Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

So got round to fabricating and welding the front sub frame mounting points today (well the off-side one at any rate) I have lost count how many times i have put the front sub frame together to measure something to then have to take it apart to fabricate.

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Love the fabrication, nice work. My G64 box has the gear select through the nose so another challenge.

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Thanks Stephen. Just looked at the speedhunter site and shame no build pictures, I will try and track some down. Which cable system did you go for? Agree about the top wish bone for the front. I have ordered an adjustable A frame one and will then use the strut mounting pointing on the hub to build ...

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Thanks Mo. Let me know how the cable shifter goes as I will have to go down that route myself. Would love to see some pictures of the motor and gearbox in place.

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Hi Mo. Yes pretty much. I am going to try and keep the original dimensions under the cargo floor just to make outriggers and sills etc easy to fit and then forward of the arch i need to fab for the front drive shafts i will keep as standard as possible again for ease of fitting floors etc.

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Started fabricating the front chassis this weekend, so far so good.

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Spent the last 2 evenings getting the engine, gearbox and rear suspension under the shell and lifting it up as far as possible. The limiting factor is the torque tube hitting the i sections under the cargo floor so with 15mm of gap i have a small invasion of the gearbox nose into the cab. Luckily th...

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Offered up the engine and gearbox today. I will have to cut into the cab floor to accommodate the gearbox nose but not as much as i first thought. Don't ever throw out your skateboard, you never know when it will come in handy! https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7822/47343344332_f1cc824fef_k.jpg Engine ...

Re: AWD 964/911 Bus

Started offering up the chassis parts today and hopefully over the weekend will tack weld a few chassis rails in place to hang it off. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7907/47388046351_76293e21ee_k.jpg Front Sub Frame by Duke of Boots1966 , on Flickr https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7804/47388046271_bd6...
