Re: 66 Fastback....

Looks great Rich, fantastic to see it's being used regularly and that you're thrashing the nuts off it.

See you soon.

Re: Stonor Park VW Meeting 4 June 2017

Do we need passes in advance for this one, or just turn up and go to the club area?

Re: calling anyone with a fastback that uses a car cover

Halfords heavy duty 'large' size fits my squareback nicely.

Does the job great.

Re: American Import??? help!!

But on the plus side import duty these days is only 5%. As long as you prove the car is old and original and you vouch to keep it that way or improve it.

Thoroughly recommend Kingstown shipping. They have done a good job for me and several people I know.

I'll tell the new owner, it's around a 5 and a half hour drive I'd say from his location, so doable :)

Off to California

Just thought I'd update here about my 64 Notchback, which I sold recently, as it is a well known car here. I advertised on The Samba and was overwhelmed with enquires from the States, mainly California, and that is where it now resides! Although I was sorry to see a very rare UK car leave these shor...

Dual cylinder master cylinder

I seem to a have a sticking problem with the cylinder on my 72 square.

Is my research correct in that there are no new RHD dual masters available? Is it worth trying to use a re-build kit, and if not, how hard are the pipe mods to fit a LHD one?

Cheers,

James.

Re: '67 Square

Aha, answered my own question I think. I've looked back at old pics in the thread and unless you've changed them the tyres on the steels were 165/65/15.

Sorted.

Re: '67 Square

Boring tyre question alert - can I ask what tyres you're running on those stock steels, and how many splines front / rear it's lowered?

Cheers,

Re: 4 stud to 5/130 brake drums on a 1968 Squareback

Just take off the drums and go to a local machine shop, they should be able to tackle it no problem.

Shouldn't cost much either. It's been a few years since I've done so, but was not a problem. Straightforward machining stuff.

Re: Oil cooler queries

Thanks Mike.

Any experience on the foam on top issue?

Do you just clean and lube the relief valves once apart?

Oil cooler queries

I have searched, but can't answer all my questions, so hope I can gather some more info please. Car is a late square - a 72 RHD low miles, believed to be original engine (number is correct age, mid 72 anyway). Car is unknown to me, no engine history, and it came with a big oil cooler leak, so first ...
