Why would a 1986 Nissan pickup start to sputter and turn off when put into gear?

Try the rotor(under the cap). mine was burn't, talk about shake rattle and roll I've had 3 Nissan pu's greg

also, check your vacume lines. Even one can cause sputter. There is a wire coming out of the bottom of your distribitur. if it gets frayed, it can have the same result. Check your fuel flow. dirty carb or fuel injectors will cause it to sputter and or die when put in gear.

I would have to say yes BUT what part are you changing?? You can change the engine if you want but it is hard.

Your distributer might have a crack in it and moisture is getting in to it and grounding it out,inspect it,wipe clean and check.

It'll fit, but it probably won't work very well, as a 1996 transmission would be wholly electronic, and the 1990 transmission would not.
