Re: Tranny Rebuild

Being a former bus owner and recovering air-cooled nut, I'll field this
question. The tranny will spin the same way, but the differential is
simply flipped to the other side, reversing the direction of the axles.
This is how Porsche used VW trannies in many of their mid engined cars. 

As for your predicament, for $1500 you could buy a whole parts car with a
good transmission, then sell most of the valuable parts you don't need
then junk it. The whole thing might net out.
