Kinda...... I just reused the dust shield that came with my 3rz from a W59 bellhousing (2000 4wd Tacoma).

What? How did it fit? I was under the impression that we are having these custom made for us, let me go check.....

Ok, I am correct in that the dust shield shown in the above pictures are indeed a Marlin Crawler Inc dust shield, however the Bellhousing is designed to be a direct bolt-in for a W59 customer, meaning that their factory clutch slave cylinder, release bearing, and dust shield may be used with our bellhousing.

Now the reason why we are making our own dust shield is because Toyota wants $12 or $13 for a factory part, and our local dealership just told us that they don't always stock them and we would be better off making our own.

Marlin also pointed out to me a difference between a Tacoma W59 bellhousing and a T100 W59 bellhousing, they have a slightly different dust cover bolt pattern and hence there exists two different Toyota dust covers for W59 bellhousings. Strange indeed

Marlin and I also discovered during this process that there is a 3.4 tranny out there that does not need the 1 1\4 in spacer.

Mine was a bear to figure out, but it is in and works great.

I now have a 3RZ to R150 to Atlas 10:1 4-speed transfer case.

The setup is 25# lighter than my old dual case setup and around 6 in shorter.

I am stoked to have my front dig back!!

FYI TO ALL DOING THIS SWAP....  you can use a bellhouseing off of a 05 and up tacoma vvti  4 cyl (2TRFE eng) they use a R style trans stock and it bolts right up to a 3rz-2rz I got one used for $100 at a wrecking yard, the problem is this are not very common in wrecking yards yet.......

Go figure! Now, does it fit the R151F and R150F from a 3.0 liter v6 or just the R150F from a 3.4 liter v6?

It's not the bolt face of the tranny at issue. How long is the input shaft on the 95 4Runner trans? 160 mm (6.5") or 190 mm (7.5"). The R150F behind the 3.0 liter v6 engine is 160 mm, same as the R151F behind the 22R-TE...

Once the stock Toyota bellhousings found attached to R155F transmissions became readily available, we stopped selling our bellhousing. The R155F bellhousing fits R-series transmissions -- what our bellhousing fits -- and because Toyota designed the new(er) 2TR engine block with the same bolt pattern as a 3RZ, it also fits a 3RZ engine -- also what our bellhousing fits. Therefore, our bellhousing is no longer needed and we've since discontinued it.

Regards,
BigMike
