Re: Gearbox / Swing Axle Query / Engine Compatibility

You can't fit a later geabox direct into a 59 as the front mount is different. The later gearbox needs a late nosecose & gasket. Plus a conversion mount - http://vwjim.co.uk/ourshop/prod_6234733-Early-Gearbox-Adaptor-Mount-Kit.html That will give you better gear ratios and brakes than the earlier se...

IMHO stock carb is better on a stock engine / stock exhaust WITH the factory air filter / pre-heat etc etc.

Re: Good make of beam centre pin kit -1967 Splitscreen

Re: Brake problem!!

Have you looked at anything on the bus yet?

I'd suspect a leaking joint or leaking rear slave cylinder.

Minimal effect on ride height. You'll been to redo the tracking though during the process.
