No idea what kit that one is.
Starter motor would stay on your VW gearbox but I'm not sure about using the standard input shaft Can't see how it would still be long enough to fit into the crank bearing.
Most adaptorplate kits I've seen for Fords use release bearing spacer, ford starter and an extended input shaft.

How easy is it to replace the input shaft?

Cheers chaps
Turboing a none turbo engine is too costly for me tbh.. I wanted an already turbo'd motor.
Pinto I suppose is the next best thing..

But that unknown kit above still needs an extended input shaft? I asked the chap again and he said no, it should just bolt up to the gearbox.. But bare in mind he hasn't fitte it to the project he was doing

Mine uses the standard input shaft and a T25 Clutch Plate so sounds feasible to me.

Mine also uses the ford Starter which is a bonus.

I do have a spigot bearing that holds the shaft in the engine so to speak.



So I've got

Ford Flywheel
Ford Pressure Plate
VW Clutch

Did you try calling famous Phil for his kit in the for sale section? Personally I'd rather go with that set up and use the Ford starter.

Yes, that's the other kit option rather than using an extended input shaft Wink

I've got a spare, complete Ford adaptor kit that I might sell so I'll try and get a picture for you today. Think it's a G B Engineering one
