Hi John;
I can get you the information for a 901/911 gear box(s) later this week since I have one of each.

Could you do a sketch so we understand exactly which dimension you are looking for?

On the 911 box that I have in my garage, it was about 8 1/4 inches from face where the bell housing mates to the engine, and the center of the bolt in the middle of the axle flange.

Here are the sketches...

I am considering a special project and need the following measurements (note: accuracy is of utmost importance! If possible, measurements in (mm) preferred due to increased precision):

1.) Distance from the center of the transmission side cover to the end of the bell housing for:

a.) 901 Trans. ('65-'68) 5-speed, aluminum
b.) 915 Trans. ('72- '77) 5-speed, magnesium
c.) 915 Trans. ('78-'83) 5-speed, aluminum(?)
d.) RUF Trans. (early) 5-speed, (has short bell housing - see
911 Performance Handbook, p.202 edition 1 or p.231 edition 2)

e.) 993 Trans. ('96-'98) 6-speed




2.) Distance from where the engine bolts up to the bell housing to the front of the fan housing for:

a.) 911 2.0L ('65-'67) aluminum case
b.) 911 2.0, 2.2, or 2.4L ('68-'73) magnesium case
c.) 911 3.0L ('78-'83) aluminum case
d.) 993 3.6L ('96-'98)




3.) Distance from center of rear wheel to the end of the fan housing for:

a.) 911 ('65-'68) - short wheelbase (2211 mm / 87.1 in.)
b.) 911 ('68-'71) - long wheelbase (2268 mm / 89.3 in.)
c.) 911 ('72-'74) - longer wheelbase (2271 mm / 89.4 in.)
d.) 911SC ('78-'83) - wheelbase (2271 mm / 89.4 in.)
e.) 993 ('96-'98) - wheelbase (2272 mm / 89.4 in.)
f.) 911 with early RUF 5-spd. (please state engine it's paired with)

(Wheelbase clarification needed: i have seen countless conflicting wheelbase specifications for SC's, 964's, and 993's...does anybody have the true authoritative factory-backed specifications?)




Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
