A Datsun 5-speed transmission from August 1979 to 1982 Datsun 210. This can be from a coupe, sedan or wagon.
The input and output shafts should be 20mm (about 25/32") diameter and 18 spline.
The serial number on top of the bellhousing should begin with the letter "F" (FL, FA, FX etc. OK). The number "60" is cast into the right side of the main case. These transmissions come from the Datsun 210, but the model number for these cars, imbedded in the Serial Number, is B310. The model number for the transmission, FS5W60A, is sometimes found on the Serial Number plate on the firewall. This is not found on the transmission.
When you buy the transmission you need to get the gearshift lever, throwout bearing carrier and clutch release fork.
An alternate transmission is from the Datsun 210 before August 1979. It has a horizontal drain plug, rather than the vertical drain plug. (See photos below) It requires a more complex rear mount to allow removal of the horizontal plug. Add $50.00 to the standard kit price for the special mount.
Most of the Datsun 210 (B310, New Sunny, etc.) sold outside the U.S. had the transmission with the horizontal drain plug. These will work with our kit with the special rear mount.
In New Zealand, Australia and many other countries this horizontal drain plug transmission was fitted with a mechanical clutch release entering at the top right of the bellhousing. These can be modified to be used with the hydraulic clutch release on a Sprite or Midget. A fork from a hydraulic clutch transmssion will need to be sourced. A hole will need to be cut for a release lever where the casting protrusion is on the bottom left of the bellhousing. Holes will have to be drilled and tapped for attaching the clutch release slave cylinder in the boss of the bellhousing.
