The kit consists of an adaptor housing which couples the Chevy diesel engine to the original Nissan petrol or diesel bell housing. The new adaptor housing measures 72 mm in length and spaces the Chevy engine away from the irregular shape of the Nissan Patrol firewall. No firewall modifications or re-positioning of the original transmission is required.
An input shaft extension is supplied in the kit, the input extension shaft fits over the original gearbox input shaft. The new crankshaft spigot bearing supports the input shaft extension at the front and the gearbox input bearing at the rear so no movement is experienced. The input shaft extension converts the Nissan gearbox splines to standard GM 10T dimensions.
