Fit the gear clusters etc - basically all of the internals from a '70 Bug 1500 swing axle gearbox into my '66 1300 case?
The reason I want to do this is that I've just broken a 1500 and the gearbox case is cracked - only found this when I degreased it :(
So plan B is to strip both boxes and transfer the guts from one to the other.
Will I need any special tools? and is it a fairly straightforward job for somebody who's never done it before?

Thanks for any advice.

from what i gather, the only actualy difference between the gearboxes is the diff, so technically you could just fit the 1500 diff to the 1300 box, although i havent tried this and no one has been able to tell me if it will or wont work, its only the final drive ratio thats different(which is because of more teeth on the diff)

Thanks for the replies guys - I'll have a long hard think about it.
