HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 5:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Emergency Question...

Post  Dawgz83948 on Sun Jan 10, 2010 8:14 pm

I am looking at buying an AOR transaxle. This person bought it from a junk yard used it for a year and parted his car out. He left it out in his driveway for 2 YEARS covered by a tarp, what are the odds that this tranny is still good?

What part of the country? Weather conditions?
Was anything done to protect it from the elements besides the tarp? Have you seen it?
I guess I'd be pretty wary. I'd definitely want to see it before I committed to it.

If it is still sealed with lube in it and the vent cap is on your odds are better.
Since it is a junk yard item and it has been siting out for a few years; have him pull the side cover and 5th gear cover so you can see inside....

It's a mild area, not much weather there. I don't want to drive 5 hours to see it. Thanks for the reply.

It was bought at a junk yard and used for 1 year, then "stored" for 2.

Its the bronze synchros that when above the oil level, after years of sitting, begin to oxidize. Usually sitting on a shelf in storage the synchros are fine but with humidity and such, they sometimes "stick" to the conical section of a gear and when you break them free, they dont have the same "bite" as new. But, Ive only seen that on an austin healey and maybe modern synchros are a blend of bronze and something else?

Id say if its as is and no returns possible, 800-900 very fair but no more than 1100. Ive seen these turbo-S boxes for years at 1500-2500 but were taken care of...and I mean factory lube and maintenance performed.

I found a AOR trans that has 146k and says it seems to shift smoothly through gears. It looks clean in the picture. The guy wants 1499.00 for it. I did not know if this was a good price for it or not. I have been able to locate a regular turbo w/lsd and cooler for 900.00. I though maybe it was high for the AOR for 1499.00

I dont know how much they should go for, I notice LSD brings up the price a few hundred and the AOR version bring in more. SO I am in the same boat as this guy.

Yeah, ive been looking at these transmissions prices for YEARS now and for a turbo box, 500-700 is fine and the norm. For a turbo LSD box, 800-1K is often seen. And for an LSD Turbo S box, ive seen 1500-2500 but mostly in the 2000 range.

Thing is though, these tranny's are gaining more and more miles/wear-and-tear as the years go on so the price being offered should reflect this fact. Has it been rebuilt, had the lash/pre-load maintained to factory specs, used the correct lube (some lubes literally EAT bronze synchros), been stored correctly meaning on its belly and NOT on its bellhousing so that the input shaft isnt being rested on?

If youre thinking of offering a price for a used transmission, these questions should be asked especially if the seller is asking over a grand! If nothing else, these questions may humble the sellers asking price. Most of the time, they think the title of the transmission is good enough to bring a buyer.

If you buy that transmission I would suggest draining the lube, putting some diesel fuel in it and spin it using an electric drill on the input shaft gently engage each gear during the cleaning process. Do this for a few minutes then drain the diesel fuel out and put some high quality gear lube (Swepco,Red Line, etc) in it and spin it some more prior to installing it in the car.
On a used transmission you never really know what you get until you run it or take it apart and 016 951 gear boxes are not simple to take apart and reassemble if you don't have some experience with them.
Good luck!

I'm going to go buy this tranny saturday, if it's good I'll have a 9U code tranny for sale. If it's not good well I'm not gonna buy it. He's holding it for me and the only collateral I needed is to promise him I'll drive my 944 there. Very Happy

Im going to spin it by hand there and see how it feels. If it feels good then I'll buy it and install it in my car. (45 minute job)

You should stop by the pharmacy and pick up a tube of zinc oxide (what people put on their nose at the beach -desitin) take off the right side cover and check for any metal laying around, check the teeth, and then use the desitin to check the tooth footprint of the pinion on the ring gear.

Dont have to do that but if the price is up there...I would. Very Happy

The 951 and 951S aren't getting any more plentiful, so if they follow anything like the 930 and G50/50 the price will only go up. These are the most sought after boxes for racing so I don't expect that they will get much cheaper....unless you get lucky.

Please, please, please......check the fluid for metal and pull the side cover; check the R+P teeth are not pitted and also check for end play in the pinion shaft using a pry tool.

My original 951 trans spins and sounds great, when turned by hand or drill, but the first gear teeth are whiny little bastards under power.....


Good luck and let us know what you find.
