NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Throw Out Bearing Adapter Collar (Adapter Sleeve), Early Trans to Late Bearing
Throw Out Bearing Adapter Collar (Adapter Sleeve), Early Trans to Late Bearing
Two pictures show the bare uninstalled collar, the other shows it installed in a trans axle.


 
Throw Out Bearing Adapter Collar (Adapter Sleeve), Early Trans to Late Bearing replaces the stock mainshaft seal and lets you use the 1971' T/O shaft and LATE T/O Bearing (and the late pressure plates on your early transmission. AWESOME PRODUCT!

Early VWs (up to 1970 models) used a throw out bearing and shaft that was poorly designed. The bearing and clips were "separate", and tend to cause problems if the shaft wears or moves off-center. 1971 models changed to an improved designed, incorporating a sleeve for the throw out bearing to ride on, the shaft simply moved it out and back. The problem is the late bearing requires a collar (Sleeve) that is bolted to the 1971+ transmission, and the studs are not there on the early transmission.

That is where this product comes in! Remove your stock input shaft seal, and put this adapter sleeve in it's place. You can retain it with a set-screw, or some people use Loctite Sleeve Retainer. Now you can use the 1971+ Throw Out Shaft and Throw Out Bearing, on your early transmission!
