Bell Housing Adaptor Kit to suit LS Series V8 to Nissan Patrol GU ZD30 (5-speed manual)
Our Marks4Wd Bell Housing Adaptor Kit to suit LS V8 engine conversion to Nissan Patrol GU ZD30 fitted with a factory manual gearbox.
The ultimate Australian-manufactured and designed full replacement bell housing conversion setup for fitting LS series V8 engines to the Nissan Patrol ZD30 manual gearbox. This custom-made bell housing is engineered and manufactured exclusively by Mark’s 4WD Adaptors.
The bell housing kit consists of a full replacement bell housing which couples the engine to the original 5-speed manual transmission. The bell housing spaces the new engine away from the irregular shape of the Nissan Patrol firewall. No firewall modifications or re-positioning of the transfer case is required. The bell housing is designed to allow the right-hand exhaust to cross under and give as much ground clearance as possible.
We supply an input shaft extension that fits over the original Nissan gearbox input shaft. This shaft allows us to change to the 26-tooth GM spline, allowing us to use a GM-style clutch with a much higher clamping ability than the Nissan clutch.
The heavy-duty billet flywheel has been designed for 4WD applications. It is 10mm thicker than the factory LS flywheel, which is prone to cracking. The greater weight also helps the engine maintain momentum at low revs when 4WDing.
The clutch used in this kit is a heavy-duty Exedy cover & Seco organic plate with a massive 1250kg of clamp load – this clutch will suit all N/A (naturally aspirated) engines. To get the best clutch feel and operation, we include a new clutch master cylinder and self-adjusting concentric slave cylinder, which is perfectly matched to the clutch.
The LS engine accessories (alternator & air conditioning) will require modification due to the position of the Patrol chassis rails. We can supply these modified accessory mounts for LS1 (VT-VZ) and late LS2 (VE-VF) style accessories. (see products below)
