putting a tracker trans in my sammy
Hello to all...
I came across a deal on a 1.6 8 valve engine/trans combo that is too cheap to pass up. ( geo tracker w/ 5 speed ) I haven't picked up the combo yet so I don't know all the details...
My original plan was to swap the 1.3 in my sammy out with the 1.6. Things changed when 4th and 5th gear went out in my stock samurai trans last night. I've read the millions of articles about the engine swap, but nobody ever uses the sidekick/tracker trans with the swap. Why is this? What issues would I have with putting the complete tracker engine trans combo in my samurai?
Would it be easier to just rebuild my sammy trans and mate it to the 1.6 engine?
Thanks to all who can shed any light on this.
