    Going by the flange propshaft mount an early 240z 5 speed, uses two piece propshaft?

    How can you tell it's 5 speed?

    I cant't. Was only a speculative answer hence the ? after my answer. It looks the same as my early 240Z 5 speed box.

    I would expect it to be a 3 part case if it was the early fs5c71a with the flange output.

    Didn't mean that! I'm not claiming to be an expert on this topic at all.
    Did your one have a flange and was it two part?

    Only kidding, can't recall to be honest, I was just going by the flange really.

    Plenty of 'B' type 'boxes had flanged type outputs, as indeed does the one pictured.

    There's no certain way of identifying it from a photo, except to say that it looks to be an FS5C71-B or FS5W71-B of the type that were fitted to many Nissan vehicles besides S30-series and S130-series Zs.

    Short of opening it up and counting gear and counter-gear teeth, the simplest way of identifying it would be to trace it back to the car it was originally sourced from...

    The other way is to attach a shifter and select the gears. My 5-speed is sprung between 3rd & 4th in neutral so If it doesn't go to the right and upward, you don't have a 5th gear!!

    No need to even do that, as the F4W71-B is quite distinctive: It has a 6-bolt cover on the top of the rear extension, which the transmission in the OP's photo clearly doesn't.

    It's a B-type 5-speed. Either an FS5C71-B or an FS5W71-B.
