Identifying a CX/VX Transmission
Are there some identiying marks on a CX/VX transmission that distinguish it from the other models? If not, how can one determine a CX/VX tranny by looking at it?

The one in my basement certainly is. It's for sale, of course.

i've got 2 cx/vx trannies as well 4 sale

j*f encoded on the sticker by the front torque mount
where * = letter/number
my memory mastery reminder for this is "Jah Fuel"
i'm not sure on how complete this is for identification of them on a regular basis...
of all the cx/vx trannies i've seen...3 or 4...they all had it...

your best bet is to get an old clutch. mark it. Place the mark at 12 o' clock

push the shift rod into the trans, putting it in 4th gear (0.853)
mark the differential.

the final drive is 3.25, 4th gear is 0.853

3.25 * 0.853 = 2.77225

it should take 2.77225 full revolutions of the clutch to make one full revolution of the differential.

so it should turn 2.77 times and end up pointing a little after 9'o clock to make one full revolution.

and of course make sure that the sstamp near the oil fill plug says a000 instead of b000.

serial numbers mean nothing.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I picked up a CX tranny a couple of weeks ago for $75 and it goes in the car tomorrow hopefully. The sticker says J8B and I did the suggested test and I ended up a little after 9 o'clock so I'm pretty sure it was not misrepresented by the seller.

Is it possible to put an HF transmission in my '97 civic HX without to many modifications---I see the HF is cable while the later HX has hydro control.

Completely different mounts, pedals, etc.

is there a reason you want the HF transmission over the HX/CX/VX transmission? I'm pretty certain that the existing transmission will actually be longer geared than the HF transmission.

Matt, the HF has longer gearing than the vx/cx, which has longer gearing than the HX.

Anyway, yeah, you won't have much luck with it, I'd toss a cx transmission in if I were you (or vx, whatevs).

Here's the relevant gearing too look at: https://crxmpg.com/9200dgearing.html
