Bus Nose Cone 50-59 COMP. EO-211-COMP
Our nose cone COMPLETE KIT allows the use of a tunnel case transmission on a split case transmission bus. Includes modified nose cone (new), hockey stick, cnc adapter, hardware, and horseshoe mount. Rubber mount sold separately #211301297-WW. They are available from Wolfsburg west. If your original is in good shape, it can be re-used, as they generally fit better.
Developed to allow the later transmission to be installed without any modification to the bus at all. No need to hack anything. once installed you will have a completely rubber mounted transmission, as VW had intended it to be. No need to put up with the noise and vibration of a solid mount.
This kit does push transaxle back aprox. 1/4". It will be necessary to adjust your shifter and possibly your rear toe in accordingly.
Here is the link to the part, installed on a '54 Kombi. Please note the production version is nicer looking and the horseshoe bracket is water-jet cut, and powder-coated.
New version of nose cone has the head of the plug cut off for clearance and filler is pinned in place.
