    V6 Recomendations

    I currently have 2332cc Vdub in a mid travel Chenowth 4-seater that seems difficult (for me) to keep tuned. I have been thinking about going with an aluminum V6. I have an 091 bus trans and understand I'll need an adapter. Not really looking for max power, max reliability and a reasonable budget are more important. What should I look for? Thanks for any suggestions.

    091 transaxle noise

    Actually not yet, but I've been doing other things (installing electric power steering). I will definitely post when the trans is fixed. Thanks for asking.
  3. Just got a universal 400W power steering kit for my Chenowth sand rail. SuperATV recommended I go with the 400W unit versus the 220W, because of my larger tires and extra weight, compared to a side by side. I have a Saco rack and pinion, but my steering is still a little heavy and can make my shoulders sore. I hope to have it all installed next week. Can't wait to see how it works. Anybody have any thoughts or things to watch out for?

    091 transaxle noise

    Last weekend I had my car out for the first time. After an hour or so of blast around in the desert, my car started making a clicking sound only in 1st gear and only when the clutch is out. When I push in the clutch, the noise seems to goes away. I know it "doesn't" do it in 2nd gear, but I shut it down right away when I heard the noise and didn't get into 3rd or 4th. Could it be something to do with the throw-out bearing or is it something wrong deeper in the trans? My clutch actuation is hydraulic and the pedal feels normal. BTW, I have an 091 bus trans with a 2332cc VW. Thanks for any help.

    Front wheels

    My car does not have front brakes however the front wheels are mounted to stock drums. My question is, can I chuck the drums up in a lathe and cut the outer drum off? Will I have enough strength to safely keep front wheels on? You can kind of see the current set up in this picture Thanks for any input, Ron
