Quick question

Postby mrdubbin » Thu Apr 21, 2011 2:51 pm

Will a Type III engine and trans fit into a Type I or would it involve way to much work? Just wondering. Not really all that important. Just sitting around brain storming and wondered other than the tins if there were any other differences.

Trans should fit. we talking IRS or swing? I think swing axles might not fit width wise.

Engine would fit after you strip all the ugly off. youll need this to adapt to get an oil dip stick since T3 is built into the filler.

If your looking to put your wagons motor into the super.....

Im sure that motor has a 6v fly wheel so youll have to deal with that. and the wagon is a swing, super is IRS. wont work..well easily anyway :)

I should have said the hockey stick, not nose cone. I think the t3 has the set screw for the coupler on the bottom?

Well it's a 74 I think. And it's not a super it's a regular bug. I don't know for sure on the suspension cause it's all missing. I will have to replace the whole rear end the only things that are there are the square pieces that hold the hubs on everything else is gone. I don't know for sure if I'm gonna do it. If I can get the money together soon I want to just get that bug from you JP and then I can see about piecing together a running bug lol. Just a thought not sure which way I wanna go with it.

super and 74 are the same rear end.

If your planning on that squares motor, i would say forget it. Its not going to be as cheap and easy as you think.
