Certainly will be careful to seal off behind the shaft. I may try to setup a rig to respline it without removing it from the case, but that might not be possible.

The shaft sticks out and can't mate with an engine directly as-is.
The splined part must be cut off, leaving the smaller diameter shaft to be resplined, and turns out a VR6 flywheel almost fits the Audi V8 and the VR6 clutch has the smaller splines that will work with the cut shaft.

A reasonable person would just use an automatic transaxle that just bolts up.

Are you shoehorning an Audi V8 into a 944? Is it for a street only car? If for a track car you could be better off looking at a different gearbox that will have more options available. Some of the Audi O1E 6 speed gearboxes have straight cut gears and even a poor man's sequential setup available.

From the looks of it Patrick i would say its possibly a kit car of some sort and he is mounting the 944 box directly to the back of the Audi V8. Very common to use these boxes for kits such as the GT40 reps.

I don't really want to pollute this fine thread with talk of my project, but yes originally was to shoehorn the audi v8 into a mid-engine 944. However, I have since decided to make it street legal, which in california pretty much means a pre-1976 car, and have choosen a 67 Corvair body for the drivetrain.

I have the images and complete page downloaded. With permission from OP I could create a PDF or something for download.

I'm 100% sure the Buchanans wouldn't mind. You can check but Sean is overseas at the moment.

Okey, let's hope so

Here's a link to the PDF, it's in my Dropbox for the moment.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/3d2qmv1i0j...hread.pdf?dl=0

Is there any good way to host it on the forum instead?
