The gearbox E-mail
October 31, 2006

The week before last week I sandblasted, zync coated and spray painted all pedals from the pedal box, the axle where they are connected to needs to be re-galvanised and will go to the galvaniser with the next load of nuts and bolts that we collect from different parts of the car. The whole pedal box is standard Ford Scorpio and the Sienna chassis is suited to bolt it on without mods.



This week we started working on cleaning the gearbox. Removed the bell-housing and counted the Crown an Pinion wheels to find out that the final ratio of the gearbox is 3.89. The type plate on the box said "UN1S04". So now I am almost certain this is a "UN1-04" gearbox coming from a Renault 25V6. Have asked a question on http://www.lamboreplica.co.uk  to ask if this is a suitable box or not. We tried to clean the box but that is harder then we thought it would be, so we decided that the box, if it suits our engine, will be taken to a company that will steam-clean the gearbox. After that it will be coated with special black aluminium paint.

 

Until the next update!
