research we found out that for 72-79 buses there are two different front
transmission mounts. One for the 002 gearbox and one for the 091. The
difference is that the forks from the 002 mount
are slightly longer and have a different bend, compared to the 091 ones.
You can use
a 091 mount on a 002 transmission, but you will notice that the forks will only
be half in the bracket on the chassis. This is quite easy to explain as the 002
transmission is slightly shorter than the later 091. 091 and 002
transmissions are easily recognizable by the VW
numbers on the transmission case that starts
with either 002 or 091.
is that Volkswagen uses
the same part number for both mounts, they just
superseded the 002 mount for the shorter 091 one.
we bring back the correct 002 mount, so you can mount your transmission just
like VW used to do from the factory. This 002
mount will not fit the 091 as the bend will interfere with the bracket and
