    Yes.......and no.

    If you are building more than one it sure is nice.

    It is nice to be able to fixture up and measure a few things and know what shims to put in it to start with.

    You can assemble and measure what you got.....disassemble......shim.....assemble.......m easure.....disassemble........shim......assemble.

    A real pain, but if you only have one to do......

    Then adjusting the shifter forks you can do with a make shift jig. Cut the side out of an old trans case.

    This hacked case has not been used in a long time.

    It will need some cleaning before use.

    Still have not gotten the money to buy a few more parts.

    Had announced it done to the wife.....now I need more money......she is not too happy.....lol.

    I have scrounged up the hub that is going back in it.

    And it looks like I have enough left over gaskets.

    I am sleeving the shaft and boring the case to put double stack of oil seals on the input shaft.

    That is the part that always got me in life, not having the extra money to get what was needed. I just used what I had and had to make the best of it.

    It would be so awesome to have a shop to do what is needed in. I do enjoy reading your words and seeing your work, also I just want to be in your shop, LOL Have a great day and hope all does work out in your favor.

    Default input shaft?

    oil getting into the clutch? on 4 spd muncieS was told to leave tranny oil level slightly low. Maybe vw with unique layout and differential included makes for more oil slinging?

    No.

    The clutch is not there.

    The trans is upside down. That means the input shaft is below oil level.

    It is difficult to keep an oil seal working there.

    Now, I understand the need for two seals with a good case bore and input shaft finish Looks like the leaks will be a thing of the past! Imagine it would be a very expensive repair if taken to a shop. It's a good thing you can do the tear down, machining and reassembly yourself.
