It will fit if you:

1. Use an adaptor for the new front wheel engine and the original transmission of your suzuki ( ask your machinist)
2. Have your propeller shaft from the transmission to the independent transfer case resized depending on the outcome of your engine mount.
3. adjust the bracket of your transfer case if you need more room for the propeller.(optional)
4. you dont need to change gear ratio if you plan to use the same tires

Samurai 5th/reverse rail fork stuck


Hi Amanda

This sounds very much to me like a linkage problem. I think your best bet would be to take it to your mechanic for him/her to have a look at it and fix it properly.

Hope this helps.

Why wont my samurai transmission input shaft turn.


5 speed

is it still on the bench>????????
i rebuild many

1: the bearing in the front is bad.
2: the tranny is locked, bad shifter rail, detents
3: 4th gear is not a gear, it just locks themain shaft.
so if in 4th gear and input is jammed, that means
the cluster is jammed. if the cluster jams for any reason
it will be jammed in neutral. too, because the cluster always spins.
bottom counter shaft is called cluster. to old folks.

tell me , with the lid off tranny box.
did you test all gears, by moving the collars 1 by one.?????
each gear,? if not why not.????? never skip this step or fail big time.

then test all rail detents to make sure they all work(lid off)
and never allowing 2 gears selected at once (job1)????

then put in a new shifter sheet and try all gears on the garage floor,
all assembled!
then turn input by and and shift all gears on garage floor
i even use a huge drill motor to test tranny on floor, with tape on tip
of pilot shaft. and shift all gears,

this is all basics, , never just throw it together, do the tests.
as you go.

this one is close,

Why my sidekick wont shift to any gear


please post year, for best help, please.
ok, its a real Samurai or Sammy with kick engine, (so common latter)
I will answer for real Suzuki Sidekick.
the car came in many forms. 4wd, 2wd a, 3sp, 4sp and 5sp M/T
sold in all permutations.
but since you used the any gear, word.
ill roll dice on A/T automatic transmission, my 3 cars are all M/T.

The A/T. will not 3sp chase many ways to not shift. its 100% mech.
and all you can do is check levels.
the A./T 4speed, is electronic shifted, (know it well) and the TCM
shifts car no matter what. and has scan codes to tell you what is wrong, and has limphome mode to still shift and skips 1 gear.
the M/T 5speed, has a bad shifter tip plastic, if it cant shift.
if you force it in to 1st (ask how) and car dont mover, the clutch is bad.
ask how to go father, we can easy.

I lost 5th and reverse shift in my 91 samurai. I pulled the trans and found that the arm where the shifter goes into 5th and reverse is sticking in the up position, instead of dropping back down. I have...


You know the thing is 20, 10 years beyond its service life. Something has lasted twice its projected life and you are disgusted? Find a used transmission with much lower mileage and install it, obviously you have the skills to R&R, or find a rebuild kit and rebuild the transmission. It may be cheaper in the long run to scrap it and find another vehicle.

2000 suzuki jimny transmission not moving in gear engin reve up


Hi, my car does not change gear during driving. I am told the transmission is stuck in 3rd gear. Even when taking off from a complete stop, I have to rev the engine before the car moves. Sometimes after a long drive the engine would switch off and only start after a 10 minute break. What could be the problem?

Transfer case removal


Suzuki Samurai/Sidekick/Tracker 1986-1998 Repair Guide
Transfer Case Assembly - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Samurai Models
Even the 2WD Samurai uses a transfer case. Rather than use a straight line driveshaft from the transmission to the differential, the Samurai leaves the transfer case in place and replaces its internal working with a simple offset gear mechanism, thus keeping 2 of the 3 driveshafts used in the 4WD vehicle.
  1. On 4WD vehicles, remove the transfer case shift lever.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Drain the oil from the transfer case.
  4. Matchmark and remove the driveshafts from the transfer case assembly. Not all of the driveshafts need to be completely removed from the vehicle, just unbolted from the case flanges. In most cases, the shaft or shafts on one side of the transfer case can be repositioned and supported out of the way.
  5. Support the transfer case using a suitable transmission jack.
  6. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the transfer case.
  7. On 4WD vehicles, disconnect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  8. Remove the three mounting bolts and/or nuts securing the transfer case to the chassis, as applicable.
  9. Carefully lower the transfer case from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position and install the transfer case. Tighten the mounting bolts to 159-248 inch lbs. (18-28 Nm) and/or the mounting nuts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (25-34 Nm).
  2. On 4WD vehicles, connect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  3. Connect the speedometer cable to the transfer case.
  4. Properly refill the transfer case with an approved type of gear oil.
  5. Align and install the driveshafts to the transfer case.
  6. On 4WD vehicles, install the transfer case shift lever.
  7. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
Sidekick, Tracker, Sidekick Sport and X-90 Models
On these models the transfer case is bolted to the transmission and takes the place of the 2WD transmission's extension housing. Therefore, transfer case is removed or installed as part of the transmission assembly.

Hope this help (remember rated this and comment).

Look on the transmission near the bell housing, this is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Loosen the nut and pull the end out. Turn it manually by hand to see if it is turning and inspect it for damage. This is usually the spot where the cable breaks. You may find it loose and stuck in the transmission when you remove the cable. You can take the broken end out with a pair of needle nose pliers.
Please remember to rate this fix.
