Oops I did it again, to my wallet

Recommended Posts

Haha yeah you are quite right, our country is littered with those things! 😁 Having grown up with them though I'm completely used to them, never notice them really.. Only when I'm in countries that don't have them everywhere! 😂

Thanks Mo, I'm doing my best to show the pride that I'm sure at least one person has put into this car during the gloomey days og BL

We have over 200 offshore turbines scattered across the horizon here in North Wales 👍 It’ll be good to get back over to DK at some point 😉

Soo.. Everything was going fine and I was enjoying cruising the SD1 whilst sorting out some odds and ends 👍 well that was till today where, presumeably the "forward clutch" let go in the gearbox with a "ping" in a roundabout ☹️ Guess I'm taking the gearbox out then!

You did AA cover with them when you bought them new in Holland.......

At least those gearboxes are not too big & heavy.

Yes in manual form they are but sadly this is an auto, a BW 65 to be exact

That's interesting.  I'm sure mine was a GM box.  Wish I could remember the exact model but it was a while ago.

Yes I would love a manual, however with All the bits I'll need to convert the only real way would be to find a donor car and swap Everything over. And this will be no cheap or easy task. And I wouldnt know the condition of the donor box anyway 😟

But we have this bloke who specializes in auto boxes and especially for dragracing purposes. I'm going to ask him if there's anything that cam be done to beef it up whilst he repairs it

Hmm......

Perhaps these quys can make for a "L" position in the selector for more fun at the roundabouts, wet corners 😁

Haha yeah would be awesome! Anyways my great fear is that it turns the box cant really be made stronger and that it is a weakness (the internet kinda tells med it is) because then I'm not sure I wan't to fit the 4,6 😟 wouldnt really enjoy it with a gearbox made og glass 😮

Any chance you can pop in a 4HP22 instead?

Why would you want a ghastly manual anyway ? ZF 4HP 22/24 hybrid using hydraulics and not electronic. Wouldn't bother with the BW65 or the GM180 as they are only 3 speed and no overdrive top.

All the things needed to convert to manual would cost way more in any case

Would definitely be an upgrade but would actually rather have the bomb proof TorqueFlite 727 but in both cases modifying the car to suit would tale more time than I want to spend. And with the torquetube design space is Limited

My girlfriend was lovely enough to give me helping hand removing the gearbox today so we can drop it off at the specialist soon. Usually I would take the time to take it apart myself and learn how it all Works, however being a motorcycle mechanic this time of year equals hectic and long workdays:

Hi Søren, 

If this doesn't turn out well, and you want to Try if a hp22 Will fit, I have One on a pallet from a 3,9 just down the road from you. I dont Know if it works, but atleast the case does for a mockup 🙂
