VW REDUCTION DRIVE NEEDED

Postby KNUCKLEBUSTER » Sun Aug 23, 2009 2:15 am

I am helping my buddy rebuild a Combee Tomcat, and would like to use a 1500 VW engine with REDUCTION DRIVE. So far I have not found any used REDUCTION DRIVES available, and a new one is not in his budget. Any suggestions of where to look are appreciated.

Thanks, Dave

I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

Try this link. You probably will want to select "South" in order to find one fairly close.

Compromise is failure on the installment plan.

I have three reductions that mount on the flywheel side of the engine, currently they are not for sale. Don at arrowprop.com has two of the same drive units and his are for sale. I have a couple of units that go on the pulley side of the engine. I will sell these two after I get back from a trip I am taking. I will be gone for the month of september. The two for the pulley side will be fairly inexpensive but I make no warranty or guarantee in any way shape form or fashion, it is your engine you decide. But if you want cheap that they will be ... and this is not directed towards anyone person or group of people so nobody get their panties in a wad.
