      Not if the pushrod punched all the way through, the clutch wouldn't disengage.



      Thanks :thumbup:

      Agreed.
      12mm spec is including the rubber round buffer the cable sits on. I don't have one handy to measure, but your suggestion equates to 6-9mm of freeplay, which, when you take into account the...

      Was the replacement finger an OE VW finger or a Chinese finger? If it was around $40-$50 it was likely OE VW, less and it would be Chinese.
      Be sure the cable is adjusted with some slack, unless it...

      Both would be fine to try.
      One trans might prefer one type of oil, while another identical code trans might prefer another type.
      Experiment with the oil to see which works best, and stick with it....

      No, it should be 12mm as measured between the aluminum casing (or thin rubber flap) and the bottom of the cable, which INCLUDES the thicker rubber buffer that sits between the 2 points...

      I'm in need of R&P sets for the 5 speed 020 trans.

      Ideally 3.67 ratio sets, but I'll be interested in 3.89, 3.94, and 4.25 if you have one.

      They have to be in good usable shape... no rust, no...

      Sorry, I don't know the first thing about the autos, or what exactly is involved in the swap. There is a sticky thread covering I think, but I don't know if I've even read through it, honestly......

      Possibly, possibly not... the black rings are likely moly coated steel if they are black all over. They're not nearly as common, but I do run across them in some trans, and they do carry the VW/Audo...

      That doesn't look too bad, I'm used to seeing serious tilt with the 020 gears when ran low on oil.
      The axial play may be sorted with a new thrust washer, but it will always have some slop.
      If the...

      Not unless it is preventing the clutch arm on the trans from being pulled up fully. The lack of a rubber buffer on the arm will explain some of your exposed threads in the adjuster though, you are...

      Well... it's not normal for the Subaru or the VW... it's an indicator of a faulty clutch ;)
      Both have a non-synchronized reverse, if the Subaru does... I know the VW does.

      In fact, if it grinds...

      The 020 is the same... the small 5th is splined to the output shaft, the large 5th spins on the plastic needle bearing on the sync hub assembly, which is splined to the input shaft. The 02A/J I think...

      I don't know the 02A/J very well, but if it is a splined connection, it should be press-fit tight. Anything less is not ideal. The ability to tilt is not good. They loosen up with wear and time so...

      50/50 of that happening. Sometimes they're easy and I'm happy, sometimes I'm required to actually use the puller on one or both gears and it slows me down.
      Actually, a little better than 50/50......
