W56 differences
« on: Jan 04, 2019, 05:27:28 AM »
Good morning! I'm getting parts (I think) this weekend to begin the process for swapping Toyota running gear into my Daihatsu Rocky. I have posted in the axle forum about the 8", but now I'm confused about the transmission.

Two good swap pages show 22res swapped into a Rocky, and they used a W56 5-speed behind it. However, if I'm right, the W56 A and B have a shifter further back, and the C and later moved the shifter further forward. I think the "back" one is the top shift or rear shift?

The one thread that is more specific used an '87 4Runner 5-speed, which should be a W56 B. Is this correct?

If so, I can't used the 5 speed out of the '89 I'm looking at tomorrow.

Then...question 2, is the A or B better? Or, does it not matter?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you...I had not seen that second link before.

Aside from the make up of part of the tranny, with iron vs. aluminum, is one of the A or B better than the other?

A or B doesn't matter.

More B's, so easier to find.
