  1. I wanna say thank you to everyone that was here and helped me out. Y'all are great.
  2. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I bought it from someone in New Jersey. He bought it from someone in Kentucky. They used it for drag racing. It used to have a 6 point roll cage. It now only has 4 points with the two going to the footwells removed. There were many things in this car that were butchered or slapped together haphazardly. Example : They cut the springs all around to lower it. If you lifted the car you were able to rotate the springs by hand. So who knows if this person just said f' it when rebuilding the transmission (if it was rebuilt) and left the bushing out, or something entirely differen
  3. During my drive I was feeling the shifter every now and then in different gears. I would say at most there was what I would describe as a buzz rather than a vibration. (I think vibrations as a little more violent.) I guess the seal was doing just barely a good enough job of preventing the rattle. Obviously didn't prevent the leak without the help from a bushing.
  4. Here is the video after I installed it with the bushing. It absolutely does not move as much as before. I did notice that the transmission mount does move at the red mark. I also hear a clunking sound coming from the tail housing or the shifter: Sorry for the wind.
  5. I tried it on the slip yoke and there was very little movement. I installed it with the hole at the bottom since I saw there was another channel up there. Woops? I went out for a quick drive on the highway got back and no leaks. Before I would park it and immediately would see drips coming from at least half the length of the propeller shaft tunnel.
  6. Thanks! I might take you up on the offer. I ordered the omega machine tools bushing and installed that right now. I put it in the freezer last night and it went in with only some effort. This bushing I have only ever mentioned when talking about 5 speeds, so I'm about to find out if there is a reason for that.
  7. I think I found my issue.... There is no bushing.... 💀
  8. This is the amount of play the yoke has:
  9. So will a National seal #710324 not work?
  10. Hey thanks for the info. I had actually already ordered that part from Omecha Machine back in November and forgot about it. Apparently they did too. I called them and they told me that they changed part order systems so it was just never sent. I am finally making time to remove the transmission and give replacing it a go.
  11. There is so much fluid leaking out that it starts flowing onto the driveshaft and flinging it all over the undercarriage. I used Valvoline Synchromesh.
  12. I've replaced the seal twice. Replaced the yoke because it was scored a bit.
  13. I spent a bit here searching key words like tail housing and bushing today. Only found threads talking about the 5 speed. I've been searching for any info every now and then for the past 2 months. I ordered a 5 speed bushing late November. Called them today to find out the order was never sent. I'm just going to give it a try once I get it. It pukes up way too much oil for it to be drivable either way. Might give up on the 4 speed I have and find something else to replace it.
  14. Any time I search for a bushing I only find one for the 5 speed https://ampdistributing.com/collections/nissan-rwd-fs5w71/products/1977-up-nissan-datsun-5-speed-manual-transmission-extension-housing-bushing This also coincides with a rebuild parts list someone shared with me here: The bushing being near the bottom. Part number Nissan-62
  15. Would the tailshaft housing bushing for a 5 speed (fs5w71b) fit a 4 speed (f4w71b)? I have a leak after replacing the housing seal and it seems like the bushing is the next possible culprit. I can not find any info on a 4 speed bushing.
