Our new reinforced 915 differential cases are nearly ready for sale. We are currently doing the final milling procedures on a 5-axis machine to the casted gearbox cases. The cases are made from casted alumnium and are heat treated. Very solid material, which has been used on many other very stabile products yet. They were engineered much stronger than the original cases ever were. Differential bearings of 930 gearbox can be mounted. Differences on shape only on 2nd sight.
First finnished parts in the next two-three weeks.
First internal project is building a 915 gearbox with this case for a G-model with 964 engine.

More info at short notice on:

Still not able to upload pictures. Reduced size to only about 700 kB.

Does anyone know how to solve the problem?

Did mill two sides of the gearbox on my own CNC milling centre to make sure that it fits well. Today gave the parts away for 5-axis milling of the other sides. My mill is quite small and it is only a 3 axis machine with a 4th axis to be added.
Think the first two samples will be finnished next week.
We cut the threads for the 916 bracket into the surface wher ethe bearings sit, so it also can easily be used for strong 916 conversions.
Thank you for your positive comments.
As soon as I have them back from milling I will make further pictures and post them here.

If I read the website correctly, this piece is ~ $3,500 in addition to the 915 trans. Cool but out of my budget.

Hi,
export Price in $ about 2.600 $. The sales Price in Germany is inclusive german VAT, which can be subtracted for Export to the US.

Lots of old 915 trannies have very bad cases. Especially the Magnesium cases are on one side very bad in surface, but on the other side they are mostly completely worn out. If you take such a gearbox and put torque on them you will not have fun for a long time.

We are building some gearboxes for cars with very powerful engines which are partly being used for races and we know, that the old cases do not stand this.

Even the later aluminium cases have their Problems (worn out bearing places) and could be more stabile. Ring and pinion are not held in Position if high torque is applicated and that destroys the parts.

That was the starting idea for our case...

What is the status on these parts ?
