Well I finally got my transmission opened up. Took patience and alot of wd-40 to break things loose. Another great looking Datsun gearbox considering the age. 3rd one I have opened and the 1st 63 series for me. Gears are considerably different than the 60 series. Could use a set of bearings and maybe synchros, but other than that, this will be good to go. No binding or unusual wear.

DD...I did get a hold of a service manual for the 200sx S10 and found this exact transmission. However the 200sx had the L18/20 engine so the only difference is the bell housing and input shaft??

I posted some pics because I couldn't find many of the internals on this site. Unless they are buried on someone's thread. Post to Tech Wiki if they are of benefit.

I think I have a buyer. If it doesn't work out, I will post on classifieds. Might be able to ship overseas if the gear assembly is shipped separate from the housing to keep the weight down. 2 packages instead of 1 big one.

Good pics, will come in handy as I have one that I need to pull apart and inspect. Now I know what to expect. Thanks.

Is the whole transmission the same as a 63A dogleg from a Stanza or a 180B, other than the bell housing (and maybe a longer rear extension housing?) and input shaft?

Great pics!

* front case differs (A-engine bolt pattern vs L-engine bolt pattern)
* Input shaft has a different diameter spigot but splines are the same
* Clutch disc is the same
* gear ratios are the same
* Output yoke is same diameter (larger than 60 series prop shafts)

Those gears look like the 60L five-speed (which is also a dogleg 5-speed). Just a little smaller (60mm shaft spacing vs 63mm)
