Our driveshafts have U-Joints that need to be staked in. A lot of driveshaft places don't stake in u-joints anymore, so while you can still BUY the u-joints for our cars, it's hard to find someone to install them
Well the years are clear enough, however the front vs. back is still confusing. Both people whom I trust are telling me differen t things. Is it simply...

After reading through the previous 14 pages, I do have one question that I didn't see asked. When you say the stock driver side motor to trans mount doesn’t fit, which one do you need to fit? Assuming I want to use all the bolt holes on the bell housing.
i have a brand new w58 stage 2 clutch but i just bought an r154 and am not sure if it matters that my clutch was for an w58. also i checked and my driveshaft slides perfect into the r154, even though this thread said it dosnt? and will my driveshaft from my w58 not work because it seemed like it would. Thanks.
Couple tips as I am in the middle of my R154 swap.
1. Do the test fits before putting the pilot bearing or flywheel on. Much easier to do a couple test fits when you do not have to get the transmission over the flywheel and perfectly lined up on the pilot bearing.
2. I tried the air hammer, claw hammer, 10 lbs slide hammer, and even some mild blow torch. The tunnel did not budge. I decided to do a twist on William's idea. I went to Walmart and bought a 2 ton bottle jack for $15. I installed the manual transmission cross member. I then wedged the jack in and pressed it up against all the areas I marked on the first test fit. I pushed the tunnel out as far as the jack allowed. It rebounded back a decent bit after I released it. Did this several times on several different points of each side where I wanted to expand it. Next test fit was perfect. Total time was 30 minutes.

That's exactly what I did! Worked like a charm and required no heat, moving of carpet, etc... I can't say it took 30 minutes though :/, definitely took me a couple hours. But I put the car as high as I could in the air, put the trans on a trans jack and test fitted that way... then cut the section out for the shifter hole.
FUCK ME!!!! Took forever on my Supra. Trans hall did not want to budge! BUT I AM NOW A R-154 MK2!!!
Anyway I highly recommend using a cylnder jack like the guys have been talking as of late. IT WORKS!!! Dont get discouraged because it bounces back into shape. Keep at it and push in the high points. I dont have pics to help but it WILL WORK.
what's up gang...? i have been searching for proper hood props. are they available anywhere? the ball joint at the hood end and then the bolt anchors the "factory" eyelet end to the inside of the fender...can't find them anywhere. thank you.
To help alleviate a lot of misinformation, or at least most of it, I decided I should make a thread for and about the (in)famous 6MGE.

The speedometer drive gear drives the speedometer driven gear. The driven gear is easily removed from the side of the transmission, even with the transmission on the vehicle. The driven gear drives an elbow connector that drives the speedometer cable which goes up into the back of the...
Finally, after several years of procrastination :banme: I have finally gotten around to writing up the Trim Code list for the US Spec 79 - 86 MKI & MKII's. Like the Paint Code information that I have in another thread, I was able to gather this information from many visits to junkyards...
