    Are the front input shaft bearing retainers the same on a SM465 and SM420? I am switching over to a 465 on FJ40. The 420 I have in it now has a machined bearing retainer to fit the 3 speed bell housing on my 2F. Would like to keep that machined retainer.

    The 465 retainer has a bellhousing hole flange that is considerably larger diameter than the 420. I doubt that they are interchangeable. The 420 is smaller diameter than the Toy 3sp bellhousing, so people commonly use an adaptor ring on the 420 retainer.
