NG3 Identification
« on: Monday,September 18, 2017, 09:22:13 AM »
Can anybody tell me the ratios for the NG3 gearbox that I have?  The code is:



I've done some googling and gone through the NG3 workshop manual PDF, but the 035 number doesn't appear in the NG3 lists.  From what I recall, the gearbox came from a Fuego, but that's all I know.  It's definitely a 5 speed as I've had the rear cover off to modify the shift rod/lever and there is a 5th gear.

My manual shows these ratios (in attached picture).

BDA,
I think that's a listing for an NG0 (4 speed), there's a lack of a 5th ratio.

Oops!! You're right. I see 025 and 039 but not 035! I found the same thing on the other NG manual on http://lotus-europa.com/manuals/! Maybe you need to make a call to Meca Parts or Alpine America.
