915 Conversion

Hey,

I just purchase a 914 - 6 with a 2.7L CIS engine (just rebuilt) and a 915 tranny (just rebuilt)

On the first drive the 915 gear box pushed alot of oil out the vent. It seemed to "crunch" going into 3rd gear. But it has a real crappy home brew shift linkage on it. Im going to replace it with the Wevos system.

My question is, when flipping the pinion gear in the diff to use this tranny in the 914, it there some other mod that is need to control oil flow?? Or can you just flip the pinion, set it up and be done with it.

Cheers

Chester

Chester,

The breather tube has to be moved to the opposite side. If it is on the same side as the ring gear, it will pour oil as it is slung off of the ring gear.

Good luck,

The hole in the breather needs to point forward, as the stock 914 one does. That will help keep the gear oil from coming out of it as well.

Overfilling it will produce the same results.

Dave is right. you need to turn the breather hole the way it's pointed on a stock 901. otherwise the oil will just spew out of the breather, now that the tranny is turning the other way ...
