Tranny from a 1500 Midget

Postby rob66sprite » Fri May 20, 2011 12:40 am

Would a transmission from a late '70s Midget with a 1500 bolt onto a 1275? The Midget blew its engine and my friend does not want to rebuild the 1500 because he was told it was not as good as the 1275.

Not easily--they're two different engines.

You might be able to fabricate something, but a rivergate would probably be a lot easier...

He has found another Midget engine. I am still trying talk him into the transplant I didn't do!
