news today is that the ZFQ went for its first powered drive in a GT40 and all is well and living up to expectations. All gears are present and correct and no noise can be herd from the trans, the ATB is also working well with even power distribution to the rear wheels.
The only feeling I can relate this to is like being an expectant father
the cooler in the pictures is an engine oil cooler but the ZFQ has the option for a trans cooler pump. The trans pump bolts to the rear case and is driven off the pinion shaft, the gold rear blanking plate is used to sandwich the pump. The flow and return ports are situated on the crown wheel casing.
I know, I'm a complicated man, and I do not want do to like others.....
I'm planning to build a 962 replica. (actually i'm making 3D plans on solidworks CAD)
Do you know if the ZFQ can be used upside down ?
is it possible to change the side of the gear selector ?
and last, do you have a 3D model (only external) that i can use to make the integration with the crossmember and the rear suspension??
(in fact, i've made a design from the pdf you post, but it's not accurate)
road tests are going well and the ATB diff transmits the power nice and evenly keeping the car straight and true without the step out apparent with other LTD transmissions. I thought I would post pictures of the clutch folk cross shaft option.
Fantastic!! Glad to see that things are going well with the tests. It is good to hear that all is quiet...lol. That wide body with the "snorkies" on it looks really nice...I think that will be my final choice. Who is the manufacture of that body if you happen to know?
The car in those pictures is Mick Sollis's Southern GT taken I guess about 5 seconds after SVA approval! The man is so keen he can't even wait for paint! It does not have a widened bodyshell, that is the standard item.
