Does anybody know how to distinguish the various W series transmissions from the outside, as when buying from a yard? In searching the Toyota forums they all say to get it from the vehicle plate (not helpful). I was looking at one for sale locally on ebay - the ebay header description says W58, but the full description says "TOYOTA W SERIES 5 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION (W55 W56 W58)". If I go look it would be good to know what I am supposed to look for.

BTW, I know this is an old string but I contacted the New Zealand guys and they responded quickly and have complete kits available. They also have a W57 available.

Thanks
