    My spare transmission is getting close. It has ALL new bearings and syncros. 3 new aluminum plates and a Wavetrac. B, GA, O, U, ZA and 7:31 R&P. The box has the PeterBuilt (Peter Graham, well known on the 912BBS.org) built axles. Bigger ball bearings and overall just stouter stuff for the SWB cars. I just got off the phone with Clint Smith of Rebel S Racing and my coil overs and RSR spring plates are on the way.
    By the way that Loctite product took all the crud off the case in a Jiffy.
    Oh and my machinist is at work making my SWB/LWB stub axles. I'm helping him design some fixtures so he can reproduce these and balance them. I'll take my old pair off my current transmission and have them balanced.
    All this stuff goes on the car after the green car is done.
    The only other thing I might do is add Elephants GT3 front suspension. It looks very interesting.

    My 935 type SWB spring plates came today. Everything yellow in this picture is getting replated as I have a batch of other parts that needed plating. The current plating is a bit thin. Coil overs are on the way.
    Currently Rebel may be the sole source for the SWB version?

    I did some license panel and fog light work on Doug's 911E today. I took the muffler off so I could get at the license panel on the engine side. First I added a heat shield and drilled holes for a fog light. Then I mounted the fog light. Then I realized to take the panel off you would have to cut the positive plug (in the housing) and the negative connection (on the mounting bolt) as they are too big to fit through the outlet hole. So I followed the harness back to the drivers side turn signal housing and made a cut where I could install male/female connections. I'll finish it tomorrow. Now you unplug the leads at the back of the fender well and pull the panel off without touching the fog light connections at the fog light. Now the lead wires are long enough to run them to the fender area before final fitting the license panel.

    As I'm using the middle threaded hole on the spring plate I need to fill the upper and lower threaded holes. That and silicone around the piece that fills the torsion bar tube keep the tube dry. So I bought some allen wrench plugs, and used a little blue thread locker in the middle of the threads on the fixture. Next I used black silicone on the top threads then inserted them. Now I flipped the spring plate over and filled the holes with grease. And lastly I covered the holes with gorilla tape. Overkill? Probably.
    I also replated all the yellow parts.

    Christmas in April.
    A new Albins profile ground 901 B first gear from Retro Sport. I'm off to the transmission builder so the transmission can get finished.

    After 8 hours working on the 911E I spent a little time on this conversion project today.
    This should be a cleaner aluminum case transmission to mag case transmission conversion on my 67 than what I did before. I'm going the longer axle route. I had a diff carrier lathed on the short side to flat. Then I drilled 6 holes in a piece of aluminum to the SWB and 914 bolt pattern. I taped four of the holes and left the holes where the roll pins used to be untapped. Once I get the 914 stub axles back from the machinist (he is cleaning up the welds where the roll pins used to be) I can insert the stub axles into the carrier with the aluminum guide plate and drill the holes and tap them.
    I will remeasure for axle length. If all goes well the axle and stub axle should be bolt in.

    I think the carrier will end up as a lamp base.

    More on this can be found here. The stub axle came out perfect.

    I'm picking up my spare transmission today. B, GA, O, U, ZA, 7:31. New Wavetrac, ALL new bearings, new Albin's B gear, 7:31 R&P, altered 914 stub axles, all synchro's, several dogteeth, intermediate plate, internal bearing carrier. side plate, the transmission purchase, axles, throw out bearing, is right at 10K. I didn't realize I had spent that much, but everything is the best stuff you can buy for the 901/911 transmission. Peter Graham is building a pair of one inch longer axles for my car to go with the 914 stub axles. My existing transmission was built to the same spec other than the side plate a C 1st, V 4th, and ZD 5th. I should be all transmissioned up for as long as I own this car.
    Here are a couple pictures of the transmission and a special Porsche transmission tool he uses. My transmission builder said he wouldn't rebuild a transmission without it. His transmissions come out perfect. This is the 3rd one he has done for me.

    I have a pair of perfect unused stock length axles Peter Graham built for sale as I'm going with the 914 stub axles that require them to be one inch longer on this mag case transmission , 914 stub axle build. I paid $1050.00 and will sell for the same price. SOLD
