Post up the code as seen in this thread's picture.......
That 113xxxxxx is just a VW part number, probably for the case.

got two trans out of Aussie cars...

1.
case no; 5 113 301 103
stamping; 579303

2.
case no; 35 113 301 103 B
stamping; 8122358

BTW, both casing are corroded, the first very badly. I'm just trying to figure out if there is anything useful in there that I can keep. trying to put together a back axle for a 60' SC bus that's being converted to straight axle.

Hi
Ok so far every trany I have stripped with only numbers with out digits
Have had 4.375R&P and 1.32 3de and .89 4th gear and almost 90% of the time it has the thinner syncro cone 1st gear that no syncros is available for
Basically the only spares I strip out of this tranny is the 3de and 4th coarse gears

The steel cage idler gear bearings are much better than the plastic cage bearings in late gearboxes. You should save all those.
Also, the steel 4mm 1-2 shift fork should be saved.

Question about a trans I just picked up.

I picked up an IRS trans that I was told had a 4.375 R&P. The code on the side of the trans does indicate via the list of trans codes I've seen allover the internet as a 4.375, BUT? that list also indicates that it would be bolted to a 1200 from chassis No 0 981 810. I'm sure it's IRS due to the fact that it has the input shaft "collar".


So what gives here??? is the motor&chassis number wrong. Or the gearing??? Only thing I am sure of is that it is IRS.

The collar doesn't make it IRS. It just means the trans is 71 and later.

What is the trans code?

Whoops forgot that it's AA, and does have the IRS output shafts/flanges (although yes I am aware they can be swapped to swing and vise versa given its not SCC)

I bet it started life as a swing axle gearbox and was later converted to IRS.

'71 or later swing... I know in other countries this is very possible.


Oh well, as long as it does have the 4.375, and isn't junk it should work in the Thing.

AV and AW do not seem to be covered in those lists.

both I .belive. are 181 diffs, the AW has a lsd and the AV does not?
give a man a watch and he'll allways know what time it is. give him two and he can never be sure again.

Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.

Correct.
The lists don't have AX, and AY either.

I can't remember, last time I saw one of those was 4 years ago and I didn't write the config down. At least one of them was a swing axle with a 4.37 R&P.

Rjes has a very complete list on the website for bus boxes.

http://rjes.com/html/gearbox_types.html

Most green, lowest RPM
Most red, highest RPM

Lucky me, I pick up an AAP box soon. :)

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR INPUT SHAFT IS MEANT FOR A T4 (1700/1800/2000 bus type motor) or a Type 1, (1600 etc bug/early bus motor)

The input shaft, or rear drive shaft, is longer on the T4 style motors as the needle bearing is in the crankshaft instead of the gland nut, so it needs to reach further. since it is easy and common to swap parts around, when you buy a trans its hard to be sure what it is really for. you can simply cut the end of a T4 style input shaft to make it work on a bug. The quick and easy way to tell what it is set up for is to measure the distance from the edge of the bell housing to the end of the shaft. Lay a straight edge across the bellhousing and measure from teh back of the straight edge to the end of the shaft. if it is setup for a T1 this length should be no more than 16mm or 5/8 an inch, T4 it should be 27 or 1 1/16 max

T1: 5/8 inch MAX
T4: 1 1/16 inch MAX

since there are no FAQs in this forum i figured I would just post this info here for quick reference.
