  • [Wanted: Parts] Earlybay engine carrier

    Hi everyone,

    I'm on the look out for a engine carrier bar for a 1971 early bay.

    I believe it's called a moustache bar and only fits early bays not later.

    Hope someone can help!

      I'm fairly certain that's a late bay one unfortunately

                  Why do bays have an engine bar and beetles don't

                    The gearbox in an early bay is not supported like a beetle ie. underneath the clutch.
                    The weight of the Engine and the gearbox rests on the moustache bar.
