What gearbox did I just buy?
Posted 13 October 2013 - 06:46 PM
It was advertised as a 260z gearbox
But The bell housing says L4 NMCA
And NMCA 1# on the gearbox.
Just wanting to make sure it's not a s13 box or something.

I believe NMCA = Nissan Motor Company Australia and L4 = L-series bellhousing, so could be out of anything aussie-made and fitted with an L-series engine (ie not a zed)

Maybe I'll post some pictures after I've cleaned it up if it helps to identify

The only 5 speeds that are shorter are Stanza and R30 skyline. 180B SSS and Stanza 5 speeds are a lighter-duty box (also have a "dogleg" shift pattern). The only real differences between a bluey 5 speed and a 260Z one is the ratios and synchro type.

The box you describe is a common Lseries 71B type box, fitred to Bluebirds, 1970-1980's Skylines, later 260/280 z or zx's.
Your crossmember should be fine, the auto mount may be different to a manual box type.
