Parts Wanted: Need a bell housing from an FS5W71B 5 speed

Need a bell housing from an FS5W71B 5 speed

I am putting a 240sx transmission in my Z and would like a FS5W71B bell housing to do the swap.  Looks like a bell housing from pretty much any Datsun/Nissan 5 speed from 75-83 will be right.  Also, I would like one of these in the pic.  Not sure what you call it, but it does something with the shifting rods.

That picture you show is from the tail housing, not the front case.  It's the "reverse check sleeve".

Four speed front cases/bells will work also.  You might have to drill a new hole for the reverse switch.  Easier to find a four speed case.

So, two separate requests - for a bell housing to mod for the SX trans swap, and I need a replacement "reverse check sleeve" for a spare 280ZX trans I have.  I only included a pic of the reverse check sleeve.  I have a spare 4 speed bell housing, but I would prefer a 5 speed one so I don't have to drill a hole for the reverse switch in a thin area of the casting.  

Hmmm,  I guess I could add an aluminum boss to that area of the casting...
