Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I would wonder if the best way to do those springs, is to unbolt the bonnet from the hinges, then put the hinges in the closed position before attaching the spring?

Just beware chaps- Type 3 Spectacle looks exactly like Type 25 ones but doesn't fit!, So don't count your chickens until you've checked that the buggers fit your Tinware!

Fuel filter/watery petrol?
Stock filter should be in spare wheel well, but follow the lines & see if some bugger has added another one?

I think Simon Kelley is about to start selling them Broady!

Re: Cooling Flaps return spring.

It's worth mentioning also that you must use the copper bellows type of thermostat, NOT the newer waxstat type, which fails by default in the closed position!
