Morning Cliff,

This means you have the mitsubishi transmission. The manual five speed has a
stamped removable cover for the bottom plate, just like an automatic. I
believe if you open the driver's side door the code should be a letter for
the transmission, although memory escapes me at the moment. (It is 3:30 AM,
after all, and after a hard day of drilling and grinding)

An M5oD bolts right in there, and this is what is most commonly used in the
rangers/bronco 2s. It is very popular, although it does not have the
removable bell housing like the mitsubishi does. This is probably the
easiest to locate should you want to replace the transmission.

Advanced adapters makes a bellhousing for the mitsus to allow it to bolt to
a 289/302/351 with a hydraulic clutch linkage. That's why I keep mine!

Take Care,

Adam

Subject: One more thing

Whoops, I forgot to mention something. There are two kinds of mitsus. There is
the FM145, and the FM146. I believe the FM146 was used up to late 1987, since my
1988 Bronco 2 has a FM146. The FM145 is more scarce, but obtainable. Once again,
the tranmission code on the door panel would be helpful to you. Let me know if
you need me to look it up. You could always drop the transmission to see what
you've got.  You can be sure that you have the mitsus by checking out the
shifter. If you remove the black rubber cover, and you have a short shaft that
enters the transmission body once connected to the shift stick, then you have an
M5OD. If the shift stick is one piece, then you most certainly have a Mitsu. (I
hate this design. It doesn't allow you to easily extend the shifter, and pulling
the transmission requires you to pull the four torx bolts. )

Thanks Adam

I definitely have the Mitsu.  My door code is D; the trucks I see with
the M5OD have a code 5.  I assume I am looking for a 4X4 M5OD so I can
bolt up my transfer case.  Can I trade the output shaft and tailhousing
from a 2 wheel drive Mitsu?

Hi Cliff,

You can bolt in the Fm146/FM145 and the M5OD interchangeably. I have done this between
my father's ranger and my bronco 2 a few times already. It works, I have done it.

Have fun,

Adam

Sorry Adam, I wasn't questioning what you said.  I was just wondering
whether the replacement tranny had to come from another 4X4.
