    • My 1968 Autostick Beetle

Hi Sean,
not sure whether I mentioned this before but when rubbing the paint back on the front of the block just below the distributor recently,
is stamped.... -    I remember seeing this many years ago before it was painted... lol





and next to the drain plug on a BA 021 gearbox is RRRR stamped...

this gearbox has a 4.375 to 1    35T-8T Diff...
but I haven't pulled it apart at all... apart from the plate..

so, My original engine had been worked on... I had it overhauled again when I bought the car in 1995.
and that spare gearbox has at least had a new toque converter seal fitted...
the torque converter seal is a new one - red... and from memory looked different to the 083 and 083B seals..
I wonder if it has a new clutch plate etc???  it came from Queensland...
