Shifter Guide Pin
AndyBees
This is a pic of the modified Shift Guide Pin that is used on the 1980-1983 Air-cooled Vanagons as well as the same era of the Vanagon with the Diesel Transmission. The rubber groments work fine, handle grease well and do not distribute vibes up to the gear shift. Look back in my pics for additional photos. There are other views in my gallery. This one shows the screw and washer on the end. I drilled and tapped the guide pin to accept a screw. JB Weld and a washer holds it on the other side. This mod has been in use since August, 2012.

Pic of the modified transmission vent hole. I used a small piece of hose and just allowed it to hang like an Elephant trunk off the side. This assures me that the tranny is not breathing dust, water or puking oil out on top of itself. This has been in service since 2012.

Shifter Guide Pin 4 speed 091
AndyBees
This is a pic of my modified Shifter Guide Pin. This is the shift guide pin located on the bottom edge of the 091 tranny (1980 thru 83 model Air-cool). The pin normally has a slightly flexible plastic that transmits vibes to the shift rod and on up to the gear shift. This mod, two rubber bushings, held in place with washers and JB Weld works great. It's been in service since August, 2012. Grease doesn't affect these bushings.... I have no clue where I got them.

If you upload photos, you should enter a description like this....

Return fuel pipe
AndyBees
This is a pic of the spring that supports the oil pressure sensor which was suspended over the transmission away from the vibes of the diesel engine (TDI). Apparently the sensor lost ground and was grounding through the suspension spring which got hot and melted the return plastic fuel pipe. It had a separate ground lead to it. The spade it plugged onto is not visible in the pic. See other pics for close-up of melted pipe.

Vanagon Flywheels
AndyBees
This is a pic of three different flywheels I've used with the ALH in my Vanagon.
Left is a LUK DMF, center is a G60 (from a 1990s Passat era), and the OE Diesel Flywheel.

If you will look real close, you can see that I had to add the TDC mark on the DMF & G60 flywheels.

The ALH would slip the clutch in the OE flywheel set-up (220 mm).

The DMF & G60 are 228mm.

I highly recommend the DMF as it is extremely quiet.

I also installed a Pilot Shaft that accepts the TDI clutch disc splines. Otherwise, I could have used an OE Vanagon Clutch Disc as both are 228mm.
