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.
