Guys, the Vanagon tranny I have is a four forward speed version found in most gas powered vanagons. It has the Mullendore ( Im not sure I spelled that right) adaptor that allows the use of a late model diesel starter. It does away completely with the Bosch starter shaft bushing that gives so much trouble. The TDI starter is cheaper than the a Bosch rebuilt and gives far less trouble.

I will be selling the trasnmission, the bushkng and TDI starter together.
