He may do better on vwtype3.org as they're at least on the same continent - well most of them, and there are probably more Spanish speakers.

Re: PHOTO CALL FOR NEW CLASSIC CAR TV SHOW

The one they had wasn't perfect, and they felt the car looked better for having a shallower bumper. I don't think it was worthwhile in cost, but why else do some owners replace with the early bumpers, if it's not for looks. At least we didn't get the ugly aluminium bumpers of the 1974 412 models (US...

Re: IRS gearbox tool

I think crunching when changing down is most likely due to worn synchromesh cones. It can help to 'double de-clutch' with a bit of throttle while the pedal is up and the gear is in neutral. It can also be beneficial when synchro is worn to do the same when changing up, but without the throttle blip....

Re: Master Cylinder Bolts

M8 x 22 is what's in the Type 3 Parts Book. I guess with an 8mm flange on the MC plus a B-form lock washer between that and the bulkhead threads, 22 would be correct.

Re: Diagnostic Plug

I took my old Beetle into the dealership for a diagnosis around the time they had the diagnosis system. Obviously they couldn't do the whole job, and reported faults that weren't there (like front toe-in being zero, which was correct for radials). Sadly they did not report the rear linings being dow...

You can find paint codes at http://home.clara.net/hallvw/vwpaint.htm along with reasonable representation of the colours. Peru green is a likely one; deep sea green is much less common.

Re: Timing issues?

Check the distributor cam is not scored; use some grease or Vaseline on the cam (or better still, the special cam grease that was often supplied with Bosch points). If the points have a white plastic heel, look for some with a brown or black heel material. If the screw is not tightening, you may nee...

Re: Case de Fye's autos...

Well, Brian Fye is very USA, up in Oregon, so I wouldn't expect it to be Gaelic. Probably Casa rather than case, though Brian may agree he has a 'case ' of VW-itis. Great guy, lovely family, and was instrumental in setting up the biennial VW Type 3 Invasions in the USA back in 2002.
