This adapter allows you to mount a Bosch 2.0kW high torque starter to your Vanagon transaxle. For stock WBX and diesel motors and Subaru conversions (Note: will not work with Subaru transaxles) The larger displacement and higher compression of the Subaru motor will benefit greatly from a high torque starter.
We recommend the SR0408X Bosch starter for 2WD and the SR0425X for Syncros.
Select 2WD/Syncro Manual or 2WD Automatic at checkout. Sold individually.
On Syncro applications with locker, it will require a 3/4" notch for the diff-lock bracket, and you must use the longer (2.25") type bracket and corresponding locker pin. Sorry, it will not work with the short bracket unless you extend both the bracket and the locker pin.
The manual transmission 2wd adapter will fit 80 thru 91 aircooled and watercooled Vanagons as well as 75 thru 79 T2 bay window buses
The Vanagon automatic transmission adapter also fits will on the older pre-091 transmissions for T1/Beetle and T2/Bus.
