Slippery slope though, you may want to do some maintenance items on the donor engine while it is exposed!
My dad's friend has a lift and said I can use it, what maintenance items do you recommend?

I would think about a clutch and rear main seal. Any thing else that may be leaking oil, I would do too. Just anything that is hard to reach.

You could skip the clutch, but may regret it later. Up to you, you could also just run it!

I'm thinking of getting a replacement and then just running the current setup till catostrophic meltdown occurs. Just kinda blows though cause I didn't notice any of this when looking at the car and the people that owned it I think they knew stuff was majorly wrong. Whatever though at least I have my Beetle to drive till I do something about this...
