1988 911: do I have a G50 or 915 transmission

From the PP technical section;

The 901 transmission requires a 17mm hex key to remove the M25x1.5 plug. On the 915 transmission, used on 911s from 1972 through 1986, the plug is the same, but located on the bottom of the transmission instead of the side. With the G50 transmission, used on 911s from 1987 on, the locations of the plugs were similar to those on the 915, but the plug type changed from requiring a large hex key to requiring only a 19mm socket.

When I changed my gear oil today I had hex head plugs and drain plug was onthe bottom. Does this mean I have a 915 instead of a G50? Would a previous owner have swapped transmissions (can the be swapped)?

If it's an 88 then you got a G50. More than likely someone changed the plugs during the life of the car. I have an 86 with a 915 Transmission and I've got the 19mm plugs. Maybe I took yours and swapped them with mine. The 19mm plug is easier to work with.

Must be a G50. What is your shift pattern? If Reverse is on your LEFT FORWARD beside 1st gear its G50 if its RIGHTMOST BACKWARD beside 4th gear its a 915.

If it has a hydraulic clutch it is the G50. The size/style of drain plugs is not an accurate indicator.

Nothing here at Pelican, as far as I can find anyway.

I can't find them anywhere, it's an SC shift knob with a G50 pattern

Cheers,
Paul

Paul, a buddy of mine has sent Porsche part numbers here to pelican when he needs the odd part or two, and believe it or not, these folks somehow find the part and get it too him. Pelican does a great job when it comes to oddball parts. And your plug is definitely not oddball, so I am sure they will help.

Paul,

Richwood makes nice aftermarket G50 shift knob. All aluminum in a Titanium color. I just ordered one from the UK last week.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks. I can get the SC knob but not with the G50 shift pattern (Carrera 3.2's & 964's). I have ordered an SC knob but I will maybe have to find a G50 pattern button, if I can't find a knob with the correct pattern.

Or:

Thanks for that. I can't seem to find them through Google or Yahoo could you possibly send me a link please?

Cheers,
Paul
