izuzu - Getrag swap
Wednesday, January 05, 2005 7:47 PM
alright the trany in my 98 cavalier (winter car) is makin some noise and we think the differential is shot, and i found a 2000 getrag that i could pick up cheap and swap in, i was just wondering what all would be involve and what would need to be changed to make it work. Will it bolt right up to the 98 motor? different clutch? linkage?

thanks <br>

It might bolt up as long as its the from same motor, but I think the mounts are different and you'd need to weld in a new rear mount... They do have a different clutch, flywheel, and linkage.

They have Cable linkage, as opposed to ROD linkage. And more mfg's than Honda refer to it as 'linkage'.

They link the shifter and the tranny right??
Come on they look like cables to me, and I hate it when people reffer to them as linkage because that is what Honda owners reffer them to as.

Lets all try to say shifter cables?? Can we?

Unless you know the actual technical term for the assembly that the shifter cables actuate on the outside of the tranny, i refer the that as the linkage. <br>

iam plaing on doing the swap soon i was looking for some info a few months ago, iam still lookinf to confirm what i was told. Here what i have so far

(this is a note i wrote to remind myself what i need)

i need

tranny, getrag, used

axles, getrag, used

shifter, getrag, used

shift cables and all other parts of the assembly, getrag, used

bracket on the tranny that holds the shifter cables, from a 2.4 00-02 getrag
tranny, used

CLIPS THAT HOLD THE SHIFTER CABLES DOWN to the
bracket on the tranny, from getrag, used

flywheel from a 2.4 00-02 getrag tranny, used

flywheel bolts, from a 2.4 00-02 getrag tranny, used

pressure plate, getrag, used or new, (i will prob go new)

pressure plate bolts, from a 2.4 00-02 getrag tranny, used

clutch disk, for a getrag, used or new (i will prob go new)

throw out bearing, for a getrag, used or new (might come with my new clutch, so maybe go new)

clutch master cylinder and lines/hoses, getrag, used

Rear tranny mount bracket, getrag, GM, new

tranny mounts, getrag, prob used

*MAKE SURE THEY GIVE YOU ALL THE BOLTS FROM THE BELL HOUSING AND THE PRESSURE PLATE TO FLYWHEEL, AND GIVE YOU THE CLIPS THAT HOLD THE SHIFTER CABLES DOWN, AND THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER TOGETHER WITH THE THROW OUT BEARING.
If you don't have these clips when you push the clutch pedal it WILL pop out of the bearing and you won't have pedal.




Speed sensors are different and you get a new one on the tranny, just tell them to leave the pig tails for the revers tail lights and VSS pig tail in there and just splice them in.


what do you mean by "SHAVING the braket a little to clear the Getrag,

Shaving I mean, just cutting a little off the edge.

If you take the driver wheel off and looking at the bracket, you need to
shave on the bottom right and the hole needs to go about 4 inches to the
left.

so a hole for the front has to be drilled 4 inchs left (to the front of the car) then the getrag mount bolts up to that right, and cut back a bit so the getrag will clear it

Yes when you DO drill a new hole the tranny mounts WILL just bolt right on,
but you still have to WELD a new REAR one.


Well see I am running Automatic center console which is cut on the side so I
can shift, but I am thinking the Gerag gears are a little wider.
