40hp pan dimensions
1303Steve - September 16th, 2021 at 10:45 AM


Does anybody have a 40hp chassis around that I can get a measurement on. My Skinned Knuckles rear air bag set-up uses the a cast hole in the 40hp shock tower as a mounting reference point. The oval shock tower different you see how it mounts in this video

I was in a hurry to post. To be more specific I need to get a measurement from the body mounting tab just above the hole in the shock mount

Hi Steve

Would the measurements from a 1968 Swingaxle Beetle work for you? If so, what part of the body mounting tab and measurement to where? Maybe we could facetime? If so send me a PM with your mob number

Thanks for the offer but body to shock tower location is different on a later pan.

I've attached a photo of the dimension that I need

Body attachment point to centre of the cast hole in shock tower and the offset between he body attachment bolt hole to the centre of the cast hole
