F=FLOOR SHIFT, R=REMOTE SHIFT,
S=OD,W=WARNER SYCRO TYPE[SOME HAD SERVO TYPE?]
71 = MM BETWEEN SHAFTS,ABC = REAR HOUSING TYPE.
OUTPUT SHAFT =30.5MM 27 SPLINE. 81 TYPE IS 31.5 MM

I HAVE NOT HEARD OF THE C=CLOSE RATIO,BUT OLD 810 SSS AND Z-CARS HAD THAT NON-OD 5SPEED BOX AND IT HAD A STRANGE ID.

R31 EXCEPT RB20ET,RB20DT,RB30 HAD VERY DIFFERENT BOXES UNTIL AROUND 1986/06 IN JAPAN AROUND 87 IN AU THEY
STANDARDISED EXCEPT FOR SYCRO ON 4 CYL. THE AUSTRALIAN ONLY CA20 HAD A 910 SER3 TYPE BOX WITH

Explaination of boxes
If the input gearset has a lower reduction, (closer to unity) then all the gears apart from the 1:1 direct coupled fourth will be taller. This means that 1st, 2nd & 3rd close up but fifth gets wider. This is probably the cheapest way to close up a gear set but it still has its problems. With a1:1 fifth this makes a good way of changing ratio spread reasonably easily.All 71B option 1:1 fifth boxes come with 22 drives 31 input sets so by changing to a 21 -32 set you can lower too tall ratios to give a ratio setin between option 1 and 2 etc. Eg option 2 with 22 31 gives 2.348,1.601,1.296, 1.138,1. By changing the input to 21 drives 32 this gives2.539,1.731,1.402, 1.231,1 (just like a taller option 1)

These are the common gearbox input ratios.
22:31
(The most common:- used in K 5 speed, 240Z 260Z, R30 & R31 Skyline, SR20,FJ20, CA20.) these are all FS5C71B boxes. From my understanding the codes mean F(rear wheel drive) S(overdrive) 5(five speeds) C(closer ratios)71(Main housing type) B(extension shaft & housing type). These boxes have typically 3.321, 2.077,1.308, 1, & 0.864 ratios. This is the most common box used in Nissan vehicles.

21:32
(K 4 speed and other under powered, commercial or heavier vehicles ( 720 orNavara utes, 280C, 280Z, R31-CA Pintara etc) For smaller engined or heavier bodied vehicles the above ratios were changed to 3.592, 2.057,1.361, 1, 0.852 by using the 21:32 input set. These ratios allow you to getof the line quicker with a heavy body that is under powered. This box is then known as a FS5W71B box. The W being for wider ratios. Most turbo boxes are the FS5C71B boxes with the naturally aspirated versions having the FS5W71B boxes. If you go to an importer they will often tell you a box is from a turbo or NA vehicle and often get it wrong. The easy way is to put the box in first and turn the input shaft counting the turns to produce one revolution of the output shaft. (3.3 turbo, 3.6 N/A).The main difference with early 5C turbo boxes is the use of heavier section countershaft (38mm diam) and gears. This means they change slower but can handle heaps more grunt. The earlier boxes (240K, 260Z etc) up to about 85 usually had a 29mm diameter countershaft. All boxes from 87 on seem to have the larger countershaft. 85 - 87 boxes can be a bit of a mixture of countershaft types.The best part of the FS5 (C or W ) 71B boxes is that once you have set up agood set of ratios, you can change the box from vehicle to vehicle by changing the bell housing. Eg an L series box to an RB 30, SR20, FJ20, CA(16 - 18 - 20), Z (18-20-22-24) by changing the bell housing.

(early Z and fairlady boxes these are not interchangeable with the 71Bfamily boxes)

Nissan Vanette and other commercials (if fitted into 5C gear set thisgives, 4.190, 2.4, 1.650, 1, 0.865 ( a good cliff climbing gearset?)
