I thought that VW used to sell THREE versions of their universal replacement 
cases, all modeled on the latest 1500/1600 case:

1) bored for 1200 cc cylinders as a replacement for the 40 HP engines.

2) bored for 1500/1600cc and with all the fittings that you needed for type 1 
engines and for type 3 MT engines. 043 101 025 in my microfilm.

3) bored for 1500/1600cc and fit for type 3 AT engines only. 311 101 025L

I could never understand why # 2 & 3 could not have been combined, as you 
suggest, but I wonder if John's question is at the heart of this.
