If it bolts to a D series, and it has the larger axles, it's a ZC. IF you figure out how much it should spin in X gear vs another tranny that it might be, you should be able to figure it out. Does it have LSD?

It does bolt up an no, but that would have been a bonus if it did.

After looking it over it looks to be just an SI transmission, plus the L3 on it is a dead giveaway, which is not a problem since i needed another one anyway.

But a Zc tranny does not have any markings or numbers on it to differentiate it.

Well i don't have any extra CRX axles kickin around to put into it, but at this point i am assuming yes. It does say L3 on it, but that is the only identifying marks.

No big deal really, i needed a new transmission anyway.

Equal length axles are nice though. My ZC tranny case *I think* says L3, it's really faded and hard to tell though.
So the only REAL way to tell is what size axle the tranny will accept?

HMMMMMMmmm......

If i had some pics to compare the two transmissions or some measurements, something....

And this, which was also in the link i posted up.

Original info by "stick"

"Identifying a transmission by mathematical calculation

By placing the transmission in 5th gear and turning the input shaft 10 times and measuring how many times the differential rotates, you can theoretically figure out which transmission you have from the following equation:

10 / (5th gear ratio) / (Final drive ratio) = (# of turns of the differential)

Examples:

CRX HF
10 / .694 / 3.250 = 4.43 turns of the differential

CRX DX
10 / .771 / 3.888 = 3.34 turns of the differential

CRX Si
10 / .771 / 4.25 = 3.05 turns of the differential

DOHC ZC
10 / .878 / 3.888 = 2.93 turns of the differential

SOHC ZC (same gearing as CRX Si)
10 / .771 / 4.25 = 3.05 turns of the differential

SOHC ZC ZXi
10 / .771 / 4.437 = 2.92 turns of the differential

Obviously this method doesn't help you differentiate the normal DOHC ZC transmission from the SOHC ZC ZXi transmission, so you will also need to do a test in 1st gear.

10 / (1st gear ratio) / (Final drive ratio) = (# of turns of the differential)

Examples:

DOHC ZC
10 / 3.250 / 3.888 = 0.79 turns of the differential

SOHC ZC ZXi
10 / 3.250 / 4.437 = 0.69 turns of the differential"

HOLY CRAP!!! :(

Why couldn't Honda just put a stamp on it! :x

Are you building a hybrid or just using the ZC?
If it were a Zc i would have liked to use it, in one way or another, either using the gears from it or using the entire tranny.

DAMN Honda again for not stamping it, like it has before with so many other transmissions, these have to be the "special" ones. :x
