Re: Gearbox repairs

They were showing for me when purplepeter made his post.

Copying the image links tries to make me sign into a Google account... nah

The embedded early gold fastback screen cap is still there. I suggest the OP checks the photo folder rights, the photos in the posting guide still seem to work.

Re: Necesito ayuda con mi fastback

Hola Efraín, ¿Qué piezas necesitas? ¿Puedes ver el número de chasis y el año de tu coche en esta página? http://home.clara.net/hallvw/t3engnos.htm Lo siento, mi español es muy malo :) Just asking him which parts he wants and to see if he can identify the year of his car from our chassis number page ...

Re: Posting Photos

Does the A2OC use the Tapatalk plugin. Photos are hosted by Tapatalk rather than on the forum server. I think Tapatalk must get revenues from the app purchase and/or serving ads onto peoples phones.

As you can see I don't use it, I believe it can be difficult to install for some boards too.

Re: Type 3 IRS gearbox alignement

This might be a daft idea, especially as I don't have a type 3... but, using my general rear engine experience If the engine was in position then the location for the gearbox is fixed by the bell housing bolts / input shafts. You then just have to make sure the box runs down the axial line correctly...

... and if weld, grind, weld grind, repeat doesn't work, you can always fall back on chemical metal. I have used it to repair a cylinder head on my compressor.

Re: 1972 fastback. nwe 532k

Petrol ignites / explodes because of the vapours, oxygen and an ignition source. If the tank has been left to allow the fuel to evaporate, then there won't be any vapour.

Why don't you get the MIG out and repair it just like any other bodywork repair.

Re: Diagnostic Plug

Yep, I am thinking about energy required to crank = work required to compress air.

I you were a mod you could just move the topic into another section and then post another wanted ad. O hang on ... :)

Re: Diagnostic Plug

One that particularly interests me is how they monitored compression, I assume that was something to do with the FI set up Yeah, that was quite interesting, though I don't see why it should only be used for FI engines. Can a man of your abilities do the maths / alogorithm to convert battery voltage...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I'm really disappointed for you.

Is this just simply down to the fact that you haven't used an oven ?

You could do with finding something like a boiler room that you could "store" them in for a while

Ah, couple of things to think about

The photos won't be in the original threads, so not as useful
Though hopefully theoretical, there are potential copyright issues with using other peoples photos without getting permission

Re: Flickr photo changes

Grabbing your own photos back where they are the only copy is one thing, having them appear in the forum when the URL has changed is another unless you have a script to grab and store in the forum.

Flickr photo changes

Here we go again, loads of forum pictures about to disappear as 1TB storage changes to 1000 photos, with the excess being deleted At least there's a bit more notice this time than there was with Photobucket and the costs are lower at £40 / year. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/11/free-flickr-acc...
