Trying to narrow and simplify my focus on builds.
Still want to put my Morris Minor PU together and really want an OD top gear.
Abandoning the Geo Metro setup due to the Time/Fab required. 
So the simplest way to do this is to find a B210 Datsun 5-Speed and put it behind a 1098 or 1275.
Lots were made, so should not be that hard to find.
Shipping is not a deal killer.
I may have Spitfire, Spitfire OD, Suzuki Samurai, TR6, or MGB trans for trade goods.

I don't have one but KRAP in Toledo Oh had two 210 with 5 speeds last time I was there

In reply to RichardSIA :

Are B210 transmissions different from other Datsun units? I seem to be able to find units from Datsun 1600 roadsters but not 210s. The only 210 unit local to me is listed at $2500 with a "Rivergate conversion", whatever that is.

"The only 210 unit local to me is listed at $2500 with a "Rivergate conversion", whatever that is."
That is a greedy price for the conversion I want to do. B210 into Spridget/Morris Minor.

Who is KRAP? Phone, email?
These guys, (419) 478-9727?
Not answering the phone today. 

I have been given new information, "The correct gearbox is from a '79 to '82 210 (B310), not a B210".

'River gate' is the company that makes the conversion plate for the BMC A series to Datsun trans. That might be a gold mine there.

Yeah, KRAP is king road auto parts. They aren't open sundays and rarely answer their phone other days. It's an old school kind of junk yard
