Welcome 'supercool'!
Whats your name and pls show some pics of your 1303/project!

Maybe next year when the cage is in, I can attach my picture camera to the cage and shoot a 1/4 mile run. That way you can see what it shifts like when your in a hurry

Here it is The day I bought it.

It doesn't look much different today, just much cleaner.
has around 30k miles and the only rust I've found so far is from long term storage with the battery still in the car. It appears to have rusted out and dropped completely through the battery tray.
The original 1600 was swapped with a 1964 motor, so I need to change that.

Great thread Wally.

I wanted to ask how did you deal with the front mount ? Did you use your original 915 (widened) front mount or did you adapt the G50 front mount ?

Do you have a part # on the Saab hydraulic TO bearing ? One last question

You mentioned the 964 100mm front output flanges from the 964 gearbox ... are the 915 100mm output flanges swapable or not (thinking not but just checking)

Thanks.

Sandeep

Used the widenend 915 one. Just two holes redrilling, the other two holes were already in the right position. Plus it mounted on the exact same spot on the car also, so didn't need to relocate the car mounts either. How cool is that!

No, 915 are different, otherwise I would have used those of course

Thanks for the answers Wally.

I just closed a deal on a G50/01 .... now to get that sucker to fit properly and remove the 915. Looks like I'll have to fab up another 915 front mount though

I'm sure I'll have some more questions for you once I get the gearbox dismantled for machining

Looking like the beetle will be on the road in 2012 now Might as well paint the beetle white, put a duck tail on it and call it MythbustED, while I'm at it

Haha! Good one Sandeep

Good call on the G50-01. Its very sweet, you won't regret it I'am sure!
Personally I am dubious of the 100mm CV's when you get over 450 hp or so and drag race now and then, but so far, so good and knock on wood.

Hi Wally,

I have a question about the LUK annular TOB. The bearing has an internal spring that keeps the bearing at maximum extension. I am not sure if this changes when hooked up to hydraulic lines (my next step after machining the bellhousing shorter) but would this mean that the bearing would always be engaged to the pressure plate fingers ?

I am not sure if this spring needs to be removed as I don't have any documentation on its operation / servicing. Can you please comment ?

Thanks

Sandeep

I left the spring in and it works fine. Spring still works the same when hydr.lines are on. There's just no real pressure on the bearing from the spring. I think thios was done intentionally by Luk. Just leave things stock if can be is my feeling

Maybe i missed it, but which throw-out did you use?
Do you have the part number?

You are still using the SACO master, right?

How did the travel/pressure ratio work out using that throwout?

(Send me a bill for the consulting..)

No part number, but its a VW Passat unit from Luk. Think its from a 3B/3BG model. Sandeep uses the same one I noticed.

Yep, amazingly its still leak free and works extremely well with all the porsche trannies I used.

Apperently, it just works. I don't know by what yardstick you want me to describe/measure this?
I think I just got lucky with ratios and travel lengths and such or maybe its just not as critical as one would think

After digging around a bit, i came up with LUK part# W0133-1841866
It also fits Golfs and Eos of a similar era.

Once it comes in, i will be copying your (brilliant) idea.
I hope it works out on my 923...

By the way,
How do you bleed that sucker, anyway?
You don't have to take the motor out to bleed the clutch, do you?

I would not be too sure about that as the 915 bellhousing has less room then a G50.
I looked back then and no porsche tuner I could find including wevo iirc supplied a kit for this...

External bleeding with a T-piece where a bleed nipple is screwed in the 3rd hole

Wally - do you have the workshop manual for the G50? Just picked up a G50/01, and need to disassemble it, to shorten the bell housing.

Thanks!
