Default Tool requirements/availability

Amazing write up - thanks!!

Couple of questions - the preload tool looks to be VERY specific to this application. I would like to try a rebuild but not sure where to find the tools that are necessary. Does anybody have any ideas on this?

Also, who sells shims?

In looking at different vendors it looks like around $850 for bearings, synchros, seals and gaskets for a complete rebuild.

Lastly, does anybody make a spool for these transmissions? Me and some buddies race and options are $1800 LSD unit or weld the spider gears. Anybody make a spool to keep this clean and cheap?

Thanks,

Ken

none of the ones I have to rebuild are ever that clean! Good thread, I've done 5 or of them now, not the worst ones to do but still a bit tricky.

Shims can be bought directly from Porsche. You could also ask some of the vendors like paragon or pelican about them too.

have not seen any spools for a 944 transmission.

The transmission got a wash before we took it apart. i always try and clean them first. that way it keeps the floor/workbench and tools clean

Thanks so much for this write up! A friend of mine told me about this thread and i'm lucky that Thingo knew the name of the topic, because rebuild or revision is not said in this topic..
I'll be using all of this in the near future to rebuild my S2 gearbox and probably add a LSD in it!

This is an excellent tutorial with clear instructions a great pictures.

Before I undertake such a repair, can somebody help me with something? When he says remove the bolts, is it righty-tighty / lefty-loosey or is it righty-a-way to the check book and have somebody else do this for you before you loosey your mind because this looks way out of my league.

Makes my oil changing skills look like a kindergarten finger painting versus Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.

All bolts are anti clockwise to loosen and clockwise to tighten. its not terribly difficult but it could be time consuming if its your first go at it
