd's.

i heard a rumor thaat there is a cruiser trans that will fit.
