Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

1.6'er eh! welp that should fit it!!! they sold auto trannies to 1.6 8 valves but they were 3 speed. Now if you are talkin about the 4 speed one that came on a 16V'er then i think it would work cause I think there is no difference in there tranny bolt patterns but I am just scond guessin!

Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

If he is bolting it up to a 1.6 it should work. He will need to either pound out his transmission tunnel slightly or install a 2" body lift and I think move the t-case back some. I was thinking about the same thing later down the road. I would like to get that bigger flywheel/clutch/pressure plate in my Samurai.

Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

he already has a 3" body lift so he is good there. the bigger clutch, flywheel, pressure plate would not come into play being he wants an auto.

Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

Oops! I forgot you were talking about an auto tranny. I want the 1.6 manual tranny. Both should fit with the body lift.

By the way, I got my 3rd member in the mail the other day. Thanks a bunch.

Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

check gear ratios of the tranny befor breaking stuff ;o)

auto trannies are "gearwise" very high "numerically very low"

Re: 2wd kick auto in a sami?

alfred, true about the gear ratio's however the torque converter multiplys it's reduction when it is slipping. i have read that this multiplies your ratio by 2 to 3. this is why they say you don't need as low of a crawl ratio if you run an auto.

93 Tracker, ProComp, Calmini, 31's, Thorley, K&N, etc...
