this is my solution to mounting a 5spd. I used some rubber between the trans and the bracket and beween the bracket and the body to eliminate some of the noise. I also safetywired the bolts that screw into the body. I can't tighten these down too tight because of the rubber and they tend to loosen.

The 1978 B210 uses a different transmission than the 1979 and newer B310. This car has the 60-series transmission (FS5W60A). For more details and pics see 5-speed Tech Section.

P.S:
1974-1978 - Nissan B210 "Datsun B-210"
1979-1982 - Nissan B310 "Datsun 210"

the car is a manual. the trans is an A-series 5spd. The biggest problem is that there is no room for the reverse switch.

 Re: 5spd transmission mount
ah ha, so youre angelo, i thought as much
anyway
i was curious as i put a sunny 5-speed in my car and found it had two brackets that came off it which were not used for mounting the box (so i dont really know why there there) but i drilled out the holes on these and then by reversing the standard 1200 crossmember and cutting off the corners the flange running along it, as they interfered with the original mounts on the car after reversing the crossmember, it would bolt straight up, which left me with the standard 1200 rubber mounting, perferct, i was so happy when i realised this was possible because i thought i was going to have to make up new mounts in the tunnel like the guy i bought the box off had done. the main thing the made it so easy though was that my car was originally an automatic and therefore the mounts just happend to be in the right place after turning the original crossmember around.

sounds just to simple hey

another question, what the bloody hells that thing hanging off the bottom of the box, looks like youve wired an earth to it or something, if that aint crappy design i dont know what is, how is something like that hanging from the bottom of the box ever going to survive without being hit, then again i guess i rally my cars and worry about these things more than others, but still you must see my point

That would be a trans temp sender. I have wiped it off once on a really tall speed bump. The exhaust pipe hangs about this low and usually hits first. On the street, as long as you dont bounce over speed bumps, its ok. If you rally this would get wiped off in a hurry.
On the dog-leg 5spd, i think the drain faces back instead of down.

Apparently, using a solid trans mount with rubber engine mounts can shorten the life of your transmission. I have made another bracket that allows me to use the stock b310 transmission mount. I will post pics soon.

I would think it would put strain on the mounting points of the body and the box but not the internals!
