Ray & Danny.......Again ! The wealth of knowledge rear's it's head on this site. I wasn't aware of the potential issue of lube starvation on acceleration if the engine was reversed such as when it's installed in a Speedster. Thank you both for your input !
Now I'm reassured that I need not have to think about transaxle reinforcement like I did with the VW unit. Over the years I have learned something about myself. I absolutely hate doing car repairs. Repair of a blown gear box is boring as hell ! Original overhauls are fine. However, modifying/improving and fabrication are my passion ! Everyone has a creative vein in them and this is mine. To me, nothing excites me more than creating something in my mind and bringing it to reality. Not everything I do is a success. Many of my little projects end up in the trash can or over the wall into the hedge if it was particularly ugly. Sometimes I think I should do more private posts on here to get my questions answered and not waste others time but then, for me, I enjoy and value articles of info others post here. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to give me their opinion or suggestions.............Bruce
