I just bought two cars. An ugly and cheep GTV 2.0 with a broken engine and a 156 1.9 jtd with good engine and gearbox and the rest is rust. The plan was a second hand 2.0 engine for the GTV and the 156 was just too cheap so I bought it.
But after just half a beer tonight I started wondering on a Diesel GTV. Why? Because why not? (guess there is many why not's, but we do not need that discussion)
As I have read on this forum it is not possible to use a 156 gearbox in a GTV. Because of gear linkages and that the 156 has the slave cylinder inside the bell-housing, rather than externally.
Linkages I can see will be a problem, but what is the problem with the slave cylinder inside the bell-housing?
Any other things you guys think will give me big problems?
