Auto trans question...


TobyB

Recommended Posts

well, actually, bellhousing...

What's the 'thickness' of an auto bellhousing?

As in, if you unbolted it from the engine and transmission,

flopped it engine- face- down on a flat surface, and then measured from

the flat surface up to the transmission- mounting surface?

Thanks!

Hell, no, I shan't explain, for it is

YOU are not WORTHY, my good

NON 2002 owning POSTINI!!!

hee hee...

CD, I do love you, but why not say that you just don't know?

And anyway, 3m stuff is every bit as good as Wurth, and a

darn sight cheaper... and easier to find...

Here's a picture or 2 to gross you out.

(Gordon, you're close, but a Quaife would eat up next season's

entire shrimp budget, if you know what I mean?)

ps, if anyone knows the actual dimension, I'd be grateful! The victim is

far too lengthy to be easily adapted...

Toby,

I don't actually know your answer but I do know its been discussed here before. I think the guys were discussing how Jensen Healys used the same Getrag CR box with a different bellhousing so the post had all the dimensions up there...

I know (or I think) ToddK was involved in the post, possibly try searching his user name and "Jensen"???

I'm at work and have limited FAQ'ing abilities here with internet filtering and all...

What gearbox is the donar?

'79 & '80 Vespas, R75/6 + R90/6 (and a Triumph), '76 IH Scout II

E36 

'71 VIN: 2574356 - Nevada, Sunroof, RUST and a really nice '76

Yup, it's in fact Japanese...

Alp would be able to guess, as he has one (or 6) of 'em...

It's a Nissan from the late '60's. The ratios

(with a 4.44 diff) are pretty darned good for a 22" rear tire

and a motor that doesn't wind past 7500. And when I do,

the later Nissan boxes have the same bellhousing, so 'gear' changes

will become 'gearBOX changes.

AND it'll work with a 1- piece, dry driveshaft. It's so good a fit

you'd think it was made for it. Well, except for the bellhousing...

So I need a bellhousing for it, with a short (145mm) depth.

When you mill the back off a standard box, you kind of run out

of aluminum about 160mm... and I was trying to find out if

it was worth chasing down the auto housing or just setting to

work with the tig.

The auto cars do show up in the cheapo junkyard from time

to time, but (as it alwasy happens) there haven't been any there for a

while. I may have to range farter...

Winston, the Jensen discussion got close to the answer, but never

made it there... good memory, though!

Right on, Gordon-

that's this weekend's project!

Well, maybe next weekend- I need a boring head

to mate the adapter plate to the donor transmission...

You do know, though, that I'll be slower after I do this?

And here's the link to Jerzy's answer, since it won't search as well as this thread:

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
