I know it’s a long shot, but does anyone want to part with a NOS FAG pinion bearing? 113311219A Type 1 swing axle gear box.
Willing to pay for shipping from EU as well. Let me know!
Mark? You have anyone in UK or eu that’s holding onto some?
I thought I had one lined up, but it fell through. I’d like to put all new bearings in this thing if I can.
😊 thanksBaja MarkParticipantSeptember 3, 2020 at 12:02 pmPost count: 450
I don’t really know anyone who gets into gearbox rebuilds that seriously except for Daniel Artigas in Pahrump.Vwsarent4hippiesParticipantSeptember 3, 2020 at 7:37 pmPost count: 119

I spoke to Daniel; he’s going to look in his private stash.MikeKParticipantSeptember 4, 2020 at 8:40 amPost count: 286ColeBModeratorSeptember 4, 2020 at 8:47 amPost count: 2398
Thanks for the help! Still on the hunt… I even emailed SKF yesterday asking about reproducing them:) hahaha long shot, but thought I’d ask. Crazy to think that a bearing used in millions of vw trans would be unavailable…
I’ll make the calls to those guys today. And Mark, let me know if he says anything. Tell him thanks for looking! I really appreciate all the help.PeteParticipantSeptember 4, 2020 at 10:27 amPost count: 1041ColeBModeratorSeptember 4, 2020 at 10:54 amPost count: 2398
That is it. But bus depot doesn’t show it out of stock… I tried to order it a couple weeks ago and then I called a week later after it still said processing and they said it’s “back ordered with no eta”. 🙄Seems a bit weird companies can take your money and then just not contact you saying it’s back ordered. Almost like they were hoping I’d forget and just keep my money when we all know they aren’t producing them anymore hahaPeteParticipantSeptember 4, 2020 at 11:22 amPost count: 1041
I’m sure you’ve worked the Google and checked these other sites, probably with the same “haven’t updated our website” but thought I’d share anyway:John JonesModeratorSeptember 8, 2020 at 1:37 pmPost count: 8861
Was thinking about this project…. going to be a thrash session and fun…. 😎 Were going to need to have as much “predone” as possible, AND knock out a body restoration in a week…. 😎 😎 😎ColeBModeratorSeptember 8, 2020 at 11:42 pmPost count: 2398
Going to be lots of fun. And it’s going to suck. In all the good ways haha. Hopefully with the motor and trans done it’ll go smooth.ColeBModeratorSeptember 9, 2020 at 9:28 pmPost count: 2398
Think I found why this transmission got pulled… haha pulled everything apart for the trans and washed it. Checked everything so I know what to order for it tonight. Slowly chipping away…mtnbusParticipantSeptember 9, 2020 at 9:38 pmPost count: 1537

Yeah that looks crazy all exploded; I’m sure it’s satisfying work when you know what you’re doing though!
