Default W58 and W59 transmission the same?

So this questions just needs a positive answer. The W58 is the car (Supra etc.) transmission that is the same case design as the W59 (truck tranny with thicker gears). Now do the bolt patterns of the front of that tranny measure up to be the exact same as the W59?

The main reason for this question is so that people can use the W58 manual transmission adapter that allows you to bolt that up to the 1UZ bellhousing. This would make the W59 adaptation super easy if all you needed to do is buy a W58 adapter that already exists.

Please not that this would require a hydraulic throwout bearing to actuate the clutch. So in theory all you would need to adapt a 1UZ to a manual is the W59 to 1UZ bellhousing adapter and a hydro throwout bearing. This would be a SUPER cheap and really quick swap option for the W59. And the W59 will take a beating believe me.

Sweet. I'm putting my 1UZ back together today then I'll start posting pics this weekend. Sounds like the 1UZ auto bellhousing to W59 will be the way to go. That's going to be perfect.

Ed over at www.v-eight.com says that yes the w58 auto cad file for the auto to w58 1U bell housing adapter will work just fine for my w59.. I've sent the cad file off to a few shops for a quote..

Hey I can give you the info of friends of mine here at Motive Engineering. I can give you the email of the guy or I should probably go talk to him about it. He'll hook you up. They do custom stuff and I bet I could get you a good deal.
