Aircooled VW Rear Gearbox, Transmission, Cradle, T1, T2, T3
The gearbox cradle has long been a part difficult to get hold of, difficult to fit and never really had any useful features in terms of function other than holding the transaxle in place. Our latest development has changed all that, with a now adjustable raise cradle system.
So the reason gearbox people consider raising their gearbox is predominately down to swing axle configurations and resolving camber. When you lift the transmission the amount of camber will be reduced meaning longer life to the fulcrum plates and less oil starvation to the axle bearings, not to mention reducing tyre wear and increasing road contact.
With this being said depending on the style of the car a different degree of raise may be required. This cradle is totally unique in its design giving you in one product the ability to run the engine at stock height, 0.5” raise and 1” raise, the system is simple to adjust on the fly requiring only a jack, 13mm spanner’s and your respective gearbox main bolt (usually 27mm).
Not only does the cradle offer this but also cures another common issue of cross-threading when re-fitting the main gearbox bolt. So now offers a variance of 7.5mm in lateral difference to cure this issue.
Lastly, the new adjust-a-raise cradle utilizes generic style size and fits rubber mounts meaning they are simple and cheap to replace and maintain. This cradle is suitable for all T1 and T3 models 1950-79 and T2 Split Screen models All Years.
