Hi

Motor is nearly finished of, we ordered a Subarugear reverse transmission kit to suit a WB or Type 4 motor. I think the flywheel is pretty sexy.

Hi

My sons bug has been in storage for 12 months, got it out and one of the front brake calipers decided to stick. So were going fit the old Porsche brakes that I had on my 1302 and then my 1303.

He bought some fake 18 inch twists on eBay and had them painted Mazda soul red. We've now gone to 114.5 x 5 pattern and will fitting some cool Japanese wheels to car.

Not sure I'd ever do it, but I'd love to bolt a upright converted T4 to a reversed Subaru 5 speed. Bucket list, I guess.

I recall that trip to the States, Steve. I never saw you buying parts(at least at the Classic) but I do recall you talking about it once you got home. That's what I call planning ahead.

Looking good!

Hi John

It was good to meet you and other VW people on that trip. I picked up parts from a few suppliers, one was Moore parts I think. I had CB bring the heads to the Classic.

The motor progress has slowed a little as my machinist friend passed away earlier this year, he had done almost all of the machine work on the Oxy Boxer.

I want to dowel the flywheel to the crank and not just rely on the 5 bolts to hold it on.

Imo that doesn't do much if at all. Flywheel attachment relies solely on friction of the flat surface. Thats why the high torque of the bolt come in. If you reduce the surface (i.e. puts 5 dowels in there)...
If you break the friction, no dowel is gonna help you.
Anyways, I run without dowels, just the BAS 12.9 bolts and those are loose in the chinese chro-mo flywheel holes, go figure! Holds my junk so far ;-)

YMMV though.

Hi Wally

Interesting, the Subaru gears flywheel requires longer that normal bolts that's why I was thinking about doweling the flywheel and crank

I've converted my sons bug to 5 x 114.3 or 4.5 inch stud pattern

Been doing some test fitting with a 17 & 18 stager, needs to go lower
