TA71B #5 Transmission

Postby gsimpson2g » Sun Aug 08, 2010 9:07 am

Ive got this transmission for a 1989 240SX sitting around. Can anybody tell me if it came from a SOHC or DOHC motor? Its a manual 5-spd, stamp on the side labels it as the TA71B #5.

Did the 1989 coupes only come with SOHC engines, or did they have the DOHC engines in them as well?

5speed tranny is the same between SOHC and DOHC, so doesn't matter.

Hey I have that same transmission. i have a 1991 240sx and im almost done with the manual swap. The guy I bought my TA17B#5 from said its from a 95 but he also beat me on some other stuff that I found out later on. I just want to know what year the TA17B#5 was used in. Is it indeed for a S14 or a S13??

An easy way to Identify an S14 trans is to look at the bellhousing for the crank sensor holes.
The stamp on the gear box should not really matter. But if it says TA71B #5 then its a 95+.

Does that mean that a TA71B#2 is a '92 or later? I'm looking for a rebuild kit for the #2. I have 2 of these and one jumps out of 5th gear when not under power or compression. The other one needs synchros for all gears. Any Help out there for this problem?
