There's a group buy ongoing for them here; http://www.forums.turbobricks.com/sh...16#post5379616

Mueller sent me a pm about 2 weeks ago to let me know he was sold out and that I should start making chips fly.

ok, someones gotta help me here.... A fox body v8 T5 input shaft from tip to trans face plate is 7.18" A 960 bellhousing with deeworks adapter is only 6.25" from block to trans face plate. I stuck a clutch alignment tool into the crank and it bottoms out so the splines are even with the flwheel.

Anyway, its about 1/2-3/4" too long. I cant get the bell to mate with the engine. What am I missing here.... Its not like no one has done this.

I'm learning myself on this combo.

Is it the V8 T5 that you should use or the 2.3 4 cylinder model?

The 4 cylinder T5 has a shorter input shaft.

Default What Bellhousing fits a T5 engine (2006 Focus XR5) for a BW T5 swap?

Hello, I am the new guy to this forum & thread and will ask a few 'dumb' questions, so please bear with me. I live in Alice Springs, NT Australia, and have a good used 20V 2.5 Turbo engine from an Aussie-spec Ford Focus XR5. I would like to convert it to an inline RWD setup. Questions:
1. What bellhousing should I use for the RWD swap? Model and year(s) would be helpful.
2. What model Volvo six engine would have the donor oil pan to cut & shorten?
Thanks for any help!
Ray

The donor parts come from any Volvo 960. They had a whiteblock 6 cylinder in a rear wheel drive format. The only RWD whiteblock car volvo ever did.

The modular nature of the whitblock engine means you can take the 960 oil pan, pickup, and water tube and cut them down and reweld to fit on a 5 or even a 4 cylinder whiteblock. You just cut one or two cylinder's width out of those parts.

The Bellhousing from the 960's AW30-40 unbolts from the transmission. This is the magic piece to use with one of Mueller-cum-Roger's adaptors. It will let you use one of the many flavors of T5 transmission.

Luckily, 960's are pretty cheap to come by. Especially now that they are on their 3rd or 4th owners that ignore the maintenance and will run them into the junkyard....

I assumed you wanted to go to a manual as well. If an automatic is what you want, the AW30-40 in the 960 is a fine transmission. Its the same thing that the Supra used and they have been built to handle crazy power for the dragstrip. You can also manually control them.

Default Bellhousing, Etc. from 960 for RWD T5 - Thanks

Thanks for the info. So I intend to get the manual trans (M90?) bell housing from a 960, I-6 oil pan, pickup and water tube to modify for my Turbo 5. I'll use the adapter from Roger Dee to mate up with a World class T5 for a 'Stang. Now, all I need to do is locate a donor 960 ..... wonder if any 960's made it to Australia? Might have to hunt around for awhile....
Thanks again!
Ray

Theres heaps of 960s over here, id be more worried about the lack of mounting bosses on the side of the motor to use with the 960 mounts

Ive actually got a T5 - whiteblock adapter plate with hardware down in Melbourne im thinking of selling if you are interested?

Default T5 Adapter and Hardware

Well, good to talk to a local Volvo guy. Yes, I would be interested in the conversion bits. I have searched ebay and gumtree and haven't found any 960's cars or parts. None up here in Alice Springs, NT. If you can help me locate the donor parts, that would be sweet. We can hook up on the phone or facebook sometime too.
Cheers

Yep, I will go manual. I plan to us a BW T5 from a 'stang, so I think I need the M90 bell housing to use with the adapter that is available. Not sure about that, I saw a M90 in a pic in this forum, and it didn't appear to have a removable bell housing, am I wrong?

I'm not sure what body this little ex-XR5 Turbo will go into, but it will be either a small drag car, and maybe a burnout car. I'm used to building up Fords and Holdens for the drags, this will be my first turbo anything car. Should be a real adventure, wonder if anyone has done it in Oz yet ......

The m90 doesn't have a removable bell housing. You need an automatic transmission's bellhousing from a 960.

That is what you use to mate to the t5 transmission.

Yes. The auto has the bellhousing you need. Which is good, because they made like 10 times as many autos vs the M90 cars.

Default What is the Auto Trans designation ?

In case I'm hunting the wreckers, what is the 960 Auto Trans called? Type or model number.
Thanks

AW30-40. It's an Aisin Warner transmission that was also used in the Supra. I think they called it something different though. Like A340 or something like that.

Any way, it should be the only automatic that volvo put in the 960 behind the 6 cylinder.

Almost all 960's will be a whiteblock 6 cylinder. Some euro markets (like Italy) got a 960 with a redblock 4 cylinder. But I think Australian markets got the B6304 and B6254 6 cylinder whiteblocks. Both are the same, just different capacities.

B= Benzine (gasoline, petrol)
6= Number of cylinders
30 or 25= Displacement
4= Valves per cylinder


So a B6304 is a Gas powered, 3 liter, 4 valve per cylinder engine.

They were all "whiteblocks" which means they were aluminum blocks. The old redblocks are iron and painted red. Hence the name.

The 960 was the last rear wheel drive car Volvo did. It was the ONLY rwd car with a whiteblock. Most of them had the AW30-40 automatic, but some got the M90 5 speed manual.

So the 960 has the only oilpan, pickup, motor mounts, water tube, and bellhousing that will work in a RWD platform. Some of that stuff can be worked around with custom bits, but the oilpan, pickup, and bellhousing are real important if you want to put a FWD engine into a RWD chassis.


FWIW, the B6304 share a lot of stuff with the later FWD twin turbo 6 cylinders. You can use parts from those cars to get some easy gains if you are looking for around 300 HP.

Thread-resurrection!

Because info still be slim on this complete transformation. (I've scoured, honest!)

This will be an ongoing project/list/how-to and I will give a complete list of junk and costs you need to do this right. So stay tuned!

*** - are bullet points and + should be child information. Offset does not work in the forum. ***

Parts:
- 960 Auto Bellhousing
- Ford T5 (some years vary, mines from a 2002 GT w 4.6 V-8)
- Beef/Stg 0 your T5
+ 5speeds.com Countershaft Bearing Kit (DO NOT GET THE EBAY kit as it does not fit)
+ Bronze slider pads for 1-2 and 3-4 assemblies
+ GM Input Shaft Bearing Retianer
+ Set Input Shaft Play to zero. (50/50 if you need to re-shim or not. 5speeds.com has an adjustable shim kit if needed)
+ Use Loctite 38655 515 Gasket Maker Flange Sealant. No RTV slop needed. And a thin coat is all you need, don't go crazy and over apply! (sloppy)
- DeeWorks - Roger's Adapter Plate:
+ https://www.deeworks.ca/product/t5-b...ssion-adapter/
+ I have a couple concerns on this, but I will withhold commentary until matted to the bell.
- Flywheel: 850/850R single mass
- Pressure Plate: 850/850R - Rhino Pac / AMS Automotive 04-138 Premium Clutch Kit
+ Claims to be for the 850R
+ $74 at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- Speedway GM Hydraulic T/O Bearing:
+ Thus the need to change to the GM Input Shaft Bearing Retainer!
+ $98 at https://www.speedwaymotors.com/GM-St...ring,1945.html
+ Get the Speedway remote bleeder at the same time.
- Clutch Disc: Centerforce 281228
+ 1980s (1985) Mustang SVOs with the 2.3L Turbo 4 cylinder engine. Non-SVO 2.3 will be 8.5" which is too small.
+ 1 1/16 in.- 10-Spline, 9.062 in. vs the 850 9" disc so a perfect match with off the self parts.
+ $84 at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KIKX0DER&psc=1

I still need other items to complete the Hydraulic pedal cluster, which will be added later. Probably a mix of Volvo and after market AN lines. And custom driveshaft which will come last.

Not a cheapskate conversion at all. I figure anyone doing this will probably have a beefy T6/T5 Turbo motor attached.

If anyone has completed this on TB please chime in and share your journey!
