1976 hilux issues
« on: September 13, 2015, 11:03:54 PM »
So I got a 1976 toyota hilux and it's awesome! Except for the shifter, that sucks. I cannot seem to track down ashifter bushing kit for that track and the bushings are gone. Also if that is a w50 why do the later w50 parts not fit?

You're right... They don't go back to the 70s..

Can you swap out tht shifter assembly for a newer one that you can get bushings for?

I might have to, i also found a celica trans but that might put me in the same boat as before. I even found a celica supra trans but at some point this is going to get outta hand lol. More mods than I'm looking for. This is my daily/wirk truck not a project lol

Sounds like a job for someone with a 3D printer.

Yes, why yes it does! 8) At this point I'll count my blessings since the truck is in good enough shape to where I am only worrying about a shifter bushing.  ;D

It should have a W series transmission behind the 20R correct? If it does those bushings are everywhere. If not, tell me what trans you have in it and I will see what I can find.
