    I can’t say I have ever seen a main shaft nut come off like that in the years I was building transaxles. Weird.

    Since you’re going to be in it, might be worth getting rid of that brass shift fork for 1/2 and getting a steel one.

    The shift plates showed a little wear, but the cause of the problem was the gear stack getting loose (from the nut that fell off). I peened the nut in place, and used a little loctite. We had some better shift plates that I swapped out, and new synchros while this far apart.

    Woo wee. That was a lot of grinding. I am like a sissy when it comes to grinding metal. I need goggles I hate getting shit in my eyes especially metal😬 I did pretty good I think I got all the metal out of my Ballz. Thanks for the help kcw. Hopefully a bad ass upgrade for the TRIP to BBB.

    Dan G’s 66 beetle here for some love. We found the number 1 cylinder at 78% indicating a bad exhaust valve. Pat removed the engine and disassembled to a short block for inspection. It had dished pistons, worn exhaust valve seat, and bad lifter/cam contact surface. I suggested a rebuild at Painter’s Grinding. Β Dan approved.

    I think this engine is one of those late 90’s all new long-blocks you could get from VW by the lack of numbers and Audi emblems on everything.

    All of the lifters had a similar surface and I could feel the texture with a pick.
