I finally managed to scrape together the time to fix the busted transmission to transfer case adapter this month. Since that required pulling the entire transmission and transfer case assembly I decided that now was the best time to finish the last of this project - installing the shifters.

Unfortunately the weather has had other plans for me. So, after two and a half weeks I have the shifter bracket mounted, the cables through the firewall and ONE shifter mocked up. God, I HATE working outside especially with as flaky as the weather has been here the last six months. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Running the cables through the tunnel was educational but not terribly difficult with the transmission/bell housing assembly out of the vehicle. A Rotozip with a metal bit made very short work of cutting out the holes. It also made cutting out the stainless trim plate for the interior really easy.

The travel on the shifter is exactly 90 degrees from HI to LO. I was expecting around 110 so that was a nice surprise.

Anyway, so far, so good. If the weather cooperates tomorrow I'll finish up the shifters, put my drive shafts and wiring back in and be back on the road.

Cables feeding through the tunnel. Insulation on one cable and the TJ boot I'm using to seal the opening.

Since I had the transfer case assembly out - the two 2WD/4WD switches and the relocated vents on the t-case and doubler. Also shows the shift cable bracket for the transfer case mounted. [Linked Image]

There are internal differences between transmissions 'versions' ...

V5MT1: Mitsubishi’s Truck Transmission

The bell housing appears to be slightly different from what I presume is the 'older' 5-speed bell housing to mine. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the other bell housing I had. If anyone has or can get pics of the other 5-speed bell housing(s) and post them that'd be helpful.

There were three differences I found. Face to face they're about 1/4" different in length; the fins (circled below, left) are longer in the 'older?' bell housing and appear to interfere with the pressure plate; and the mounting for the clutch slave cylinder is slightly different (circled below, right). Otherwise the bell housing bolts to my '97 6G72 just peachy. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

The transmission to transfer case adapter is different. (nice, new shiny aluminum thing on the right end of the transmission assembly picture, previous post) The transfer case end of the adapter varies from t-case to t-case design. There is also an apparent difference in years of the 'same' adapter - I don't know what the years or the differences are.

From what I've been told and from what I've read it appears that nothing on the front or rear mounting face of the V5MT1 has changed between 1 and 6 so the bell housings should bolt up as well as the transmission to transfer case adapters. As far as I'm concerned this is nothing but 'hear-say' - I don't know positively that that's true. I also don't know if there's a difference in input/output shafts between the 1 and 6.

Anyway, that exhausts what little knowledge I have of our V5MT1 transmissions. Maybe some of the others with a lot more knowledge than I have can shed some light on the differences.
