Highly unlikely i know, but if anyone has an already modified cross member to suit an S13/14 gearbox swap, that they're willing to sell, let me know please

It's quite easy to modify a standard one, but you do need to weld.

Nice find JB - 190 including duties or cost of welding tools (or hiring) + hassle factor. I personally love the bushing idea on them too.

Watching with interest Mr. T. Hope it transforms your motor.

Not pretty but it worked just fine - took about an hour with an old arc welder (that's all I had at the time).

I suggest - when looking at Kameari Engine Works parts - that going direct to Kameari's online catalogue is better than that of any of their so-called agents or re-sellers.

Here's a link to the page with the crossmember:

http://www.kameariengineworks.co.jp/...alogue-071.pdf

Note it says (to avoid potential confusion) that it's for the 71C type transmissions. It also mentions that it's suitable only for S30/S31 bodies dating after September 1972 production, with the later type mount brackets in the bodyshell.

I have one.
It needs a rework on one side as it was made before I acquired the "jig piece"
I can do this prior to selling it.

That does look good, and not having the necessary hardware or experience to weld one myself, I may well have been tempted.
Think i would probably of tried to get it done locally tho before relieving myself of close to 200 notes

The price in Japan is perfectly reasonable, and Kameari are a proper business.

Has anyone come up with a definitive distance that the bolt hole should be offset? I think the last time this was asked, no-one in the know came up with a figure.

I have seen a cross member that is already offset. Anyone know what this is from?

This seems pretty thorough: 1 3/8" apparently.
