Hi all
I’d like to do a bench run on my Corvair engine & bolt the starter motor on. (Before anyone asks yes the starter motor is a Corvair one with an adapter to fit VW boxes the engine still runs backwards)
The engine came out of a Splitscreen which was married up to a standard VW gearbox, this was a while ago & the bus has been sold. Dose anyone have a Bell Housing or Gearbox I can borrow for a day, I live in Woking, Surrey Image Image

Oh great what do you suggest, for me to collect or me to bring the engine to you & start it up at yours.

You can borrow the gearbox anytime. The engine stand is currently in use.

Hi
I’ve maybe collecting my wheels from Bracknell on Thursday if there finished, so I’d like to collect the gearbox if that’s ok with you.
What’s your address
Thanks
