In most cases you should have the option of using your truck tail housing or the one from the doner transmission. In earlier model transmissions I have seen this turret in the middle of the housing. This plate is only about an inch 2 cm thick and holds the input and output bearings for the center of the transmission.
And like all car enthusiasts, Chez knew this would be expensive, which is why he set out to perform the swap by himself, saving as much of his hard earned money as he could. First, lightly lube all the pivots on the clutch fork with heavy grease. Horror stories of catastrophic motor failure and excessive oil consumption scared away interested buyers. To improve synchro life and reduce wear, we recommend a change to a synthetic gear lube after break in. If there is any doubt as to its condition, replace it with a Mazda stock part. This lapping is accomplished by rotating the ring against the gear with fine valve-lapping compound in between for 20 to 30 seconds.
It makes things a lot easier if you degrease both transmissions before working on them, make sure to degrease the inside of the bell housing as well. As a side note, if anyone comes across a mpv v6 manual Transmission, sell me the bellhousing, because v6 b series swap. There are many intricate parts and fasteners. Can you confirm if the bellhousing swaps between the two? While the basic gear assembly was strong, the synchro rings were somewhat fragile. But, anything that keeps spinning unlike pistons and that won the 24 lamans the first time out gets my vote. This problem can usually be identified by deep grooves worn in the pressure plate diaphragm spring fingers. If you think about it, it makes sense.
Im pretty sure solomiata has a ratio guide on their site. Its a matter of cost compassion and commonsense. Emitting 255 hp and 294 Nm of torque, it was one of the first rotaries to put Mazda on the map. All I was interested in though was the 5th gear. This is where I'm assuming things.
The short black line is an alignment pin there are 2 of these. The gear assembly must line up perfectly with the bell housing to get it back in, not only do the bearings have to slide in place but the shifter rods as well. Being very rich will also help here. That said, these may prove harder to find, and the swap is not as well documented. Start by removing the bolts off the input bearing housing and remove the housing. The three slots cut in the rings to engage the synchro keys weaken the rings so much that any unusual force causes them to bend at the slots, and once they distort, replacement is the only answer.
It is at the very end of the transmission. Unfortunatly since we first wrote this article around 2003 most if not all of these companies have gone out of business.

The primary cause is lack of adequate oil around the bushing to cool the housing.
However, kits are also available for it.

Now though, the big problem is inefficiency. Mobsters also used them to throw their enemies out! Above is the 91 B2200 Tail housing, you can see the shifting turret on the top at the very end.
The adaptor probably requires a certain starter to work. They may not be completely plug and play, but do cut down on required fabrication work. When replacing transmission parts, be sure to use the correct parts for your particular year, model, and chassis number. For 20B information, is particularly informative.
