    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.

    Yeah. Those would be 65-67 backing plates, because they have 6 bumps for the shoes to ride on. No adjustment holes, and wide slot/angled adjuster.

    Type 3 are 1” larger diameter brake drums, so the shoes would not fit.

    The slider pawls came out of place and stuck the slider ring. I don’t see any damage yet.

    You’ll want to measure the width of the original brake shoes to determine the year.

    Do the backing plates have holes to access the adjusters star nuts(68+)?

    Busted again!! Jesse’s bus stuck in first gear as he rolled into the shop yard on Sunday. I verified the shift ring was stuck through the oil fill hole. I took the nosecone loose in the bus, and pushed the transaxle back.

    Noticed the main shaft nut has fallen off.

    Everything has to come apart. Do you have any upgrades in mind Jesse? Stock clutch? 59+ front transaxle rubber mount?

    Haha, thats nuts Ben!

    I like the ending.

    I sorted all the trans parts and condensed down into one and a list….Not sure that I’ll be able to set the ring and pinion depth without the correct tools. But I’m going to keep moving forward until there is a problem. Super beetle main shaft, 4.12 r&p, and early 3rd/4th gears.

    Haha Jeff.

    I disassembled and power washed parts again. The engine tin is going to need paint work.

    I just ran a leak-down test and found exhaust valve leaks with #2 (50%) and #3 (70%). I wonder if it had a fuel injection issue causing it to get hot. I vote to send it to Painter’s for a long-block rebuild and a set of dual Webers.

    Yeah pretty gross. Cleaned up nice, but looks like the mice got up in the cooling tin, evident by the poop-soup dripping out of the heater boxes.

    Started on this barn find 76 yesterday. Plan is to get it running and road-ready.

    The engine and fuel tank were buried in mouse shit. So, that was fun to take apart.

    Yeah, smaller fuel cell assuming the track is similar length to last year.

    Light below your eyes will cut through the dust better, and the KC light bar housings are heavy.

    67 beetle axles

    And I don’t normally bench bleed. Because we use a vacuum bleeder to suck fluid through the system before the pedal is pressed.

    I’m most careful to not press the pedal on a dry master because it can flip or damage the seals.

    Sooo, we have a green light to pull the engine out and take it apart?

    I played with trannies all weekend. 76 super, 73 super, 72, and 69 disassembled to combine into one good class 11 unit.
