OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

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!
