The kit consists of a steel adaptor plate which converts the Nissan VH4# bolt pattern to a standard Chevy bolt pattern. The adaptor plate measures 25mm in length and is located to the Nissan VH4# engine using the original 9.5mm dowels, the adaptor is fitted with 2 x 5/8" dowels as per a standard Chevy engine. This adaptor plate is then coupled to one of our MFK605 aluminium adaptor housings which then couples the new engine to the original petrol or diesel Patrol bell housings.
The MFK605 adaptor housing measures 72 mm in length and when added to the 25mm steel adaptor plate spaces the new engine away from the irregular shape of the Nissan Patrol firewall.
The Nissan VH4# crankshaft is is fitted with hi tensile studs and an adaptor that supports the new flywheel. The flywheel utilises the original Nissan auto flex plate and ring gear. The flywheel is drilled and doweled to accept the Chevy pressure plate. The new crankshaft adaptor is machined internally to accept the spigot bearing. No firewall modifications or re positioning of the original transmission is required.
A Chev 11" or 12" clutch kit is used for this application.Kit contains:
