tiat twin cam and 911 gearbox
« on: August 22, 2007, 10:33:38 am »
with this transformation its easy to adopt a twin cam on a 911 gearbox and you have a 5 speed and the good direction of turning (right)Just take one part of gearbox ,one part of cluth housing of a 124 our 131 and weld this togheter .Its fits easy in the 850 chassis and have the right gearing
Best is the old +-1965/1977 models and with small cardans .You need to take the cluth plate from the 911 ,215 mm that works fine with the cluth cover from fiat idem size .

looks good Guy

is that a 901 Porsche gearbox ? YES
or the later and bigger 915 gearbox  ? NO TO BIG AND HEAVY

if it is the 901 the gear shifting pattern is

R 2 4               THIS DEPEND ON SHIFTER IHAVE NOW       4   2  R
                                                                                                            5  3  1
1 3 5

Hi Guy

I have driven 911s with the early shift pattern ,

I hate  it for street driving where you need to use first gear often ,

its OK on the highway or race track.....

Thanks Guy, looks straight forward enough. I still have some questions.
Which drive shafts are you using? XI/9 ?PANDA ETC MODIFID
Does the gearbox spline fit striaght into the 1400 twin cam? BIGGER  BEARING
Are you using the 911 clutch with the 124 pressure plate. YES
I am sure I will have more questions as I go through the conversion (I hope you dont mind)I HAVE NO SECRETS LIKE YOU ALREADY SEE IN THIS FORUM

regards  GUY
Chris

I got really hook on the idea of upgrading the gearbox to the porsche transmission and then adding twincam engine. I know a guy who have a 901 porsche gearbox for sale. Futhermore a know another guy who have a 1600cc fiat Ritmo (105TC) for sale, but does this fit (And can you use the clutch housing from this engine)??

How hard is it to make the porsche gearbox fit? I have some basic mechanic skills but I havn't got that much knowlegde about tuning engines.

Maybe this project is just to big for me, but is there another (easier) way of getting some more horsepower out of a fiat 850?

Really hope you can help me.. :)

Guy, Have you ever used a VW beetle gearbox?. If not would it work instead of a porsche one?

You have a limited place in a 850  base car and the VW gearbox is bigger than 901 box .In 600 the place is even smaller but is still possible for the 901 box

I believe that Greg Schmidt (USA) used to sell adaptors for using a VW gearbox in the 850.  I will have to read his book again to see what the limitations are.
