I've been bombarding some of the other vw sites so a few more brains here might give me the answer I'm hunting for: Looking at the pictures of inline gearboxes I've just realised that the bell housing includes the diff. Not to be deterred the most important part of the 5 ganger is the gear box with the 0.51 to 1 fifth gear. so the profile I need to match up is the middle interface. Why I didnt check this 10 years ago when I had the two setups side by side I'll never know Why am I asking? Well over hear in Limeyland the last of the production of Quantums were all 5 cylinder gassers and I'm looking for a 'new' body (aren't we all ) for my 1.6TD and I didnt want to rip everything out (just most things it appears) > > Whilst I know that the 4 cylinder engines don't match up > with the 5 cylinder gasser bell housing; does anyone know if > I go back to the gearbox interface would the 4 cylinder bell > housing mate up there? > What needs to be invented/ written is a book of profiles of > interfaces. these could then be traced or scanned for > matches/near matches for easy DIY Frankenstein's... > Cheers > Mark-The-Miser-UK > > "There's nothing like driving past a bonfire and realising > its your car on fire"
