The ex-Dormy trans. :???:

Tried to use the differential from it on the T3 one but it won't go. I'd guess that's where the correct "shims" come into play. :sad:

I need to do that.

I think I have too much play on my left axle and have decided that if I pull that trans again it will go in IRS.

I just need to do the THINGIE change Bill described - wanna keep the trans, Rancho pro street with low milage on it.

Yes, at least according to the Professor. :???:

I was just trying to get my own swing/RGB trans in the mean time. :sad:

73 and newer beetle with single side cover IRS has 3.88-1 ring & pinion,but has .93 4th. so you may want a beetle .89 4th or use a .82 bus 4th if you have a stroker engine. :lol:

even possible to use chevy universals in it. when i raced my 58 vette we always changed the universals to non Zerk type to eliminate a potential weak spot. coming off the line at 9500 rpms tends to find weak spots real fast. :sad:

I'm betting they are air lines for a future bag setup which ain't there yet. :???:

The pix were recently posted without much info so I don't know what the story is on that project. However, sure looks like a possible idea to consider since the IRS'ing of a split bus is supposed to do better with the more costly 930 CV joints because of the naturally radical angle they'd sit. :cool:

Alright, biting the bullet here. I'm going in! :razz:

Dug out all I have for the swap. The stuff is late phatchick so there's some difference between it and the stuff used in the UK swap I posted pictures of. Namely the torsion plates as far as the diameter of the splines is concerned. I do have an extra set of split bus plates that can be cut'N'drilled to fit the hubs. I'm sure the plates' steel is pretty hard so, what are suggestions on how to do the cut'N'drilling?!? :???:

Just talked to C John and he said we can mill it in a couple of hours. Slow process and prolly will eat up cutters but "can do"! :razz:

I'll prolly pay for the cutters but that may be the hardest part on this project. There's a spacer I need to machine as per the UK's article and I can do that fairly easily. :cool:

Ooops! Forgot that this thread doesn't have the article posted. :oops:

Here it is:

Picture 14 shows the axle with a T2 CV joint on one end and a T1 on the other. It fits the axle splines but is narrower so a spacer needs to be in place to make it fit properly snug. :cool:

The plates "cut" is postoned pending further measurements. Measure twice cut once and such. The axles are done and ready to install. Debate is still going on on whether to shorten the trailing arms as per the article, or cut into and modify the frame horns. :???:
