at this point I would suggest that he takes it to an accredited service shop or a shop that has experience with the make of vehicle
if it is a front wheel drive vehicle then the gear box is on the end of the motor (LHS) and is driven by a chain from the bell housing back down and into the gear box
You forgot to say if manual or auto but with all the information that you have supplied , A workshop manual would be a good starting point if your dad wants to tinker with the vehicle
Try HAYNES REPAIR MANUALS.com....It is a very simple job on that type of vehicle if you have
a service lift or a good set of tall ramps,,,I am sure Haynes should have it but finding the same year model Is hard to say.......But most clutch jobs on rear wheel drives arent that hard if you have the
tools and a trans jack and a good safe way to raise the vehicle................If you cant find one I will give you easy step by step instructions.......I am certified...27 yrs of service work auto/ med. heavy truck.....best of luck..........................................Metalpoet
Yes, However if you want to use the motor complete with trans, fuel injection, electronic ignition you will have to include the Engine Control Unit (ECU) Wiring, Electric fuel pump with return line and such. It would be a big job and very technical but a strong motor for your Nova.
If you check out faxonautoliterature you will find the original Nissan service manual for your car for $69. This should give you all the help you need to rebuild you transmission. I have used them myself and found them to be excellent for service. Hope this helps.
The Haynes manual is detailed enough to get you through the job, or you can create a free account at Autozone and they have an online manual which also covers this task. I can go through it step by step if you want, but essentially I'd just be regurgitating the information available from these 2 sources.
It's not a particularly difficult job, just a bit cramped, and make sure you have all of the necessary tools to hand so that you don't have to keep climbing out from under the vehicle, that tends to get old really quickly...
