I used the kit from Roadless Gear. came with adapter plate(for stock samurai tranny), machined samurai flywheel to fit vw crank and a pilot bushing.
The engine is out of an '89 Jetta turbo diesel.
2 holes in the tranny have to be opened up. One ear on the engine block has to be built up with weld. for a new hole. The other side hole has to be pluged, and re-located.
You can use your stock clutch, works fine.
samurai starter can also be used, that's what I did. Turns the engine over no prob.
You need to fabricate your own engine mounts. I integrated the samurai mounts. Time will only tell how good they hold up, so far, so good.
Spring over is a must. Before I did the spring over the oil pan was only 2" above axle.
The oil filter housing will have to be swapped out for one out of a VW Fox since it is angle back, away from frame and engine mount.
Another thing, the VW exhaust is on the passenger side. If you're carefull enough it can be tucked right up in there.
Engine is a lot taller, so a body lift, or hood scoop, Or lower the entire engine and trany. Too much work just to get the hood down. I'm putting a scoop or raised section in mine.
Anything that's not clear I'll try to explain better.
