LD20 which gearboxes fit??


Post by coldturkey »

I have cooked my LD20t Automatic Transmission and I am looking for a replacement.

The vehicle is a Nissan Largo van. I have heard that all L series gearboxes, including LD28 and L20 will fit.

However the LD28 gearbox I am looking at is a different length and is different all together, the rear mount is also on the bottom, not on the top of the box.

Can someone clear up what will work and what wont?

Many thanks,
