I'm looking into converting a 1.6L B5 to electric drive (that's right, electric) and to that end I need to make an adapter for the electric motor to go on the gearbox bell housing as well as fit flywheel and clutch. I would like to prepare all this before buying the car so I'm looking for a scrap gearbox I can make the fitting on so it's ready for the real car.
I've loosely looked around but parts for Audis aren't that frequent on junkyards yet so I was wondering if it shares a gearbox with any VW models which would presumably be much easier to find. it doesn't have to be identical in all aspects, just the bell housing and axle must be identical.
anyone know if any other car share that design with a 95-96 B5 1.6L?
maybe the golf III ? or passat
or know where such info could be found.
