Suzuki gearbox ?

hi
In the old days of installing the 1.6 there was a kit out that welded a tang on the suzuki gearbox for a bolt hole etc .
The question is whats the gearbox made of ( can't get to my suzuki to have a look ) ie alloy , what spec , or steel . After all these years I can't remember ( never wondered I guess) . Anyway what was the material that the tang was made out of and what did they use to weld it ? Any ideas

Thanks
Monty

Re: Suzuki gearbox ?

The tranny case is aluminum, so the tabs should be the same if they are to be welded on.......

Re: Suzuki gearbox ?


to weld aluminum its best to TIG weld it. MIG alum kits work, but for this fairly highly stressed job, I'd
stay with TIG.
