Mike,

Try:


Pendergrass Tool Specialist
2635 W. Woodland Drive
Anaheim, CA  92801

    714-827-4210
    800-926-1847
Fax 714-827-5339

They carry Assenmacher Specialty Tools and Schley Products, Inc.
for foreign cars including VW.  They will send you catalogs. (Especially
since you are an actual tool buyer and doing transmissions.)


Zelenda Machine & Tools Corp.
66-02 Austin St.
Forest Hills, NY  11374

718-896-2288
Telex 127938

Their VW/Audi Catalog is 300+ pages (5 1/2" x 7 3/4") with black
and white pen and ink type drawings.  Not pretty, but very nice to have.
About $10.

If these two places don't have it, it probably does not exist.

For some good information on shop equipment see Harvey Racing Engine's
Web Page at    http://www.hre.com/

They do drag racing engines, but Jim Harvey has written some good
articles on in shop equipment with the small shop or home mechanic
in mind.


Thanks for recognizing that I am the coolest.

Chris
