The following is a list of engines that we adapt to.
Average price is $440 for 200mm VW, $540 for 9” (228mm) VW.
Step 1, one find old cheap bus
Step 2 Buy this adapter
Step 3 figure out how to get motor out of GL SW
Step 4 Get tired of project and leave it half finshed, sell all for loss

What would it entail, other than the obvious EA81 and adaptor.

If we can remove all the emission air pumps and things? I would try, Get rid of Hitachi Carb, if I can find a cheap alternative
Change FLywheel , mate the adapter to trans, Change clutch things, mate the engine to adapter,
probaly have to rig a brace under the engine . Old bed frames , 2x4'es or something.
Now put the radiator some where. Buy 30 feet of pipe and flex radiator hose, Run it to the roof. or in front of the bus. If it is a camper bus maybe hide the radiator in the luggage rack someway Probaly need the electric fuel pump from the SUbie
Its getting expensive. Clutch stuff $100, water hose, fuel line. $50 Adapter $400. Misc stuff I don't know about $100, Old Bus $500? 120 hours of fun and frustration. I need to score a used adapter some way.
Did I miss anything? SC
