We carry parts for the following Datsun cars and trucks


Rebuilt OEM 5 Speed WIDE RATIO Transmission

1979 280ZX WIDE ratio

Photo is just a sample. These all come out of 1979 280ZX WIDE ratio versions. Once they are ordered I rebuild and ship them within 5-6 weeks now. These are low mileage cores that get a complete rebuild kit installed. Includes new bearings, syncros, gaskets and seals then a hot tank cleaning and a fresh coat of paint.

Fits L20B, L16, L18, L24, L26, L28,L28E

Nice direct replacement for 4 speed Datsuns

We carefully inspect each transmission to make sure you receive a top quality unit. Our licensed master builders have years of experience and make sure each unit is built correctly. We only use quality kits that we have trusted for years. This is the early 280ZX 5-speed with the 0.864 5th gear vs. late 280ZX Close Ratio 5 speed, which has the 0.745 5th.

We can also provide Rivergate ACCESSORY conversion parts for to convert the MGB to 5 speeds.

The 510 conversions will require a shortened / modified drive-shaft as this unit is about 31 inches in length. If you have not been shopping the junkyards for these units, please, be aware that these cars are now uncommon in the junkyards and they get around $500 to $700 for these transmissions, un-pulled and dirty. •

Ours are Rebuilt once ordered.
