Help identify transmission?




I see 915/XX 734 8186


XX=ground off
7= 6cyl
3= ROW 5spd
4= 1974

8186= SN

So a 915/06 correct? Being a ROW trans is surprising, is that really what the "3" means?

From what I can tell you are correct that your trans is a 915/06, but I find no info that would indicate that the "3" is a RoW unit. The "3" in this case simply means the trans is a 5-speed, with 7:31 ring & pinion, that was fitted to '74 911s, 911Ss, and Carreras. I find no mention of RoW models in my 1974 Tech Spec book.

If I remember correctly, in Tobias Aichele's book "PORSCHE 911, FOREVER YOUNG," the words "Rest of World" (RoW) appeared to describe a model for the first time in 1978.

Thank you Pete, appreciate the info.


I've been using info from this site -

Blue Sky

at the bottom of the page under "Serial Numbers" they mention

3 = 5 speed Europe and RoW

Unfortunately not the transmission I was expecting (included in the purchase of my '78). 108mm 4 bolt two pin CV flanges, 7:31 R&P and mech speedo make it less than ideal for my SC...

Usually, when RoW is mentioned, it means countries "other than" the U.S.A., Canada and Japan. I think that Blue Sky didn't get that memo!

Sorry about your trans fiasco (I hope that your '78 car has a transmission in it!), maybe someone with a '74 car will come along and buy the early trans from you.

In 1974, there were 3 gearboxes, a 4spd, a 5spd, and a Sporto. Every spec, Carrera, S and normal, got the same thing.
