Yip that guy sure has some skill the only thing I think spoilling the back of the doka are those hidious Hinges he has put on there

The lid on the back the hinges are so nicely hiden but the back those Kitchen door hinges are like a after thought

Re: Immaculate Conversion
Very neat re-built/conversion, bet it flies well too. 8-) 8-) Like Bugger says, those hinges really spoil the whole job :o :o Wont work for a Syncro though as those plastic/fibreglass side panels and add on's wont last long off road :lol: :lol: Still, must say, the guy did a very nice job of it, just those hinges......

Re: Immaculate Conversion
One of my Original choices of motor was the S4 5Cylinder Quattro Motor as you can find them at some of the importers But they are still around R12K which is not to bad
But then went for Zoom Zoom as I had Motor adapter and Microtech EFI

May be still one day will build a Syncro Doka with the Quattro motor and some Serious boost as they make easy 450Hp with out battle

Re: Immaculate Conversion
Pierre,

If you gonna build a DokaSyncro with that much hp i suggest you start collecting all the Syncro gearboxes you can find... :lol: :lol:
You sure going to need them as replacements :roll: :roll:

3rd and 4th gears with reinfoced ones, now 3rd is 1,18 and 4th 0,70.
There is a gap now between 3rd and 4th gears but the Tdi motor helps to overtake this.
Also 3rd-4th gears slider hub with reinfoced one as this part is weak on T3 gearboxes made before 1989 i think.
I have added also SA oiling plates to be sure that there will be enough oil to the bearings they need it.
Appart from these i have changed all gearbox bearings, 2-3-4 synchros, all gaskets, seals, o-rings. circlips.
Finally i added a decoupler and a solid shaft as i do extensive use on sand where this setup makes a huge difference.
It was an expensive rebuilt but now with all these i feel less anxious about my gearbox.

Re: Immaculate Conversion
Yes can imagine it was not cheap but in South Africa with the Exchange rate it is even worse but I got 3de and 4th in my 2Wd Lockable box I got in My Rotary Turbo Doka
as the money spent is worth it as you will mot easy break the gears again even with hard abuse
