If you have a 65/earlier tranny, the serial numbers are on the chart on this page:

Oh, that's a VW part number, not a serial number. Serial numbers are stamped into the housing, not part of the casting like the number you are talking about is.

The serial number looks something like this:

What about newer ones? Is there a way? Mine is DC and 6 numbers. I am guessing 67 but don't know for sure. It is in a 63 but has a backup light switch, small (12V) starter bushing hole, and 5 lug wheels. The brake shoes are 58-64 though.

A DC is a Type 3 IRS gearbox. What are the 6 digits?

That is 7 digits.
If it were less digits it would be a date code.

Bringing this thread back for another ID question.

I bought what I was told was '67 Beetle tranny. It has no letters in the designator, just numbers. But, the number can't be located on the chart glutamodo posted. Can anyone help?

Casting #113 301 103D
Serial# 9984107

I have the following tranny numbers from my 2 VWs:

1959 Karmann Ghia:

vertical part
27
113 301 103
H
angled part
AB08023

1959 Bug:

vertical part
43
113 301 103
D
angled part
1200996

Tried using the previous link with no success to date either tranny or determine gear ratios.

Any ideas?


Best regards,

Catahoula Lou

I pulled this tranny out of my '67 bus:
40
103.301.103
C
973183

From what I have found, it is a super beetle transaxle. Can anyone help he find out more from the serial number? I'm looking for gear ratios, year, etc.

I just bought a swing axle trans from someone who took it out of their '66 beetle. The serial number is DC 0 307 959. Is this a type 3 swing axle that fits a '66 Beetle?

Has anyone ever figured out the transaxle codes without the letters? I have a spare bug swingaxle which is stamped 1004412.

Same with me, can't find any info on my trans, just purchased.
I know it's from a 1965, it's a 6 volt, but will these numbers tell me the gear ratios?
