Advice about gearbox codes?

Post by chillicamper on Sun Jun 26 2011, 07:11

Right....I have now got the engine out of the van to get sorted.

Whilst I was under there I thought I would look at the gearbox as it's also getting very noisy. I checked out the code - just to see what I have got. - Yeah, I know......this is how a simple job snowballs into something else!

The gearbox code seems to be CF 31 104??. I thought most 1600s had a CE code gearbox. Does this mean the box has been swapped for something else in the past? or is it something simple like the E not being stamped on the case properly (it looks like its meant to be an F).

Or is this another silly Mexican coding thing sent to confuse me? Rolling Eyes

I have looked all over the interweb and can't find mention of a CF coded box???

Found the below, do you have M92 on your M code plate looks to be mountain gearing either way a CE box will do you to replace unless you get it rebuilt, but your right it doesnt appear to be listed anywhere. Neutral

The CE - box diff. has 7 : 38 ( P / R ) and the CF - box has 7 : 41 ( P / R ).

The CF - box is also listed with the M92 code (Gebirgs├╝bersetzung / Moutan gearing)

Cheers for that!

The joys of owning a Mexican van - there is no M plate as such. I have a basic VIN plate behind the LH (drivers) seat recording the Chassis numbers, axle weights etc, but no M plate to record the options etc.
I have checked around and this seems to be the case with some VWs built in countries other than Germany or from CKD kits.
I will source a CE box for now then. No point putting a rebuilt engine back on to a box that whines like a diving spitfire!
I honestly thought that the box would have given up long ago - before the engine!
