Hey everyone, great site! I read more than I post and has a great help.
Quick question, I have a 94 nissan patrol td42 automatic long wheel base, I'm just wondering if a tb42 manual conversion can be used in a td42 and if it will work or I need to find another td42 to do the conversion?
Thanks heaps

the tb42 and the td42 have the same gearbox however the bellhousing is different.

Based on that i think you could swap the bellhousing from the auto to the manual however sombody can correct me if im wrong

The bellhousing on the gearbox end is different between auto & manual. Motor end TD 3 bolt starter, TB 2 bolt starter.

Hey everyone, thanks for all your help and information. It's really appreciated!
dazz09 where are you located and how many Kms does the box have on it?
So basically I need a td42 manual box but does anyone know if I can use my bell housing to attach to the manual box? Or do I need to have both from a manual the box and bell housing as my car is auto with the bell housing
