Information pulled together from several threads (thanks guys).
Wiki on transmission: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...rag_282_transmission
These are circa 1989-1994 Berreta/Cavalier Getrag trannys - note location of arm on clutch fork - INSIDE the bellhousing.
Some may have HTOB (Hydraulic Throw Out Bearing - also useable)
If they come from a V6 car, the transmission will bolt directly to the V6 2.8L V6.
Sometimes you may find a Quad-4 Getrag that's too good to pass up (new or low miles)
You can have a transmission shop change the bellhousing half of the Quad-4 Getrag transmisson to a V6 bellhousing.
With a Quad-4 trans you'll need the bellhousing from a V6 Getrag (you probably have a worn out V6 tranny anyway)When you swap an original Fiero bellhousing, you'll only need the Cable Linkage Conversion Kit below.
Here's the scoop on parts needed for newer FWD V6 Getrag transmission as pictured above in our Fiero application.
In some cases you may have to split the case to change the gear for the VSS. (speedometer)
Dickman has the gear $25
