    HELP

    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.

    😊 thanks

    I don’t really know anyone who gets into gearbox rebuilds that seriously except for Daniel Artigas in Pahrump.

    I spoke to Daniel; he’s going to look in his private stash.

    Greg (Mr Gas) down in Florence may have the bearings.  He specializes in VW trans’.  Mainly Syncro, but he builds everything.

    Good guy.

    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.

    Given the difficulty you’re having tracking it down I’m assuming this isn’t what you’re looking for but thought I’d share it just in case:

    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 haha

    That sucks.

    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:

    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.
