    Hi Barracuda, I saw this conversion a long, long time ago, in a Fiat coupe, and I can't help you with much detail except that special camshafts have to be installed to make the engine run backwards to suit the gearbox. I do know someone who helped to build the car, so I'll try and get more information for you. I know the rear beaver panel had to be modified quite a bit to fit the longer twin cam block in place.

    I'll see what I can find out for you, Karl. I've also heard of using a VW beetle gearbox in the , which means the engine doesn't need to be reversed. I don't know for sure, but I imagine it would be stronger too. Perhaps I can help. They also changed the final drive ratio.. When you install the TC you either have to reverse the rotation of the engine OR use a VW trans axle which turns the other way.. Reversing the rotation means re drilling the pointer holes in the cam wheels after having set them up properly with a degree wheel.

    A Volkswagon starter is used. I believe a block mounted distributor is required. They sold the rights to someone that has since gone out of business. These pieces are almost impossible to come by here in the States I would like to offer some comments.

    Even in the Coupe the rear weight bias was very noticible because of the increased weight. It had lots of power but it would come around quickly. The trans axle is geared so low that the engine revs were very high.

    It is unlikely you would be able to get the deck lid to close because of the height of the TC. The time for a project like this may saddly be past. They are quite strong but may sometimes have a nasty habit to stick 2nd speed on.

    VW engines turn clockwise when viewed from the crank nose, so no modifications to the TC engine is needed in order to change the direction of rotation, as said before. Ville Vieri My Fiat Pages! Getting shot is painful. Getting stabbed in the ribs is painful. VW flywheel is fastened to crankshaft with a few dowels and one large bolt, so I don't think that this wheel can be ever used with the TC engine. I don't know how the VW driveshafts could be used with Fiat CV joints, because here usually the whole VW rear axle is used with the gearbox.

    Of course, the driveshafts may need shortening.
