How do you identify a KA24E transmission for a Hardbody, as opposed to the manual trans for the V6 for these trucks. I assume that the V6 manual transmission can't be used on the four cylinder truck.

I found a D21 without its motor that has the five speed. I didn't see any marking that indicated KA24, but the hood was missing. There is a an engine code on the glove box door.   The starter was on the correct side for the four cyl.

A KA transmission is similar to an L series transmission. Bellhousing has ribs and the shiftplate is rectangular.





A VG30 V6 transmission has a smooth bellhousing and a narrow tail for the shifter.
