A Frankenstein 806/966


Red Dirt 806

Recommended Posts

Think of the front radiator casting. That’s what comes to my mind first anyway. They are not compatible with the other style hoods 

you could swap out the transmissions and rear end  though. Put the 806 center  and rear  into the 966. Use the 966’s fuel tank and steering column.  And speed and range covers off the 966.

He has this posted in projects too. I told him no. Two inch difference in bell housing widths . Pretty sure bolt pattern doesn't match either.

I was assuming that the end result would look like a 966, so the radiator and radiator support would come along with the 966 front half.

If the desired result is to have it look like an 806, then it's a bit more work.

Turns out from the other tread that you don't have to change the column at all. All the 66 series stuff allegedly bolts on to the 806 column. So no need to change the range cover if you don't mind keeping the 806 shifting.
