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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Syncro applications with locker using the SR408X starter (we recommend using the SR425N for all Syncros!!!), 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 on the older pre-091 transmissions and air-cooled Beetle and Bus.

Reviewer: daryl Lang from Hadley, PA United States  
Price of junk.  The id of the bore was not concentric with the od chamfered bore .  It was out by .100". Two mounting holes for the stater were out by 0.050" of alignment . I had to grind the chamfered bore and drill out one hole to make it fit

Nicely machines part. Fit perfectly. Necessary to grind some metal off starter but that was expected.
