Nope. Look for nine bolts inside the bell housing going through it into the trans. Where do you think the photos above came from? They are with the bell off. See the ring of holes? The upper photo still has the 9 big bolts hand spun in, besides the smaller bolts for the retainer.

X2 on the ax-15 ever having a bell housing that was one with the body, weird, but then again you also said you couldn't see the inspection plate bolts because they were covered in grease. Hey and easy on the hating there big fella, jeez.

If the trans doesnt have a removable bellhousing its not an AX15 at all its a Peugeot BA-10/5. Peugot on the left ax15 on the right.

You know I remember reading in a thread a while back here that There were BA-10's with non-removable housings

HI all,
I feel like a fool. You all are right. The bell housing is indeed separate. The tranny is so dirty that the seam between the tranny and the bell housing is invisible. However, the bolts inside the bell housing tell the truth just like you described.

I just got home from work and went immediately to the garage to check it out. I don't know about converting to an external slave. It looks like the bell housing would have to be replaced with one that could handle the additional clutch linkage, the external slave and a normal throwout bearing. Even so, it would be worthwhile.

So let me aplogize a thousand times. You guy's know what you are talking about and I'm still learning. I like to learn. Thanks for putting up with me.

Yes sir, I am pretty sure it was Don who originally pointed this out, but it really is a pretty easy conversion to the external slave. If you can do it, rebuild that ax-15 and convert, you have a nice spare or you can easily sell it, either way, you win. Plus, you get to do something really cool along the way, I love working on these things man! And I know you do too.
