Gearboxes

I'm just about to order the gear driving my speedo on my WB ute, and i just want to check that i do have a trimatic gearbox and not a turbo 350/400. I assumed it was a trimatic since it came out of a late model WB statesman, but any advice on how to double check before i order the gear would be great

cheers Alex

you don't have to remove it to tell just get under the car and see if its one piece or two piece as in a bellhousing that bolts to the engine and a rear section that bolts to that similar to a manual ,it's pretty simple to tell if you look @@@@@@@@@

since turbo's were deleted in 1982 and the motor and gear box came from a late model stato it would most likley be a trimatic, wouldnt you all agree?

I think the tranny service kit will be able to tell you. it has a gasket and filter in it for the trimatic and turbo 350/400 and 700s. Well all the gearboxes in all makes of cars. Ring up a Repco store and ask them to pull out a chart showing all the tranny service kits on it and they will be able to tell you the difference in the shape of the boxes. Or you can wait till i go to work on thursday and i will find out the pan gasket shape for you.

Do a Google Image search for TH350 or 400 and trimatic. You will find they are quite different.

If you look down where the dipstick tube goes into the trans case, you'll see both trans cooler lines close together on the Turbo & one goes back further on the Trimatic. Duncan
