original 2.6 VW engine mountings
I recently bought original VW 2.6 5cyl engine mountings...what a diffeence to the ride and sound/vibrations in the bus!

Quick question for anyone out there with a 2.6/2.5 with original or OE VW mountings.... VW state that the one with a green painted flash on is the right hand side. The plain one is the left as they have differing oil pressures inside due to the engine weight and torque twist leaning to the left. (You even pay a different price for them!) I want to confirm this if anyone with such a bus can look underneath and confirm the green flash on the right hand side (drivers side). (Syncro or more likely on anyones std 2.6 or 2.5 T3.)

I ask as VW's diagram on the computer actually has it reversed but they claim the pic is wrong (back to front) so be nice to confirm.

Syncro, Sailing, Subaru, Scuba Diving, Surf, Sun, South Africa...
