091/094/HV1 1ST-2ND SLIDER HUB, MODIFIED FOR POSITIVE LOCKING SYSTEM (USE WITH HV1-400 AND HV1-900)
High performance replacement. This slider hub is part of the Weddle High Performance Pinion Bearing Retainer Assembly for VW 091/094 transaxles. The Weddle Retaining Assembly consists of a modified 1-2 slider hub, first gear bearing race, and a heavy duty retaining nut.
This upgrade solves a critical problem with the standard VW assembly. The original 1st gear bearing race/nut is a single piece, held in place by the 1-2 slider hub that presses down on top of it. With heat cycles and wear, the nut can back off causing loss of preload on the pinion bearing. This results in premature wear in the transaxle.
How it works. The Weddle Retainer Assembly solves this issue by incorporating an improved mechanical lock between the retaining nut and the 1-2 hub. The heavy duty nut is fitted with 2 pins that fit in two slots on the 1-2 hub. If the nut tries to back off, the pins hit the edges of the slots, preventing the nut from moving any further. The assembly stays in position, retaining pinion bearing preload as it should.
Note: Slider hub, retaining nut, and 1st gear bearing race are sold separately.
