Back here it seems easier to get the transaxle of any longitudinally-engined VW (or Audi) and simply revert its rotation. IIRC it's just one gear that needs to be mounted in the inverted position, like it was done while the Kombi used to be fitted with those hub-gears in the rear-end.

Sounds good. But as of now I'm just trying to get it running. I finally got to the point today to crank the engine over, but only to find a good puddle of oil underneath and zero oil pressure. I'm suspecting I didn't install the oil cooler correctly.

Who knows...


But anyway, even though I still like the VW air-cooled engine somehow, nowadays I'd rather get something water-cooled
