syncro 50 degree inline 4 qusetions
Good day,

If I was to source a complete 1.8 volksie bus in order to do a conversion on a syncro, what do I need to keep in mind? what I know thus far.

The bellhousing on the volksiebus is the same as the old diesels with the starter up top, problem with that is the syncro fuel tank uses that space, so it would not work.
Overseas there were syncro diesel tanks which made provision for that, but I doubt we will get any here. If a 50degree adapter plate was used would the adapter plate act as a spacer and push the engine more rearwards making the engine not line with the carrier bar for the engine mountings to connect or can it just be forced to fit?
Do you get bell housings made for the 50 degree engine with the starter still in the original position?
