Re: ive been busted....secrets out

It's never easy hiding things from the wife. I'm glad Goldies going to a good home, unfortunately I couldn't justify keeping another car with all the space issues at the moment. Still the bugs safe for now

Re: Type 4 exhaust stud length

All exhaust studs out bar 2. Had to weld most of the exhaust studs out. I've got 2 stubborn ones that are getting shorter with every sheared off welded on nut, POO. Yup studs I got were too short, but will do for type 1 motors. One of my studs is over sized just to add a little more joy to my life, ...

Type 4 exhaust stud length

High folks, Does anyone know the length of the exhaust studs on the type 4 1.8. Id imagine they should all be the same on the 4's. Mine were all rotten and miss matched, had to weld a few out also. I picked up some M8 X 45 but have a feeling they should be nearer 56 long. Also where can you get thes...

Automatic to manual conversion

I'm having problems getting a drive plate for the 412, so was wondering what was involved in converting into a manual stick shift. I know of two donar cars 411's so parts should be no problem. Is it big and hard, no pun intended :lol: to change over
Cheers
Jim

Here's a front picture of the 412. Spoke to stu412le and he recons that's the cars been floating around the RAF car club for years going between servicemen as they've been posted' it's been passed on.

Hi Dave, It's been repainted at some point by a short person, judging by the overspray join line along the centre of the roof :lol: Most of the polishing took it past the overspray and back to original coat, still can't figure out how to post pics

New to type 4

Hi guys i'm new to the 412 scene. I've always had camper vans, so was intrigued when I saw stu412le selling his 412le. It's a thing that had never crosssed my mind, but for some reason I had to have a look. The more I looked the more I liked, so I bought it, with no engine. So if any of you guys hav...
