I found this forum with the hope one can help me.
For a year ago I got the idea of building me a scale model of a car.
I decided it should be in a 1 to 5 scale and build from scratch. After browsing a round the web I decided it would be a 917 KH.
The reason for this was that I found some technical drawings which could help me out.
First of all I wanted to make 3D drawings of a 917 and parts. All with the exact dimensions
Afterward I could resize them to 20% and use them as my building plan.
I divided the whole job in 3 pieces ( actually 4 if you also will see the 3D drawings as one)
The spaceframe with drivetrain, the engine with gearbox and the plastic body
Here with some renders from the 3D drawings.
To me it was clear I wanted to rebuild the engine as close to reality as possible.
This means building in metal.
But now why I'm here.
As you can see I know a lot of the engine and all the small parts are no problem. But what beginning to become a problem is the gearbox.
Nobody seems interested to show the inside of the gearbox. No drawings no pictures.
What I do know it's a big 4 or 5 speed transaxle gearbox with a Borg and Beck clutch and his own oil pump.
I only have a side view of this gearbox and comparing this to a 908 box only gives me a small idea of what's might be in it.
I followed a lot of tips from other people about were to find this information but most of the time the drawings were the same
Is there maybe anybody on this forum who knows if those technical drawings of a 917 gearbox do exist or that I better stop searching because they don't
