Hello site, Any one using VW power, and building their own motors? I'm looking for a better way to build-up the pulley side (of motor Case) thrust bearing area. I know about the machining part of it, is there a better bearing on the market. Is there a stronger setup? I'm open to all answers or suggestions. This is the weak area of VW power, great motor. Great plains cases and cranks are to costly (total cost: Over $700.00), they are great, a good friend has the cases, but can't afford the crank yet! So, I'm looking for another solution to this problem. Thanks in advance. Blue skies to all. Skip

VW engine crank stress

I understand the best thing to relieve stress on the crank is
to put on a gearbox. Sorry, I don't have names or sources.
They don't weigh a whole lot or cost too much either and
are well worth the cost to everybody I've talked to about it.
