Re: Diagnostic Plug

Are you planning on making your own diagnostic computer :)

A couple of guys are using arduino to create GPS based trip computers for the T25's

Good attention to detail Broady.

Did anybody ever actively use the diagnostic socket :)

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

Nothing really to report, ive understood a lot more about the paint and have got this finish now.
Nothing much to report eh :)

Are you going to share the knowledge on the paint as the finish looks good to me :thumbsup:

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...

My 412 has a never tightened earth strap on the battery. Almost as quick as a battery cut off.

Re: Fuel Breather Pipe issue

No need to change the fuel hose yearly if it's the right stuff to begin with, buy on reputation, not specification. ('cos depending where you buy it, it might not be what someone says it is) eg https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/brickwerks-blog/fuel-hose-information-and-reassurances/ Their stuff is good f...

Re: Eberspacher

:( I didn't intend to put you off. Have a read of the troubleshooting section, it'll explain how it works. Essentially, you need the fuel pump to work, the fan to spin, the spark plug to spark and all the safety gubbins not to interfere. I haven't got the one in my 412LS working yet, though it is a ...

Re: Eberspacher

You might find a user manual handy https://www.type4.org/manuals/ba4/index.html Have a fire extinguisher handy, just in case the fuel pump or hoses leak. It would be a good idea to replace the fuel hose as well. Brickwerks have the proper stuff that handles ethanol in fuels, check what size you need...

Re: Timing issues?

Points closing sounds like the securing screw is not gripping and it gradually closes with engine rotation. There should be one or two thin washers in there I believe.

As to setting points, one of the things I still do imperial for: 15 thou which is just a smidge over 0.4mm

Re: New radio in my car

No problem, just remember, that's what was fitted in my car, certainly never changed since '91 so I'm just assuming original fitment.
