    Greetings,

    Can a W55 bell housing fit on a W59 transmission. I am currently trying to do a swap on my 89 Toyota 22RE

    Old thread, but I want to update my 4 speed. I heard 5 speed will bolt up to bell housing. Will I need to get the 5 speed drive shaft, and cross member? We have a junk yard in Central Illinois that has 3 older Toyota pickups going this next week if it stops raining .

    Take a measuring tape like Erwin said. Mesure your stuff and at the JY
    *Measure your trans from back of engine to the trans mount bolt holes.
    *From the back of the engine to the end of the tailshaft of the trans.
    *From the tailshaft to the diff

    That should help. I believe all W series trannies will be about 25". I will say to pull the trans crossmember maybe even the driveshaft IF you find a 5 speed in the same generation as your truck and the measurements are different
