This is the mod I did to my trans mount for the 5 speed swap back in the mid 80's.

These pictures are courtesy of a Ratsun member that documented the mod. Unfortunately I can not find his post.















How to measure for drive shaft.

I have a 210 5-speed in my 521 with no modifications. What gearbox did you use? 83 280zx?

I used a Z20 five speed in my 70 521back in the early 90's.

You can use any long 5 speed, roughly 31.5 inches long, that is mated to an L motor. Car or truck.

I always go to a 1 piece drive line.
