Great progress man, putting me to shame!

Axles got longer about 67, I put a 1500 gearbox in my car years back and swapped the axles so everything would fit back together the same.

found this on the samba

I think there may even be another size for different models/years etc.

Shit, just remembered a sharn, was at a party about 10 years ago, had the red ragtop there. got talking to this cunt, talked about car/vw's with this guy, said how various engine's are stuck in the back of bugs, subys etc, then I said rotas, and he's starts telling me nah nah mate, not rotas, these gearboxs can't spin fast enough for rotas, I said well I've seen it done and I don't think the gearbox cares how fast its going?( to a point) wouldn't believe anything I said so I agreed to disagree with that dickhead.

is it finished yet?

Gear train itself might be fine but 100% the factory Synchro's and clutch release will not love high RPM shifting. 

 

probably fine if you are not expecting lightning quick gear changes...

Just got home from Greg's- first I did some terrible MiG welding and then helped cover the terrible welding with fibreglass wrap (phew)
