    Default Engine adapter needed

    Hello


    I am looking for an engine adapter to couple a vw 1.8 MK1 8v watercooled engine to an upside down vw type 1 transmission.


    Its similar to a racing engine adapter of a Super vee car that couples the vw engine to an early hewland gearbox.


    The engine should be tilted cause is carburated.

    VW made an adaptor to convert the air cooled cars to water cooled when the change the Super Vee rules. That adapter inverted the transmission. The engine was vertical and the induction system was horizontal.

    I may still have a drawing of that adapter. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    Default Engine/gearbox adapter

    I have made a run of Ralt RT5 SV adapters if that would work for you?
