Re: Type 3 twin carb air filter set up

Would assume that its fully closed, and only opens when the temp hits 45c.
It appears to me its either closed or opened, and nothing else.

No other mention of this at all in the manual that I have come across.

Any adjustment is then done by slight movement of the engine mounts.

Re: Type 3 IRS gearbox alignement

Looks like you have to correctly set the toe on each of the rear wheels,

Then check the gearbox centre is midway beteen the cv joint flanges, page 76

Re: Type 3 IRS gearbox alignement

AS its fixed both ends of the gearbox, how could you affect adjustment anyway?

Is there any adjustment at the mounting rubber end?

Re: Regulator

One more quick question. When the harness reaches the A post pillar, does it run further along the floor pan and then rise up to the dash. Or does it rise at the A post then run along the box section under the dash. Its been so long I cant recall, and the pics are mis placed. I do recall at the A po...

Re: Regulator

Its handier for me to have an A3 pic that I dont mind grubby paws on.
I dont want to mess up the manual.

I read somewhere that there was an insulative material all right.

IIRC I think my original sat on the end of the heater channel.

Re: Regulator

I know where it is, but I just wanted to double check whether it was originally surface mounted

on the top of the heater channel, or vertically mounted, or does it really matter?

Wiring diagram is brilliant, thanks. Off to print it on A3 .

Thanks.

Re: Front body mounting bushes.

New bushes arrived today. Not too bad to fit both upper and lower front bushes. Of course had great access from over head with the tank out, and the car up off the deck on 4 no 6 ton high axle stands. So I finally have a body and chassis married back together, at long last. So i can crack on now at ...

Whats the correct Dinitrol product for cavity protection.

The list of Dinitrol products, as well as other products is endless.

Re: Front body mounting bushes.

Problem sorted, as its the top rubber which is in good shape,
its the bottom one thats knackered.

So looks like body can go on then, and fit new lower bushes when I get them .
I,ve ordered them, so we will see how that goes.
But I,ll pop the body down and in place, and wont tighten up at the moment.
