WEVO Final Drive Modification 915
WEVO-developed Final Drive repairs and improved engineering to Porsche gearbox casing for proper set up of the differential on a 915 911 transmission. Housing should be delivered in sterile condition. We can clean the Final Drive Housing for you at a rate of €75 per hour, ex VAT.
The Final Drive housing containing the differential is prone to having the bores for the two main roller bearings worn into an ellipse.This elliptical shape can no longer maintain the bearing interference fit required for accurate crown wheel and pinion set-up and long bearing life, nor can it maintain the accurate shaft spacing required for minimal gear friction and maximum power transfer.
The WEVO solution is to machine a pocket into the pinion bulkhead and shrink fit a stainless steel alloy bridle insert into the case. The bridle is designed to harness the two bearings together – similar to the way the late model G50-50 911 Turbo transmission is manufactured.
The exact spacing of the Input shaft and Pinion shaft can be maintained under much more stressful service conditions. The Bridle is also designed to install the superior input shaft roller bearing (930 302 391 00) from the 930 transmission that was also featured on the last series of 915 transmissions. This bearing has a smaller outside diameter than the original 915 input shaft roller bearing and can only be installed after the bearing bore diameter is reduced by the WEVO bridle insert.
After the Bridle is installed by a shrink fit and two retaining screws, the main case is final machined, blueprinting the interference fit for the input shaft and pinion shaft roller bearings and the precise shaft spacing. The pinion bulkhead is faced to ensure the case is square, flat and perpendicular to your crankshaft. WEVO then installs 10 carbon steel thread inserts for the positions of the Bearing Retainer, allowing the use of 12.9 grade M8 x 20 cap screws to firmly anchor this important part of the transmission bearing package.
WEVO always cross-drills and lock wires these 10 bolts when building a 915 transmission and recommend this practice. The Final Drive modification suits all 915 transmissions 1972 through 1986 magnesium or aluminum and 930 transmission. Pricing is based on the client sending us an exchange part and excludes shipping from TwinSpark Racing to the client. We now execute this modification at TwinSpark in The Netherlands, significantly reducing shipping expenses.
