If you are wanting to run a W59, you must use a W56 bellhousing and my W56 adapter kit. This puts the starter on the correct side (RH). You'll use the W56 starter, slave cylinder & clutch kit.


W56 Adapter





The OM617 to W59 Adapter Kit will mate your OM617 donor motor to your stock Toyota 5-Speed manual W59 transmission found behind 2RZ (2.4) and 3RZ (2.7) engines. All hardware is included, including custom ARP flywheel bolts, as well as the adapter plate, crank adapter, and new flywheel. The flywheel is machined and ready to be bolted on. It is highly recommended that you mark the posiiton of your OM617 flexplate in relation to your crankshaft before removing. This new flywheel comes neutral balanced, and you may not have any issues running it as-is, but your safest bet is to have it match-balanced to the OM617 flexplate. This flywheel uses a clutch from a 1994 4x4 22RE Toyota Pickup. CKT049 by Aisin is what I recommend.


Fitment is extremely tight with this transmission. The starter, in stock form, would interfere with the oil filter relocator plate. A low profile screw is included to reduce the interference, but some grinding will still be necessary. The OEM oil filter housing may or may not work.



OM617 model number is located under glow plug #5. It is typically either 617.950, .951, or .952. I ony need the 6th digit.
