After a recent type2.com thread that covered some repair steps for our 1974 Automatic VW Westy, it became clear that people were having a hard time sourcing out rebuild over overhaul kits. But, my wife ran across these while searching for a gasket and torque converter seal (yes, she does that for me :) Since I’ve had a few requests for where to buy them, I thought I would share. This is for the first generation VW automatic transmission, also known as the 003 or 3-rib tranny. I believe the second generation auto tranny was used into the 90′s across many models and is easier to find parts for. Macko Distributing is where the kit was found, and they have several levels of the kit, based on what you need. We picked up a couple of the master kits and I believe they have some of these still in the stock. You can find the kit page HERE.
