    David, you're not on your own with having plenty of spare parts ....... who knows when something may be needed.
    With the Type3 I had to buy some things and it worked out cheaper to buy double what I needed or in 1 case triple but at least I got hard to get parts and if someone needs them I can offer what's excess :rolleyes:

    Hi Kombi Lovers,
    The spares hut needs to get bigger;). Hopefully going to pick up a spare 6 rib gearbox next Friday with spare clutch (used) & slave cylinder & a starter motor.:D
    Cheers

    Just get a spare Kombi complete, and then put all the other extra spares inside, locked up and weathertight! :)

    Had one of them once. I bought it for $200. Sat around at my mechanics in his yard for years & then he wanted it gone:(. I salvaged lots & then got an interested guy to take it away. I'm still giving away stuff I got from that bus 15 years later;):D.
    If I find another worthy buy I'll take your suggestion as I've got spare outside space here;).
    This is your fault re spare gearboxes:p:rolleyes::D. I love a good plan B & you've set the bar high:cool:.
    Cheers

    Sounds like you’re well on your way with the parts collection. As for me, I’ve kind of built a modest one up without trying. I’ve got a 5 rib gearbox, cane under-dash shelf that doesn’t fit Harry, a bunch of bits and pieces for Elly-May’s type 1 motor, window winders, etc, etc. Just placed two more orders for bits for Harry with a bunch of them being spares :eek:

    Hi Kombi Lovers,
    Todays travels for these bits. 6 rib box, hi torque starter motor, half used clutch, slave cylinder & all the rods & linkages.

    And a cue ball:D for the spares shed. None of which I actually know anything about;) other than the cue ball & that the bits go in a kombi!
    Cheers

    I would have to agree with you Rick. It looks more like it's from a T3 kombi. Would have to see the nose cone?

    I thought about putting a 5 speed box in my t2 and changing the shift linkages to suit (cable setup) but how far do you go.
    I've spent 4 years on my resto and I'm near the finish line and well and truly over it.
    Looking forward to using Blitz for what he was designed, camping.

    Have to agree. Hydraulic clutch slave cylinder mount suggests T3. Need to see the nose cone to confirm 4 or 5 speeder.

    It's a 4 speeder & from an early T3. Is it compatible with mid 70's T2's or adaptable?
    Cheers

    I think what you've got is an 091/1 transmission (as opposed to an 091)
    the shift linkage conversion for a 094 (see link in earlier post) I think (not sure) fits as the mechanisms are similar (that bit sticking out the side of your trany)
