Hi together,

we made the first two conversions with the kit now and it works very fine.
Wanted to inform you that we engineered and milled further different bearing supports for the later 915 gearboxes with aluminium case. For this gearbox the bearing supports from the old 916 kit from the 70s don´t fit. We had to find a way to fix these supports in the gearbox as the later 915 does not have the three casted positions where you can cut threads to fix this support. Will make further pictures at short notice to show you details and supply them here.

So you're saying we didn't have to do all this? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif)

Sorry Chris,

if we had talked about it it would not have been necessary. Did not get an email. Nothing in spam-filter either. Thought that the gearbox to convert was a magnesium-one.

Will add some pictures the next days.

It will be easier with the next alumnium 915.

I sent one email before beginning the alterations and another one as soon as we were finished. I also replied to your most recent email.
No worries. We were up to the task. It was just a bit more than expected. Before starting we were unaware the trans was not a real 916.

Hi Chris and all of you,

here are first pictures of the bearing supports for the aluminium 915. Not completely finnished, but the final milling will be done this weekend. You can see that the base of this support is wider and that it by this sits where the shiftrod originally was supported. I have a part made on the lathe that will be fixxed in this position of the shiftrod with clue (don´t know the right word now). In this part a pin will be installed. On this pin the new bearing support will be placed. One thread M8 will have to be cut in the one position in the gearbox that is existing in the alu-915.

HAHA That would have made it easier. Everything went together real nice and the car shifts really well.

Seems everytime Chris opens up my car he finds a new surprise. He may open the motor someday and find that it's powered by squirrels.

Hi guys,

currency exchange rate has cleared the last weeks. The Euro has lost some good percentages compared to the US$. It´s by this has become cheaper for you to order the 916 kit.
In addition to this I want to give you an extra-bonus on the exchange rate.
For orders/payment until end of May I give another 10% on the price.

Have all parts for the conversion in stock, or can mill at short notice (have some casted parts extra in stock).

Conversion kits for 915 with mechanical speedo drive will take some weeks extra (delivery about mid June), cause I have to do some work on the speedo drive still.

So prices for export to the US are:

916 kit for electronic speedo gearbox - 1.880 Euro (today 2.390 US$)
916 kit for mechanical speedo 915 - 2.110 Euro (today 2.679 US$)

For orders or more info you can contact me by mail to: info@bugat5speed.de

Hi altogether,

to make ordering the parts easier for you in the US I could convince one of the most well known traders for 914 parts in the US to offer my conversion kits. Automobile Atlanta has now listed the two different kits (electronic speedo, mechanical speedo) on their site. Here´s a link to the electronic speedo version: http://www.autoatlanta.org/detail.lasso?Pa..._number=1105765

By this it will be much easier for you to get hold of the parts (no customs, no money transfer to overseas, ...).

Hi together,

here´s a picture of a 915 we made a revision and converted to 916. It´s for a 914/6 with a 3.2 engine.

I see on the AA site that there is a core charge, maybe I missed it but what would be the core part? also, does this work with stock side shifter linkage? Does anyone know if it would work with a six and the jwest shift linkage?

Guy's,

it's been a year now on this thread. Has anyone actually purchased and installed one of these kits yet????

I would like to hear some feedback about the shift quality, and maybe some pictures showing some shift linkage setups.

I have an old Vellios setup in my teener, and am kinda on the fence about coughing up some more coin to change the shifting mechanism for my 915 box one more time.

some one put up a post please.

I only know of two installs. The one in this thread and one in another thread. Neither of them show the shift linkage, but one of them used parts from Patrick Motorsports. Here is a link to the other thread. http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?sho...=109782&hl=

Steve,
thanks for the link. The thread on the link however has no feedback. No real details, and definitely no pictures.

I really want to hear from someone whose installed the kit and run it for 500-1000 miles or so. Some one has got to have done that by now.

Please post. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
