Tranny on diesel

I've read the Keltic systems diesel conversion. I'm curious why the zuki tranny was used. Could you just use the north-south tranny made for the engine? Is it too long, linkages too difficult? I want to convert my zuki to a diesel, but I can't afford that pricetag. A engine tranny combo out of a junkyard would cost probably only a third of the Keltic system. There is another good thing about diesel powered vehicles also, if you get hit in the rear end, you don't explode or burn up!

Re: Tranny on diesel

well i probably think it has to do with that the turbo diesel is out of a front wheel drive vechical,or the fact that you wouldn't have to adapt in a new tranny,like the engine swap wouldn't be e'nuff for one day :-)

Re: Tranny on diesel


Outside of the differences between fron and rear wheel drive transmissions, the VW tranny is too large to fit in a Samurai. You would have to cut the floor and enlarge the tranny hump to make it fit.

The Zuk trannys are holding up well though. We've put thousands of miles on ours and have really thrashed it on the trail with no problems at all.
