Can an auto tranny be used on a 4wd zuk with a 1.3 and zuk tcase with min. mods? If so, which ones?

you might be able to get an auto out of a Swift with a 1.3

Should bolt right up to the motor. You would probably have to move your t-case cause the auto will probably be to long.

Isn't a swift front wheel drive?
I think there is an adapter that you can run a 1.6L zuk tranny with a 1.3L engine. Maybe you can run a sidekick auto tranny?

Edit: Its the lucky 13, on www.rock4xfabrication.com
Looks like its $59

The adaptor plate is to run a 1.6 engine to a 1.3 tranny.

Not sure about the front wheel drive.

The Lucky 13 was built to adapt a 1.3 motor to the track/kick trannysmokin Its not the adapter that you are thinking of.

So, how much modification is there using a lucky 13 adapter, and adding a 1.6 auto tranny. Will the auto tranny work with the stock zuk tcase? Is the auto tranny longer, so drivelines have to be shortened? And most important, does the auto tranny from a 1.6 use a torque converter, and if so, how much mure higher is 1st gear than a zuk stock tranny?

If you want to run a auto with a 1.3 you will need to get a auto from a tracker/sidekick. It needs to be a 2wd transmission so you can run the zuk case. You will need to use the 1.6 aD=dapter to get the 1.3 engine on the 1.6 transmission. MYRON at ZORPRODUCTS has done this exact setup. Give him a pm and ask him for the details. When you get the donor trans make sure you get ALL the parts needed or it can get very expencive.

When you use a 1.6 auto 2wd you make a very short intermediate shaft to go to your T-case. I have seen people use the stock T-case location and drivelines but the newly fabbed intermediate is almost nothing. Just 2 ujoints and a small section of pipe like 2 inches or something. When you use the 1.6 auto you will be using the torque converter and I think it is a multiplyer of 2 but I dont know the stock first gear ratio. I will try to answer any other questions but never doing it my knowledge is limited.

I'm not sure how much lower but you might be able to calculate it!ok a manual kcik has 5:12 gears in the axle and an auto has 4:62's they have the same final drive ratio so then the auto tranny has to be lower! just not awake enough to figure it out at the moment! but maybe this will help somehow!

or is the auto 1 to 1 in drive, and the manual with 5th gear being an over drive? if they have the same final drive ratio and an auto has three or four gears and the manual has 5 gears would then the manual have a lower ratio per gear? Kinda new to these little Suzuki's, now if it was a Chevy or a Harley, and the Chevy was rear wheel drive and V8 that I know,
