Transmission I.D Help please

Postby Datsun 1600 Nut » 07 Mar 2016 03:54

Hi guys,

I have 3 of the following transmissions but have no idea what they are from. Originally thought SP310 1500 Roadsters, but it seems the starter sits on the incorrect side. Anyone have any ideas at all? :?:

Regards
Jared

Dunno, but they look like the later 71C box shifters. Way too short to be 5-speed boxes, though.

I believe they are PL410 4 speed boxes. Found a service manual on www.datsun510.com that show a box that looks very similar with the starter on the same side of the bellhousing.

Weird, I wonder what the deal with the shifter mechs is, and why the 410 boxes would be so different from the 510 box.

I wondered the same thing Julian. Very odd, although they are close to the 64 and 65 1500 Roadster boxes, so probably why they were similar. These boxes go behind the E-1 motor if I am not mistaken. The 411 boxes look almost like our 510 boxes that were behind the R16 motors.
