There are 3 bolts that hold that in after you removed the axle nut and cotter pin. Its kinda of a PITA to get to.

ok im gonna do th e5 speed swap, went to the jy aand can get everything needed to do the swap for 250. i took off the pedals was time consuming, had to drop the steering column take out the lower dash which consists of taking part of the upper dash off as well, the pedals come out as a somplete assy brake and clutch 8 bolts hold it in, the i removed the clutch cylinder(2 bolts a pin and a r clip) un fixed the brake pedal from the master cylinder (1 pin and a r clip) then i took off the shifter(4 bolts under the car past the heat sheild 5-6 10mm bolts) past the exaust (4 17mm bolts) pretty much everything on the 5 speed the auto has mounting holes for didnt kno it was this easy. got all the motormounts. clutch cylinder lines, cylinder, cylinder cooler, flywheel, clutch, pressure plate. going tomorrow to pick up everything but the transmission and start installing the pedals.

got a few questions tho for the ppl that kno more than me

is the wiring harness base like the car is (meaning does it have all plugs like the car has all mounting holes)

whats my lsd options for the 5 speed


going to do this in the up coming week so ill have pics for all as always in this thread thanks in advance!

dont have the tranny in as of yet but i do have in the pedals, was a pain in tha a$$ because of these lil dagnabbit clips and the fat wiring harness took off the 7 bolts (4 nits and 3 bolts) and had to work and giggle it out. the other one slid right into place and bolted up like a champ. connected the slave cylinder, and the brakes mstr cylinder. painted the motor mounts, connected the clutch slave, got the replacement boots to the clutch fork and yoke coming in at nissan on saturday (26 bones for both) so now im just waiting.......

the pics
clips of eternal damnation!

well at least the input shaft bearing is still in one piece. if you still have it apart could you measure the differential or see if it's marked as to which one it is (R180 or R200 or?) please

custom tool time...

had to fab this up because i had no way to really hold the flexplate for removal. its a 2 way device i made out of a spare flexplate i had lying around. cut it, welded a wheel stud bolt to hold the bounting bolt into place, screw it into the block and your good to go. great for the torque sequence for the flywheel as well.








put in the flywheel, cover and tranny.

also when you get the 5 spd tranny ge tthe 5 spd flywheel bolts there is a major difference...



finished shots of inside...

missing arent that important, just showed the dash out of the car and the plastic clips that are gonna be a pain, my advice is to just take them out in the area and zip tie them..

I did the 5spd conversion on 2nd gen

I never did find a 2nd gen Maxima with a 5spd. I first bought the rights to a 1987 stanza, I had opened the hood and seen the RS5F5OA Trans number and thought it would work. Bell housing does not match up 4cyl vs 6cyl. I did however get my shifter, pedals, hyd clutch lines, and half my shifter linkage off the Stanza. I also am saving that trans as a spare because internals appear correct. I found my cross member upgrade on a 1987 Maxima with a Auto trans that had a tow package installed from factory (look for the tow ball on rear). Finally my transmission came out of a 1989 Maxima, also half my shifter linkage. Couple other thoughts: the trans input shaft seal was fun to change as it is pressed from the inside of the bell housing out (Why?). Had to split trans in half to change. The rear motor mount (you can probably do the swap with the motor in, I pulled mine out) anyhow that mount came with the hole on the top side of the ring. Mine was at the bottom of the round and so were all parts cars I looked at. I pressed out the bushing and flipped it over. Rear of motor still sits higher than front. I think it may be a manufacturing error, compare your parts.

Nice work! I'm doing the same to my 88'. Everything is in place except that half dust cover piece pictured at the middle right of your picture, and one of the shifter linkages. One side is self explanatory, do you know how the other side goes on? I think I have it halfway figured out. I didn't take pictures of that part when I removed it, and it's been a while since I did it.
