Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Or.. Fasty had centrelines on when I bought her, so in one of my sheds there's a set of chrome/shiny wheel bolts which could easily find themselves heading in Your direction

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Just double check the wheelbolt size chaps! I'd expect a modern vw to be 17mm, but the Fasty will be 19mm Might avoid you both wasting money on postage! GT beetle wheels had plastic caps on the 19mm bolts though https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GT-wheel-bolt-covers-centre-cap-for-VW-Beetle/371423020618?ha...

Parts sources

I thought it was time for an updated list of spares sources, but I'm reluctant to delete the old thread as there is still good information in there, so rather than Delete, I've unlocked it & We'll allow it to gradually fade into obscurity! It's impossible to categorise parts availability from all of...

For the correct hoses refer to this: http://www.vwtype3and4club.org.uk/partswap.php Heritage sell rear drums, but they are crap when compared to originals- I got new ones from Paruzzi, but they no longer have in stock https://www.paruzzi.com/uk/type-3/rear-axle-differential/rear-axle-rear-brake-drum...

Re: Correct way to fit Windscreen Rubber Insert Trim

Rubber onto glass
trim into rubber (but not joining piece)
Rubber/glass/trim assembly into car
Joining piece goes in last

2 possibilities- It could be that the Choke butterfly is fouling the acc pump jets (Little brass tube as you look down the throat), in which case, pop the top off the carb and reinstall with the butterfly in a horizontal position.
