Hi all !!

Does anyone have drawing / plans for building adapter and coupler for VW aircooled engines with clutch/flywheel?

If anyone has detailed drawings of the transaxle (bellhousing) I would apprechiate this as well.

I live in Norway, and shipping & import tax are threatening the survival of my VW EV project :mad::mad::mad:- so I plan on making all the parts I can myself.

When I get the adapter /coupler done I'll post the results:p

It took a long time, but I bought and setup a lathe/mill and taught myself to use it, I bought a welder and taught myself to weld, and I made my own ring roller. I think I could rebuild the adapter in a weekend now.

You can see a couple pics of it installed on this page:

I have a bunch of pics of it getting machined and welded that I haven't posted yet -- I'll post a link to that here and on EVDL when I do that.

I gave it a test by jacking up the back of the car against the adapter -- I figure if it wasn't up to that it wasn't strong enough to resist the ~2000 lbs of force it needs to resist (don't forget the gears multiple the torque, and for my rear engined car the motor/tranny combo fights the torque of the rear axles).
Thanks David !

Looks like you had a few hours of metalwork.....

Do you have pictures of the finished product?
