SIDE STARTER VW STYLE BELL HOUSING FOR MD TRANS
Weddle Industries has been working to bring a side-mount starter version of the MD bell housing back into production, and the first full batch of these is coming soon.
This long requested option will relocate the starter to where it normally sits on a stock VW transaxle. The more compact packaging gives chassis builders and kit car builders extra room for mounting accessories in the often crowded area at the top of the transaxle.
Note: Some starters may need to be re-clocked (rotated) for proper clearance in the side-mount position. Most aftermarket starters are designed to offer multiple clocking positions and can be rotated easily by removing just one or two bolts and turning the starter to the desired position. Give us a call if you aren’t sure whether your starter is compatible with the side starter bell housing.
