Scrapyards will probably be your only option. unless someone on here has some parts lying around?

Most people who had the old slant forward motors have removed them unfortunately. You could try contact the guys at VW Heritage parts in the UK, perhaps they have something lying around...

Parts for those are rare now.

Very difficult to get as few have survived this long.

My suggestion is to consider an engine and gearbox swop.

I fully agree, something can only be original once.

Might have to get it made up or repaired. Speak to engineering shops.

Also try gearbox repair places. Somebody might have part lying around still.
