Need Help plz! HF tranny codes

I recently bought a "HF" tranny from Montana. I did the internet gear check and it came up as a DX.
I'm trying to figure out the L3...... codes


If you have a HF tranny can you PLEASE post your L3 code on the gold sticker. Or if there is any other way of identifying the HF tranny. I need something concrete to show the wrecking yard that its not an HF tranny.

Thanks !

From what I'd read on some other forums back when I was researching them, the code on the gold sticker was some sort of serial number and didn't reflect the gear ratios. I don't know that for a fact however. In any case, my 1988 hf 49 state transmission has a code of L3-1121866. Good luck.

Thanks! I dont think that the gold L3 sticker tells us much, but I would like to know what the numbers mean.

I did find some info:

look above the oil fill, there is a stamp that will say PL3/####
PL3/A### = small bearing case - DX/HF/STD
PL3/B000 = large bearing - SI/ZC
PL3/3000/6000/9000 = large bearing - SI/ZC

That info was put together with help from "Mista Bone" who is the guru of honda trans...His knowledge is probably the best you will be able to get...send him a message on Honda-Tech...

Unfortunately Honda never released any info that I could find that made IDing the cable trans easy

Edit: Ah i never clicked on the link you posted to see you found that picture already...

Quickest and most sure-fire way I've found with the tranny off the car is to just pull the one case side off and count the gears yourself........sounds hard but its only 12-12mm bolts, a tranny plug that fits a 3/8ths ratchet and 2 skinny screwdrivers and its off! Takes less than 5 min to get it off, there are links with pics but at the moment I don't have them

what's funny is that this method shown in the diagram (and I'll admit that it is valid for the 3 transmissions shown) does NOT account for the two different HF transmissions. People, are we forgetting that there were two different HF transmissions.....that is, 2 different gearings for the HF! There was the Federal models (which is the tallest geared CRX), and then there was the CA model (whose gearing was significantly shorter). Perhaps this fellow/guy bought himself a CA model HF transmission. Everyone always posts (HF trans wanted; although the differences are unbeknownst to them).
