Same as the ones I put in about 1500 kms ago. Not sure about the postfix 'AD' though. There seem to be many 034 109 309 types. But pretty sure they all have the same dimensions.
Mine weigh almost nothing - much lighter valvetrain.
Inspected them after 1500 kms and all good.

Keep in mind the condition of your cams when changing tappets. If the lobes are not too good then the tappets can die very quickly.
Usually good practice to change cams with tappets so they 'mate' together.
(20 mins break in at 2500 rpm with assembly paste. Do not let it idle during this process.
It's a make or break 20 mins.)

Hi,

Most of the 145/146 8V boxer internal engine parts will wit without issue in your engine.
Some exceptions: oil pump, rear engine cover, pistons & rings
(145/146 8v models fitted only with 80 and 84 mm dished pistons),
and the camshaft housing rear (triangular) cover plates & their sealing.

INA 034109309 will fit also. If you're unsure bring an old tappet to the parts dealer
(unless the parts came from a webshop) and compare the old one to the new ones.

Theoretically INA is made in Germany, while IMC is made in USA, but both might
manufactured in China :)
Of course i can't prove it, so don't belive me...

My INA tappets, although German, are made in Brazil as they have a massive VW presence there manufacturing most car models for the S.American market.


If you can get original German ones all the better. (they did have German ones here but they were about 50 USD each!!!!!!!!!!!!!:wow:)
