Auto in a Sammi

I did a search and came up empty on this, is it possible to put an auto trans in a Sammi? I would think Sidetrack maybe but anything else. Thanks. Jim

Re: Auto in a Sammi

Yea a kick 2wd one with either a body lift ot modified tunnel.
(you can also use a TH180 out of a chevette. email Zooky about his. you might be able to use a lucky 13 adapter to stick it on a 1.3
I guess Aftermarket 4x4 has done a few.

Well if your going that route, do a 1.6 at the same time and use the track/kick 2 wd auto. you will need to
mod the tunnel though, I belive even with a body lift.

Re: Auto in a Sammi

LOL

Follow Randy closely. He's doing the OTT Kicker 3 install.

If you can scare up an auto Kick, and use the parts, you can go with the entire 1.6/tranny/t-case. This gives a lot of bang for the buck. As t-case gears won't be needed off-road.

With that same Kick donor, you can swap in the front gears, and use the rear axle to make a hybrid (fairly easy).

Sooooo, for the price of a used Kick, you would have a big-block, automatic, underdriven, low geared Sammy. Not to shabby. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Auto in a Sammi

yup, I am in the middle of my swap, its pretty strait forward. I didnt need a body lift or have to cut anything but I did have to (not so gently) move a little sheet metal to get it in there. It would be easiest to start with an automatic tracker for a donor. I have a Chevette trans (in pieces) on my work bench, I was gonna go that route but Glenns dual cases convinced me to go with the Kicker 3. You would like the auto.

Re: Auto in a Sammi

The 1.6 8v is one of the best mods I've done so far....
Tim is right on Jim, get a Tracker/Kick and you got all the parts for a great rig!
