I had somebody make me the tranny and motor mounts and then I did the rest. There is a guy in Pomona that does the whole thing. Email me on [email protected] and I can give you his phone #.

Get a speedo pinion unit from a early KA powered Nissan pick up. It will bolt right in place of the electronic sensor and hook up to your speedo cable. The part numbers are in the Nissan comp book. Mine is a 21 tooth.
