    Toyota Gearbox needed

    I know it's not the 'box of choice, but my Ram SC was fitted with the "Steel case" toyota box with a Dellow adaptor kit etc to allow it's use with 350 Chevy.
    Guess what, all that torque has finally broken the box. Not before the shortened drive shafts and Jag diff gave way though!
    My problem is finding a replacement box that will simply bolt straight back in as I don't have enough time etc etc to source the correct bell housing, clutch, drive shaft etc to change over to a T5 or R154 Supra box before the end of this good weather!!!
    Does anyone have one laying around?
    I have photo's available for comparison and would be pleased to hear from anyone who can help.

    Re: Toyota Gearbox needed

    Hi Colin,

    The same thing happened on my brother in laws Ram.

    We couldn't find a steel case box anywhere, we must have visited 30+ breakers including Japanese specialists none of them even recognised the box, we believe it could be Austrailian as the Dellow bellhousing is made in Austrailia.

    Eventually we gave up fitted a Jaguar 5 speed Getrag and asked Ken at AK to make us a adaptor plate. It was a fairly easy conversion. It has been on 4 years now and seems fine.

    I know this doesn't help you find a box but it may be a solution if you're totally stuck.

    If you can make it - MAKE IT!

    Many thanks Steve.

    I think I've got a replacement today from a later Supra, just need correct bell housing

    For those who are interested, the old box is a W50 as fitted to 78-81 Celica.
