ZF S5/18-3 gearbox (bellhousing)

PostPost by: holywood3645 » Fri Mar 31, 2006 3:01 am

This is a long shot. I'm looking for a bellhousing to mate a s5/18-3
to a 711m block.
Thanks

It's a ZF close ratio dog leg 1st 5 speed close (top 1:1) ratio
g/box used on a host of 70's rally cars. Capiable of taking 250nm
(~335bhp) It was used on Vegantune elan see link, It was usually
connected to a BDG or similar engine.

I plan to use it on a MK1 eacort with a 2.1 lrt BDG Photos of the
car added last week. I have to finish my elan first

I dropped the engine CR to 10.5:1 and have a set of milder cams its
running on twin 48 dells. I'm hoping.... but probily will not a
practical street car except for maybe a run when I feel the need. I
can't wait to see the faces on a few local honda civic drivers
faces. I had planned to run the motor in my elan but decided not
to butcher that car. The ZF gearbox was quite the find.

Jim, you should be able to get a secondhand bell housing from the Rally
Escort parts suppliers. When I was looking for a BDA to Rocket housing I was
offered a couple of these.
Regards
Steve
