I need approximately a 7:1 reduction. I first planned to put the motor on top of a mini gearbox and connect them with a belt, but I got nervous about the strength and lifetime of the belt. I've now got an old stock reconditioned Mitsubishi Mirage gearbox from the early 80's. It's got 4 gears plus overdrive and input shaft doesn't need to be supported by the motor. The box & motor just fit with no modifications to the subframe. The input shaft is diameter is big enough that it can be cut down to fit the motor.
Auckland City Library have
- Mitsubishi FWD models automotive repair manual
- Mitsubishi engine and transmission workshop manual 1981
- Mitsubishi Tredia, Cordia, Space wagon workshop manual 1985
Reconditioners neglect preload!
2.12 - (1.84+1.87+1.89)/3 = 0.25
Required Preload 0.15 - 0.2mm
Required Shim 2.067-2.017mm
Required end float 0 - 0.05mm
Required shim 1.805 - 1.855mm
Required end float 0 - 0.15mm
Needs to be On-Off-On type. This looks good -- locking lever.
