hi has any one else put a td27t terrano engine in a d21 4x4 and butted it up to the navara gearbox?

if so has anyone else had clutch problems with this set up, or should i have put a matching terrano gearbox in my ute to match the motor?

See if a Nissan Cabster clutch will fit.

To the OP. I replaced a standard TD27 (manual) with a TD27 turbo from a Terrano. The Terrano was auto so I used the original flywheel and clutch and cover plate. Only issue was getting the tacho to work. Ask for more detail if you decide to go that way.

yes td27 is the the same as td27 turbo and yes they have the same gearbox as terrano you can use standard clutch or a turbo clutch kit .you can buy them off www.trademe .co.nz for around $230nz. i just use a non turbo clutch kit and its fine

Do a search on here. Just read a post in the last couple of days talking about the difference between the TD27 and TD27T with the tacho connection.
