We have the Air Cooled VW Flywheels and Hardware you need to get your VW back on the road again. Whether the starter gear teeth are worn down or chewed off, or the friction surface is toast, let Mid America Motorworks help you get this critical drivetrain component back into good condition. 

Note: Don't forget you will need to torque the "Gland Nut" to 250 ft/lbs (check your shop manual for your specific model), so you may want to consider a "Flywheel Gland Nut Tool" and "Flywheel Lock" to do the job right. See "Related Products" below.
