Alright, so on the neverending buggy project I've now gotten myself a ball-joint front end IRS bug chassis, a trans from a '74 bus and a 914 engine.
I bought, from a local guy a bugpack 6538-12IRS Bus Trans Adapter Mount Frontkit, as seen here: http://www.bugpack.com/content.php?id=348
It occured to me after buying it that A) it attaches to bus trans at mid-transmission, not at the front and B) it solidly mounts the trans to the chassis and C) it claims to be for a bugpack buggy chassis. My concerns are (accordingly):
A/B) how much vibration/harshness am I going to have to put up with for welding this to the bug chassis and C) will this fit the bug chassis without too much chopping?
Also, does anyone offer a bus-into-bug transmission mount kit that uses rubber or urethane mounts? I want to know before I weld in this solid mount kit
I found this kit: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VW-Bu...QQcmdZViewItem
but it looks like it is also a solid-mount kit
