      Ridiculous question time: which side of the flexplate does the thicker spacer go on? It's been a while since I've done an 010 install, and this is on a car that wasn't originally automatic. It's going to suck if I have to keep putting the box on and taking it off in order to get the spacing right...

      ^^^
      Bueller?

      Pulled the axle stubs/90mm flanges from an old Mk1 box, to swap them onto the TNA box. Did it the easy way this time, pulled the diff cover off and popped the c-clips off to pull the whole assembly out. No springs, just flanges bolted to stubs, interesting. I had to order new 90mm flange seals, since the 100mm ones are a different design, and the 90mm manual boxes have a slightly smaller seal...so it won't fit the 010. Two drive axle flange repair kits are on their way to my preferred local VW dealer, from Fort Worth, Texas. I'm thinking the stock of the early 010 90mm flange kits are getting pretty thin, hopefully I don't screw the install up.

      Don't tempt me, lol.

      Spent a bit of time on it tonight, while waiting for the new seals. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to retrofit the early 90mm flanges (non-spring-loaded), since I know you can't in the 85+ 020 manual boxes. Turns out you can, all hail the bean counters at VW! To convert to the 100mm flanges in the automatic, they went to a pressed-steel 'cup'/diff-holder (vs. the cast 90mm one) that had more clearance for the bigger flange, and used the usual green spacer/seal combo as in the 020s (except with a 60mm bore vs. the 020's 58mm.

      They used the same 010 case for as long as they used it in their FWD cars, makes flange choices a LOT more extensive . I'm giving up any sort of diff lock though, since my flanges are the solid ones, but that's ok with me. A properly corner-balanced car will allow the diff to work properly anyway (to a point). Maybe one day I'll convert to the larger flanges to take advantage of the shim kits out there...but it's not likely.

      I'm not so sure about the manual valve body anymore, I've got to start prepping the daily for winter duties, so $500 would be better spent on a new set of hakkas and a tuneup. The throttle valve setup might be difficult to work around though, due to my carb linkage needing more throw than the stock TB. Hmmmm.

      Thinkin' hard about that .

      No progress for the moment, still waiting on the drive flange seals to arrive. Bought myself a nice new Dewalt corded drill though, in order to tap the case for cooler ports. A bit overkill...but it'd be tough to get the box up onto my standing drillpress, lol.

      Starting to get the 'will this stupid thing work' jitters. I hate not knowing if I've put everything together properly, although there are SERIOUSLY no parts to the inside of these boxes. It's like lego. I hate waiting .

      yeah, i mean when some gives you a 5 speed for practically free, you think hard about ditching the automatic.

      Phone call to IPT: "Who told you we could make them fully manual?"



      Transaxle engineering won't answer their phone. WTF is going on with the world today. I've got money burning a hole in my pocket, and nobody wants it.

      How can you tell he's online?

      I'm a very impatient person, so this isn't helping my motivation any. In today's day and age, not having a proper web-sales website, or a non-generic email account, is pretty dumb. I'm almost ready to call off this whole project, since I'm only into it for $60. That's how impatient I am. I have no time to wait for folks who won't answer their phone when it's the only way they make non-local sales.

      Just sent another email.
      If I can't reach them by the end of monday, I'm buying engine management, a 4 puck clutch, and tossing my autobox in the trash. An automatic without a manual valve body is no good to me, since that's what I thought I could get. It's going to be a loooooooooooong weekend .

      lol, yeah, I'm being a douche, I know. I've waited all week to order this stupid thing and now I can't. I'm a bit disappointed. It sucks to think that if I ever have a problem with the vb, that the company would be hard to reach for tech support...since they don't seem to answer their phone. This is the problem with a 'global' marketplace IMO. Do I necessarily feel comfortable spending that much money on something, when I can't reach the company to ask them a question or place my order? Same goes for IPT, if one guy says I can get a full manual vb for $475, and the other guy says "no way", but they can build me a firm-shift version of the stocker for $475...not inspiring confidence in me.

      I'm not a hard core drag racer any more, but a 'stock' automatic still doesn't cut it. If I want firm shifts, I'll delete the accumulator and increase the line pressure a bit, instead of spending $475, and waiting two weeks.

      Found a nice powerpoint that shows how the VB of a torqueflite 727 works, which is a simple 3 spd hydro box like the 010. It's been very informative. I'd like to figure out which are the feed holes for 1-2 and 2-3 shift valves in the 010 valve body transfer plate, I'd like to experiment with enlarging them to firm up the shifts. Wish I had a spare VB .
