I wonder if that is what these are from. I have had them for some time now.

That MUST BE what those are!!!

But if there is no IRS trailing arm, I would think that would be VERY weak and flimsy with trouble maintaining camber. Maybe there's an IRS arm that it bolts to along with the spring plate. IRS with RGBs is pretty damned cool!

Thanks both. I'd love to see the complete unit with axles to get an idea of how it worked.

From the description on that website, I didn't think they'd use IRS, as it says that those buses used splitscreen mechanicals. I figured it was an attempt to maintain the correct camber with spring plates.

Looking at those pictures, would the clamps grip a T-piece on the end of the axle that held the UJ (or one of them, if there was one at each end) in contact with the input shaft to the reduction box?

If it were swing axle suspension, there would be no need to invent a different from swingaxle reduction gear box for the end of the axle with a u-joint on the inboard side as swingaxle reduction gear box axles already existed. This MUST be for an IRS suspension and the RGB MUST attach to a trailing arm. There is no other reason for this to exist. The gear box probably was an IRS tunnel case Bug box.

Obviously the generalization that the vehicle was built with split window mechanicals was, like many generalizations, not entirely true.

The shaft almost certainly has the rest of the u-joint not shown in the picture of the reduction box above. And it probably is a shaft with a slip joint built into it. And it very likely has a similar u-joint at the inboard end where it attaches to the output flange of the gear box.

I have a question for the Bug transaxle Gurus. My plan is to use the Rear suspension section, with Transaxle. I want to Make into a Front wheel drive rear wheel steering Reverse trike. I want use a adaptor plate for Warp9 electric Motor to the transaxle and transform it into a Front wheel drive fixed front wheels and a single rear wheel that is steerable. To me it looks like I just need to flip the diff over, I will Not be Flipping the trans as it will stay in it's original mounting orientation, as it will be running it Front wheel drive, I believe just the diff needs to be flipped over? and all is well. With an electric motor it will run in either direction.
Anything I should be aware of on the VW transaxle (I will be Beefing Up the transaxle) running it as a Front wheel drive.

Hello, looked thru all 28 pages and could not find info for thing transaxle. I have read somewhere in all this vast amounts of information that some thing transaxles had LSD diffs.

Trans code ( A 122 6 3 )
The number 1 appears to be upside down.
Thanks Brett

This Vanagon thread should be shared with the off-road forum. It's about significantly beefing up a Syncro transaxle, most of which applies to 091/1 as well.

Hey guys, so I’m looking for some clarification between a 3-rib and 5-rib transmission.
3-rib - CK (1700) type 4 engine
5-rib - CM (1800) type 4 engine

Which would be best to pair with a 1600 type 1 engine?

I’ve also measured the input shafts in both the 3-rib (type 4 engine) and the 5-rib (has been running with a type 1 engine) from the throwout bearing guide tube end to the end of the input shafts. Both measure 2 3/4”. Isn’t the input shaft in an 002 needing to be shorter to be used in a type 1 engine?
