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!

OEM VW Rhino Transmission Case, Aluminum ("White Rhino"), 081-301-513-AL
OEM VW Rhino Transmission Case, Aluminum ("White Rhino"), 081-301-513_AL
The OEM VW Rhino is also the only factory case with enough ribbing along the bottom to allow this functional through-bolt. No other location will perform the task of holding the left hand side cover firmly in place during moments of ring gear deflection


 
OEM VW Rhino Transmission Case, Aluminum ("White Rhino"), 081-301-513_AL is the strongest VW Transmission Case available. When building up a strong transmission, this is where you start! The Rhino transmission case is 40% stronger the a standard case, with extra deep webbing and reinforcement cast right in! For a while you could buy both the Magnesium Rhino Case, and the Aluminum "White Rhino" case, but the Magnesium version is NLA. The White Rhino Case is 50% heavier than the magnesium one. While Magnesium has the weight advantage, Aluminum Alloy is the definitive choice for a better yield strength under high stress applications (Racing!).

Case does not come with starter bushings, cross shaft bushing or studs.

This OEM VW Rhino Case comes setup for the "late" T/O bearing and T/O crosshaft bushings, but other than that it's a direct replacement for VW Beetle, Ghia, and Type 3 swing axle transmissions from 1961-69, and VW Bus from 1961-67.

The Rhino Case is THE choice of all the top tranny builders when building hi-performance transmissions for Drag racing, Off Road and Sand Buggies, and even Full Tilt Street Cars. Mid Engine setups will really benefit from the extra webbing cast inside the bell housing, which provides the required additional strength needed when running mid-engine, since the transmission loads are different!
