I am pretty sure it has a freeway flier transmission in it because it is very high geared. It will be great for my commuting to work and back on the freeway but not the best for wheeling. I will have to take it out on the trails when I get a chance and test it out. If it sucks maybe I will swap transmissions with Ed. I have always said that if Ed's trans goes out I will put in a freeway flier. Maybe I won't have to wait for that to happen. Until next time, try to stay warm.

Replacing a VW Bugs clutch cable and bowden tube.
I put myself in a bind this week. I had planned to get the bug on the road last Saturday but ended up having some set backs. This was one of them. I tried to adjust my clutch cable and the end was so rusted on that it snapped the threaded part off the cable. Here you can see the piece that broke. Monday I made an appointment to get the bug aligned at my favorite alignment shop. They are usually about 2 weeks out for alignments but when I called they wanted to do it Thursday. I put it off until Friday morning. That means I have to get the bug up and running this week so I can drive it down Friday morning so it can be aligned.
