Is there anything to support the top of the gear/oil pump shaft from deflecting?

Steve.

The oil pump shaft has one of the gears as part of it and it is a very close tolerance machined fit where it runs through the oil pump case.  There is another oil pump shaft bushing that it pressure oiled near the top of the shaft.

Can you add a 12 v electric pump to replace the mechanical one?

If the oil pickup is stock diesel vanagon then I am familiar with it.  Is the dipstick the stock diesel vanagon one as well? 

I believe that the windage tray is beneficial in the Vanagon.  I have fit them to several TD/TDI Vanagon conversions.

Is the boost part just a standard nylon line type fitting?  1/8 inch or about that?  Picture of rear of gauge would let us know. 
 
Can't imagine you would have an electric part to that part of the gauge when it is so direct to measure PSI otherwise.  But then it very well might be something I have not seen before.

If you are referring to that lower plug that is about 17mm hex head, the issue I know about is that it is generally way tighter than spec.  Like double or more.  No one wants leaks.

MK2 Golf/Jetta and Audi 5k / Cracking AWY Transmission Filler Hole??

Just curious???

Having read the warnings regarding cracking the glow plug bosses, I'm wondering if there have been any history of cracking the filler hole in the AWY tranny case?? Spec says 18 ft-Lb, but when I get it snug by feel I'm below 18.??? Has this ever been an issue?

Comments??

Somebody on the samba sent me the contact of a seller that he had recently purchased an AAZ engine from. He had an extra rebuilt head and was trying to sell it as he is moving and clearing out parts. The head looks practically new with all new valvetrain components and fresh machined surfaces. He even through in a Corrado valve cover that he had adapted plus some gaskets and new head bolts.

Surge lock is whats the parts catalog calls the baffle/gasket combo like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Oil-Pan-Baffle-Gasket-037-115-220B/282088876630?hash=item41adceaa56:g:lFgAAOSwBjdZ5koA

Mine didn't have one, only a gasket,  but it is called out for an AAZ. I am unsure of the splash implications in this orientation. It seemed find without the baffle so I may just keep it gasket only unless someone thinks it'll be beneficial.

Yes its in a Vanagon.

In regards to capacity, I'll get a picture of the oil pickup and dipstick when I remove the pan again.
