Re: Cyclical binding sensation

Put the car on axle stands at the rear, wheels off (just to reduce weight and rotating mass on the drooping wheel), pads in/out and see what you can hear when the wheels are being driven

2nd / 3rd on tickover should be plenty

Re: Type3 notchback.

I have taken a snap and started to clean it up, having to go pixel by pixel

I think you can see the bits I have done

Is this a viable route broady, or do you have better tools, there's probably 40 minutes work in this so far so don't want to do hours more if it isn't worthwhile

Well done and a belated welcome.

I don't recognise the car so is this all your own work, or one you have purchased ?

Re: '67 Square continued.....

It's funny, you have variable ride height on the rear of your type 3, in a similar way to the front of a torsion bar 911. Both get adjusted with a threaded bolt.

Is that other bolt a camber / toe adjuster ?

Re: Cyclical binding sensation

If all the rollers are round then no play.

If one of the rollers has a flat then there will be play on that axis

That was the theory anyway, I'm not necessarily convinced, but better to mention it for you to consider, here's a link

Re: Cyclical binding sensation

How old are the bearings ?

If roller bearings, is it possible that one of the rollers has developed a flat spot ?

Someone advised me recently that use of molybdenum disulphide grease can cause this (it's too slippery and the roller stays in one place wearing instead of rotating)

Re: New to the club and new to my Type 3 Fastback

I have a type 4, not a type 3, so I don't have any spares for you, sorry.

Many others do, generally tucked away for members who need them, so the best option is to put another post up in the wanted section

That sounds like good news then, a decent skillset and the willingness to tackle the resto yourself, with a determination to get it done. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I assume you have seen these pages and seen how your car measures up in these areas ? http://www.vwtype3and4club.org.uk/BuyersGui...

Don, how much experience do you have - mechanically and bodywork wise. Just a bit of extra information so we have an idea about what work can be DIY, and what you will need to get others to do.

Re: New to the club and new to my Type 3 Fastback

Hmm, that C post looks a bit crusty, but under the bonnet looks good. The rust on the valance near the wing / screen is common and you should pull the carpets out and see what the floorpans are like.

Headlinings are easy to solve, they just cost time & money

Re: New to the club and new to my Type 3 Fastback

I'm not so knowledgeable on type 3's, but it may be fair to say that there are corrosion issues in all places on these cars.

Get some photos up (there's a new feature using attachments, which is what I trialled above) and I'm confident the advice will start to roll in :)

Re: New to the club and new to my Type 3 Fastback

Here's a couple of photos I found for others to see your new ride, until you get some new ones up of your own.

So, it seems there's some corrosion to deal with, how are the mechanicals ?

Nice addition with the sunroof

On mine they are not side by side, or vertical, but diagonal.

Re: Casa de Fye's autos...

That was somewhat fortunate - bad batch from the carb supplier / rebuilder ?

I had a look around for a better view of the Rambler......... interesting, though not unexpected to see some rear fin remnants in the design, and then I noticed the slightly later type 3 does too
