Here's some juicy information on my journey to make the FS5W63A dogleg from a 200sx(I think) work with my 76 620 L20b.

The transmission: FS5W63A
Some models of the gear boxes compensate for the lean that the L-Series engines have (I have read about 12* to the passenger side).  The Z22 or A-Series gear boxes have a lean that isn't "bolt-in" friendly and require modifying the shifter or the floor or swapping bell housings..  

So yeah, a l20b from a 200sx had a 200mm clutch according to what I have read and I'm sure that the clutch diaphragm height is somewhere around 30-35mm??  I just didn't look too far into it because I'm bolting it all up to a 225mm l20b flywheel and clutch that I had new in box.  



Long story short, with the height of the new clutch being less the old clutch. The bearing sleeve was too short! So, I purchased a new bearing that came with the sleeve!
>P/N: Federal-Mogul Bearings DNF 01576-C  
So far so good, the new bearing to clutch fork tab height has increased by about 10mm and is enough to engage the clutch!


I reinstalled the transmission, mounts and slave cylinder.  Still need to install driveshaft and adjust the clutch and it's back to moving completely under it's own powAHH!

For future reference about flywheels and clutch covers, the rule is that the throwout bearing collar always follows the clutch cover, they are a mated set.
The 200mm clutch cover has its own collar
The 225mm clutch cover has its own collar
The 240mm clutch cover has its own collar
So if you change transmissions, you always use the collar on the transmission that you pulled/were using in the new to you transmission, and the collar that is in the new to you transmission needs to go away.
Now if you change flywheels, make sure you get the flywheel, disc, clutch cover, and throw out bearing collar, otherwise you will likely have to install the transmission more than one time.

Also the shortshaft dogleg transmission came in a few different configurations, L block, Z block, and the A block.

I know the voices are not real, but they have some really good ideas.

I'm in the new age of things and posting from my new phone, yo.  I actually have been driving the truck a little...  Need to get a new and better video of it driving on it own power!!  So awesome!!!

It's still smoking after new valve seals.  I meant to get it to the muffler shop this past week but got swamped at work and never got around to making the appointment.  Cylinder one may have either a ring stuck or a valve issue(or maybe even a headgasket failure), since the compression test yielded 130psi,  2,3,4 were 180,190,165 or something like that.

Not going to be able to dig into it this weekend unfortunately.  But I'm going to try some marvel mystery oil and do a couple cycles of operating temperature.  I'll report back.

Now that you've solved the #1 cylinder issue did you finish the exhaust system? How about a video?
