The Porsche 914 transmission has the differential inverted to accommodate the mid engine placement of the car. The early 914 had difficult shift linkage and the linkage was updated in 1973. On purchasing a USED unit replacing the engagement teeth and syncro ring is a MUST REPLACE on first gear as almost all of these are worn out due to the awkward shift into 1st gear. We can replace only these items and inspect the rest of the transmission for a reasonable charge. Please Inquire as to current cost. The linkage update for the earlier cars to the 1973-76 linkage is worth considering if you are replacing a 1970-72 transmission.
All transmissions will include a core charge that will be refunded in exchange for your old transmission core. We will arrange for the pickup of the your core once you let us know that it is ready for pick up. If we rebuild your transmission there is no core charge.
All transmissions will be shipped via truck freight. The shipping charges will be calculated after your order is submitted to get you the best possible rate. A commercial address will give you much better rates than a residence. These days the trucking companies look at Google Maps to see the destination and will raise the price if the destination is residential. Please provide the company name under "special instructions" when checking out. An additional charge is charged by the trucking company for lift gate service. All transmissions will be secured inside a wooden or plastic crate for shipping. This crate is used for the return of the core.

Let us rebuild your transmission: It may be better to rebuild your transmission as it will keep the cars original gearbox and may be less expensive if only one or two things are wrong with the unit. Some transmissions are too damaged to rebuild (run out of oil, Crash damage, ect) and at that point we would suggest one of our exchange units.
