87 VL 5sp Manual Gearbox

Anyone tell me if a 5sp gearbox from a Skyline 3.0L will go straight into a 87 VL Sedan? My 5sp factory box is knackered, finding a replacement is near on hell here in WA ......... they are rarer than chickens teeth.

thanks.

i bought a skyline manual loom after being told thats its nearly exactly the same as the VL loom, completely different. im not even sure if it uses a speedo cable, it had a speedo sensor plug on it. i dare say there is differences

yes

i'm 99% sure the sklyine rb 30 box will fit onto your vl motor because the vls came out with the same motor as the skyline.

The holes in the brace that hold up the back end of the box i believe dont match up with the bolt holes in the box.....?
