This is an example of our vw bus transaxle adapter and flywheel for putting a watercooled VW motor on an aircooled VW bug or bus transaxle. This is actually becoming a more common configuration for dunebuggys/sandrails since most dunebuggies/sandrails run bus transaxles with adapter plates and considering the boys at VW finally decided to build a 2 liter motor for the newer vehicles. The flywheel uses a bug/bus clutch and pressure plate. I personally use a stock pressure plate with a feramic 4 puck sprung clutch disk. My flywheel/pressureplate/clutch disk is lightened to 1 pound less than stock and works perfectly with my 1.8l. I've been running it in my buggy for the last 8 years and have had ZERO problems!
These can be purchased as a kit which includes vw transaxle adapter, flywheel and the bolts needed to install the parts
OR you can buy the vw transaxle adapter and flywheel separately
