When deciding to do a conversion, the first step is to select the type and size of engine you would require. You should consider things such as dependability, power, economy, speed, price range, adaptability, and availability of equipment and parts.
With reference to engine conversions, the Chevy V8 seems to be the most popular option. These adapter kits will adapt your Land Cruiser's transfer case to a GM automatic transmission that will bolt directly to a Chevy V8. Most of the time, these conversions require driveline and floor pan modification.
- Adapter material is 356 T6 heat treated aluminum alloy.
- Kit includes adapter housing, 10 spline spud shaft, new TH400 output shaft, transfer case shifter bracket, sealed bearing, gaskets, fastening hardware, and adapter instructions.
Transfer Case: This adapter assembly fits 1963-9/73 10 spline transfer cases (originally mated to a 3 speed transmission). The drive gear has 10 internal splines and a diameter of 1.375”. These cases are equipped with a vacuum style shifter.
Transmission: This adapter assembly is designed for exclusive use with the GM TH400 transmission, 2wd or 4wd version. It is known as the heavy duty version of the TH350. The overall length is 24-1/4" long. It has a 1st gear ratio of 2.48:1, 2nd 1.48:1, and a 3rd gear ratio of 1:1.
*Tech Tip: When installing this transmission into a Land Cruiser, driveline modifications are always required. the transfer case handle will normally require additional modifications to position it in a usable location on your floorboard. front driveshaft clearance will aslo be an area of concern due to the width of the TH400 transmission pan assembly.
*Note: It is not practical to adapt an automatic transmission to the Land Cruiser's 6 cylinder engine. The length of the engine, coupled with the length of the automatic transmission causes problems with the fuel tank, transfer case linkage location, and driveshaft angles.
