sidekick auto trans to the samurai transfer case.

Hey i was just wondering if a sidekick transmission output will attatch to the divorce shaft going to the transfer case.

I was thinking of putting in an auto matic.
I alrerady have a 1.6 l Sidekick engine, so in theory the tranny should bolt right up. If not please tell me so.

Re: sidekick auto trans to the samurai transfer case.

if i remember right, the ujoints are the same, so you should be able to swap ends n make the proper set up that you will need.

Re: sidekick auto trans to the samurai transfer case.

This sounds interesting to me. Automatic=less things to do in cab. Possibly might be nice. If I do this and put in power steering it would almost be like playing Nintendo!

Has anyone done this? I mean used this particular type of trany. How dose going automatic affect your power? Are there any automatics that will bolt up to a stock 1.3? If anyone out there has now or has had an auto of any kind in the past, how did you like it?

Re: sidekick auto trans to the samurai transfer case.

Hey Bill,
I am in the middle of doing a 2.o and Auto from a Tracker. The u-joints are the same, I just used a yoke from the Sami and the output yoke from the Auto and bolted it to the T/C. I did have to move the T/C back 2" because of the length of the tranny.

Re: sidekick auto trans to the samurai transfer case.

About two months ago I dropped a Tracker 1.6 and auto tranny in a red hardtop Zuk I have. Install was not too hard. The main mods were shortening the intermediate shaft to the transfer case, installing new motor mounts on the passengers and drivers sides which were relocated so that the engine sat 1 inch lower allowing the hood to close, and widening the tranny tunnel ALOT since we did not use a body lift. We even kept the Tracker fuel injection, exhaust to down to the cat, and the Tracker auto shifter. It is a bit slower than expected on take-off, but it has the stock gears and has 31X10.50 BFG's under it so that was expected. On-road driveability is nice and smooth and comfy. She cruises on the highway, but it's no rockcrawler without some gears. Let me know if you have any questions.
