Congrats and welcome! A buddy of mine had one identical to that but it was FWD. They are very nice daily drivers for sure. I agree and it would be hard for me to tear into her too with such low mileage. But maybe the old engine and trans can makes its way into another wagon for somebody else to save it from the junkyard. I can't offer up much info on which trans would work out better for you but I'm sure one of the wagon guru's will chime in.
Yeah thats true on selling the old 2.4L motor to someone that may need it. Hard to find Summit wagon owners nowadays haha.
you will want to save headache and use the RVR trans. its a bolt in.
the 1g a/t does not have roll stop mounts. your summit has roll stops mounted on transmission like a 2g.. you would have to fabricate custom roll stops to use 1g trans.
the 2g a/t trans has roll stops but uses a lockup converter. the bell housing is moved over about 1/2 inch so the summit axles would be half inch too long and half inch too short. you would have to make custom axles.
the RVR trans is essentially 1g trans 1g converter mounted in 2g style cases. the RVR trans is getting hard to find here and the asking prices have gone up. . they were plentiful a few years ago and cheap.
Ah that sucks! I was hoping for the 2g auto trans to work. Would I be able to use the 2g auto axles in the Wagon with the 2g auto trans?
I thought I read somewhere on here that someone made the 2g auto trans work but I guess I will go the RVR wrote if this saves me time and more money. Custom axles will be expensive.
I was hoping to use if I got the $600 2g auto trans, t-case, axles, diff, wire harness, torque converter, tcu, starter plate, etc. for the summit. I may still pick this up for the talon haha but I need to start researching where to get the RVR transmission.
