091

Hi every one, about four months ,I bought some magnesium metals, 3"x8" round stock, and a.750x12x12 flat stock. I also had a bell housing from an old project. My goal was to make a mount to run the engine on. But, just the welding rods are oner 200$, let alone the welders fee.

Here's my question, I'm told that some of the late models bus trans bell housing, were bolted onto the trans, what year are they, if the is true.

I think all of the 002/091 bell housings were removable (My 69' 002 was). They occasionally pop up on thesamba.com for sale.

You can use any beetle transmission and cut a ring about 5cm wide from the flywheel side of the transmission. If you use 3cm. long M10 nuts to mount the engine to that ring you can bolt it to an enginestand and run it that way.

Like this.
