    Is anyone aware of the A415 Automatic Transaxle that was created for Chrysler's original European business arm for the 1.6 liter engine from the Simca 1100, and was also used on several Talbot models?
    Ironically, FCA-even with the Fiat Group in the picture; has come full circle, as FCA will be merging with PSA, which consists of Chrysler's original European business arm in its pedigree, and the models that the A415 Automatic Transaxle were developed for.

    I have a Talbot/Horizon Haynes manual with a few pics of the trans.

    I'm assuming it must be the A-415 as I found this ATRA manual picture online.

    My guess is its an A-404 with a Simca style bellhousing bolt pattern.

    Thanks
    Randy

    All 3-speed automatics.
    The Omni/Horizon used the A-404 automatic transaxle behind the 1.7L VW engine.
    The A-413 was behind the 2.2L/2.5L/2.6L and later Neon 2.0L.
    The A-470 was behind the 3.0L V6.
    When the Omni/Horizon dropped the 1.7L VW and temporarily went to the 1.6L PSA engine while the 2.2L production was being ramped up, perhaps the A-415 transaxle was used behind the 1.6L for exports? The U.S. market only saw the stick-shift offered behind the 1.6L.

    P.S. - Unless the A-415 might have been behind a diesel version, which was not in the U.S. market.

    The A470 was also behind the 2.6 Liter Mitsu motor in my 1986 Caravan. Basically it is an A413 with the bell housing for the Mitsu motors.

    Mitsu 4 cyl Engines used the A-470, the 3.0l V6 Mitsu Engine used the A-670, when 3 speed..

    A-470 and A 670 bell housings were different from each other.

    Thanks

    According to wiki,
    The A415 was developed for the 1.6 L Simca 1100 engine, but was not released for series production in the USA. It was used in Europe, on Talbot Simca, 1510 and Solara.
