WEDDLE RACING TORSIONAL 300M INPUT SHAFT FOR VW TYPE 2 TRANS, LONG SNOUT (298MM OVERALL LENGTH). NOTE: THE LONG SNOUT INPUT SHAFT IS FOR VEHICLES WITH VW TYPE 4 ENGINES ONLY.
Reduce Shock Loading. Our Weddle Racing input shafts are much more effective at dampening shock loads than the stock VW input shafts, and they work to significantly reduce stresses in the transmission and drivetrain. The diameters and fillets have been carefully designed to maximize torsional twist without sacrificing strength. This can make a huge difference in the longevity of components, especially in high performance applications. Each shaft is manufactured from custom-spec ultra high quality 300M steel, through-hardened, and shot peened to maximize strength and fatigue resistance.
This is a long snout input shaft, designed for vehicles with VW Type 4 engines where the pilot bearing is located in the end of the crankshaft.
Caution: This input shaft should only be used with VW Type 4 engines. The longer snout may bottom out in the crankshaft and cause failure if used with other types of engines.
'72-'79 VW Type 2, '80-'83 Vanagon (Air Cooled), Suitable for vehicles with VW Type 4 engine only
