I have a 82 22R with a L45 (4 speed) with a noisy third gear, could I swap a
L52 into this truck ? I have heard that both of these transmissions were used for the 22R in 1982, but is it a direct swap or do I need some type of adapter or something?
Thanks,
Jason

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it will bolt right up to the motor. I think the 5 speed might be longer and therefore you will need to shorten the rear driveshaft if that is the case, but I'm not sure. Just wanted to throw that out there to ya.
Good luck!

Jason, I believe both are forward shift and like marshall said I think the 5 speed is longer as well.

it is a direct swap, but I think they are about 5 or 6 inches longer. I would hold out for a w56 if you can, L52s weren't all that great.

Direct swap.
