    Will a LC 4 Speed Trans Bolt up to an F motor? I have a three speed currently and 3 speed Xfer Case. &nbsp:Do I need any special adapters?
    The Motor is a '68.
    What are the best trans, Xfer years if I can find one.

    Thanks again for your wisdom.

    You need the 4 speed bellhousing, but the bolt pattern on the block is the same.

    Sounds Good, Will any year 4 speed with the bell housing bolt in? or are their specific years that it will fit?

    Thanks again.

    the 68 motor pattern will match the tranny bellhousing from "any" toyota 3 or 4 speed tranny....to mate to your motor, you must have the matching bellhousing for the tranny.

    exactly.....any year.... :D :D :D :D :D

    Now, don't forget that your 3-speed t-case will not just "bolt up" to the 4-speed trans without a special input gear and some other little stuff....

    :rolleyes: always something.....lol
