So the motor that came with the green Bug has a peculiar "part" of the case missing!?! At first I though it "broke off" in the rear end collission but under closer look, it seems like the case was cast this way!?!?! :???:



First, here's a case as I've seen hundreds!

Now look at this one...

The serial number on it starts with a "U", which according to the archives in thedrambadotcom's production info means it came originally in a fuel infected type 3. The obvious question here is "what could possibly be the need for this particular access opening?" :-k

The case is slotted there so you can get to the torque convertor bolts on an automatic trans.


That was my guess too, but the old (1974) VW Bentley manual shows an access port on the auto stick transaxle case for that. :?

Not autostick, type 3 full auto.
