Re: Track/kick engine AND transmission in a Sammy?
Shouldn't be any different, as long as it's a 2-wheel-drive tranny. You'd have to get some measurements to compare of course, but if you are using a 1.6L engine, I can't see any reason not to use this tranny and adapt the jackshaft between it and the Samurai transfercase.
Another thing to keep in mind if you guys go this route is that if you use the 4x4 tranny and use the Track-Kick transfercase, you can send the Track-Kick transfercase to OTT Industries and they will adapt it so that you can bolt the Samurai transfercase directly to it. Now you have dual transfercases, crawler gears, and no jackshaft. The set-up should be stronger because you get rid of the divorced transfercase set-up (less twisting and stress on the mounts). Of-course you might have to adapt your front and rear driveshafts to make it work depending on wether your rear transfercase ends further back in the frame. Just something else to think about.
