Gearboxes that fit in a 164?

Post by 1989turbo » Sun Jan 16, 2011 1:18 pm

Hi!

I'm wondering if a 4wd lancia delta gearbox will fit in a 164?

How hard is it to mount a rear diff and hubs in the 1gen 164? haha i know it going to be some work ;)

But that would not be as much fun;)

From the few photos i have seen, it seems like it should be pretty strait forward to add a rear diff from a Delta ( maybe the same diff as in the Q4? ) the Delta had also the C.510 gearbox, meaning that it may have the same fastenings as the 4wd box, then it should be just plug and play. one of the biggest problems maybe that i have to fabricate an axle from the gearbox to the rear diff.

What do you guys think?

The only way to know is to compare it one on one with the Q4's diff.

But then again: everything is possible!

If you can get the gearbox connected with the engine, the rest is simple...
"Just" mount the diff and the driveaxles and your done.
Off cource the width of the wheels need to be adjusted, but those are details...

You also need to create another route of your exhaust pipes, sinds the driveshaft is in the way...


Good luck!

Ive got a 4c turbo, it got a Lancia engine, mounting the engine to the gearbox is as simple as it can be, the Delta has the same engine ;)

I think the width of the wheels are the same on the 164 and the delta, the delta is like 6cm less wide than the 164, and the delta have the wheels more outside the car. (sorry for my poor way of describing stuff in English :p )

Bay the way, i need to build a new engine, just found out that the engine block has a 10cm hole in it, thats way the engine started burning...
