1960-1966 IRS Transaxle 6V 180mm Flywheel Housing Freeway Flyer

Our top quality remanufactured Air Cooled VW Freeway Flyer Transaxles are the best you can buy!

Each unit features:

  • Thoroughly cleaned and inspected outer cases
  • New synchronizer rings, tapered roller and needle bearings
  • Higher Gear Ratio of 3:88 compared to 4:12 or 4:37 Stock
  • Stock Gear Ratio leaves you with 3500 RPM @ 65mph, with a Freeway Flyer Transaxle with 3:88 Gear Ratio you can run at 75mph at the same 3500 RPM
  • Increased Freeway Speeds
  • Replaced or remachined shifting forks, gear assemblies, gear carrier bushings and hub assemblies
  • 1st through 4th gear sliders get remachined to OEM specs.
  • Clutch release cross-shaft, spring retainers and bushings inspected and replaced if necessary
  • All new gaskets and oil seals
  • After assembly, the transaxle is tested for leaks and easy shifting.
  • 12 Month 12,000 Mile Warranty


Tech Note: The freeway flyer transaxles will be slightly noisier in 4th gear due to the different gear ratio. You may also notice a tight shift between 3rd and 4th gear. Both of these should get better after 500 to 1000 miles.
