View Full Version : What is this bell housing is this (M90?)

11-02-2004, 01:33 AM
I found this swedish site with a lot of photos of a V70 2.5 build up for a 240 instalation.
Under the "motor" and "Växellåda (supra)" links you will find some photos of the transmission and more importantly bell housing.

For those in the know, is this an M90 bellhousing or AW30-40 or M56 (FWD)? It looks like an automatic AW30-40 to me but without getting under the car tomorrow morning I can't be sure. This is definitely the path I want to go with the 960.

Finished product.

Can't be m90, the m90 has an attached bellhousing afaik.

So either the whiteblocks share a bolt pattern w/another make or that is indeed a modified aw30 bellhousing. If you go hydrallic clutch there wouldn't be a ton of modifications needed.

Växellåda = gearbox (put that into your Swedish/english Lexicon :) )

If ou look around a little bit with that in mind you'll find that he's using a gearbox from a
Toyota Supra
6cyl 3.0 Turbo -90

For more info regarding the bellhouse, you might have to mail him:

It looks like a automatic bellhousing since it has no hole for a clutcharm!

looks like the FWD bellhousing that . M90 are integral . Hydaulic centre bearing would work with that , in fact is the preferred choice .
