The design depends on each shaft having two fixed gears and two gears that run on needle bearings white arrows opposite to each other: Mainshaft Pinion shaft That's the basic design but it takes a lot of smaller components to make it all work together smoothly. We replace all reverse gears. Here is a thread specifically about it. Type 2 gearbox codes Codes below are for T1 Beetle unless otherwise stated. If staying 6V there's an adapter sleeve that'll allow you to run a 6V starter in a 12V trans but I don't recommend them.
The dune buggies are cool looking and probably a blast to drive. It requires clearancing the frame horns as well as drilling holes into the bellhousing.

The Deluxe Microbus also had fancy trim attached to the exterior, that consisted of flat polished aluminum moulding that held a colored plastic bead down it's center, as well as fancy rubber trim affixed to the face of the bumpers, front and rear. The gears exist to multiply the torque from the engine to do useful work. You must have a roll cage to use this mount. I ran into a townie one day that was giving me crap about my bus.
The differential transfers the geared power from the engine to the wheels but have you ever wondered how you can turn corners while the transaxle allows each wheel to rotate at a different speed? Clutches are one of the most commonly misordered parts. In a synchronized constant mesh transmission, each gear has a synchronizer attached to it. This is because all the parts associated with the 4 forward gears and reverse are exactly the same as what are found in a Beetle 113 trans. Fourth gears - violet ratio 0. The most difficult part is making sure the parts you are ordering actually fit. Drive pinion - brown welded to the pinion shaft and connects to the ring gear not shown of the differential which drives the wheels.
This disc is the clutch gear assembly sometimes called the synchronizer hub. They typically use a 4 bolt drum but 5 bolt long spline swing axle drums will also fit. It requires the basic Berg 5 kit, a special shifter and cross member. There's no letter code stamped into older transmissions, but 8074135 would've been a 1965 model. These beams are unfortunately not able to be easily interchanged. Mounting Styles 10-Degree Mount This mounting kit tilts the engine and transaxle up 10 degrees for better ground clearance, and also allows you to run the shift rod in the same location as the T1 transaxle.
They look somewhat like a spider, hence the name. How the gears mate to the shafts and to each other is the really cool part. By deciphering the numbers on your bus's M-code plate, you can discover a lot about what your bus looked like, when it rolled off the assembly line! The tie rods on a King Pin are always the small diameter ends. Research ongoing — more to come! The mainshaft shift fork switches gears 3 and 4. The least favorable is the 1200 single port engine.
They also said if I get a 1969 or newer then I would have to reverse the rotation of the engine. You need to rig up a shifter mechanism and do some other mods to get it to fit.

See the references section for more info. While higher ratios are stronger than lower ratios and choosing a ring and pinion that is too high or too low will negatively impact optimal acceleration, power and speed. There is however a 5 rib 002 case that is more rare. Unlike the King Pin beam, the ball joint shock towers will rise straight up and curve outwards over the wheels.
