Without knowing at least the year model,make,s this tuff,but i can only guess that it is a 70,s model bug motor,and the good thing is 1970-1984 are the same,

The bolt pattern is 10o'clock 4o'clock with the solenoid at 12o'clock That is the main problem I am experiencing when matching the 1970 to 1984 starter.
