hi all,just managed to find all the parts i need to irs my 64 split van...just the gearbox to go.
could someone advise me on which is the best box to look out for??
ive got a 1641 with twin 40's.at the mo the van cruises up hill with no problems obviously due to reduction boxes.dont really wanna loose all the power up hills with irs.
what would be the ideal box for me??
ive seen a 1500 beetle irs box ah code for sale fairly cheap,would this do??
much regards..rich

1500 irs box :confused: that don't sound right

1500 should be swing axle

a 1303 box should be what you want - i don't know if the 1303's' had different ratios

well personally i would get a recon box for around 550 as that way you no its going to be good or if you cant stretch to that you at least want to drive it first as you dont want to do all the work to find out its crap
as far as which box the 1500 will be best the half way mark good top end but still pull you up hills
its a night mare getting your head round this stuff though init
