Hi y'all. I'm new to the site and basically new to Mitsubishi's. I have have come across a 4G32/4 speed to put in a project that I'm working on. As I have questions I'll be sure to post them.

What am I working on you ask, I'm building (from scratch) a roadster pickup based on a 1928 chevy truck. Just to be different I wanted to run a 4 banger and a buddy had this 4G32/4speed out of a late 70s Dodge Colt.

Frazerman,

From your email I take it that you need at least the front yoke from a driveshaft fitting the KM110 4-speed manual transmission.
Do you know the model year of the engine and transmission?
There was a change in the diameter of the dust shield on the KM110 and KM119 (5-speed) transmission output after 1976.
OEM driveshafts with a front yoke fitting your transmission came in three different lengths based on the wheelbase of the car,
all within about 7" of each other, but for your application I doubt that this matters.
Any of the three lengths should be fairly easy to find commercially;
car-part.com shows that Gerry's Foreign in Kittitas WA has the longest version for $85.
I've bought from them before and consider them to be reputable and they keep their inventory listings accurate.
If commercial options don't pan out, I'd be glad to remove the front yoke from one of my three 95.3" wheelbase driveshafts
since I won't ever use them.
I'm less inclined to send an entire driveshaft if you only need part of it due to the challenges of shipping.
I'd certainly be willing to cut one if you know approximately where the cut would need to be.
I assume you'll need help from a driveshaft professional at some point so it might be prudent to consult them beforehand.

Sounds like an interesting swap.

Just forward of the exhaust manifold, just rearward of the water pump.
It's probably caked with oil and needs to be scraped and cleaned.

The service manuals claim there are serial numbers on the transmissions but I've never found one.

Good to hear you're in the neighborhood. It's pretty lonely being a Mitsu-Mopar fanatic in the Midwest.
I'll send you an email tonight or tomorrow.

Is the illustration helpful in finding the engine block identification?

Before we get too much further, I want to be sure of which version of transmission you have.
These two pictures show the small and large dust shields.
