Re: Brake Problem

excuse my ignorance Kai, what does the mixed .6 and .7s mean? Regards Graham Not ignorance, I’m spouting irrelevant information. My vehicle uses stand alone master cylinder unlike the dual set up of production vehicles. Without starting on hydraulic setups theory, when I fitted a smaller master cyl...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

That square bung, had a few of those in the past. I enlarged the hole on my dash to fit a mk1 golf rear heated window switch. Then about 2 months later at the volksworld show in the auto jumble was the correct (looked correct to me) rectangular heated rear window switch. Not as expensive as your 356...

Re: Brake Problem

Interesting thread chaps. It’s like a “who done it?” But more of a what is it??? My money is on the master cylinder. Might I suggest transferring the rear line onto the front port of the master cylinder. Could be a iffy rear port of the master cylinder. In my experience soft pedal is due to not enou...

Re: VDO oil pressure sender

Can you not rotate the adaptor 180 degrees?

Remove the adaptor and go straight in?

Fit your new switch in the place the type 1 pressure switch is located? Not sure you can do this. It’s been a while since I’ve had an air cooled motor.

Re: Vw Type 3 Performance brakes

Look at my thread if you want some 5 stud ideas.

For 4 stud you could looks at the transport t25 world and modify you front disc into a hub and slide a blank/redrilled disc over it.

Re: VDO oil pressure sender

You can buy remote mount pipes. It’s just a braided bit of hose with the right connectors.

Is that switch for oil pressure/temperature? Are you going to retain you original pressure switch?

Re: Fuel cap help

I already have replaced the J tube. I have also replaced the fuel cap surround rubber seal between the wing and fill tube which is already perishing 😳. I received my new ( to me ) licking fuel cap. First thoughts it appears too big and rubs against the seal between the wing and filler tube....... wh...

Re: Fuel cap help

I’ve always thought they where metal caps. That looks plastic? Not that I mind. I’m half way through tank number two this week already. Have done maybe 300 miles though. Can always get a whiff of fuel when turning to the right.

Re: After some parts for my 65 notch

Notch ones are unique. But you can still use a fastback or square one anyway. Just won’t have the clip to hold it up out the way.

Think the thread is ok. I counted a pitch every 5mm same as yours.

Guess it must be aftermarket crap. Want to sell your one??? 😁

Re: Fuel cap help

Im curious, mines only 30mm from the seal. However it has a clicky anti tightening system internal of the cap I’m thinking it’s binding now and the clicky bit is preventing it from winding down further. There is a good 10mm between the seal and the top of the filler tube.

Hmmm..... I know at some point I had all these parts. I have defiantly got a pedal set in the garage. May have a dash pad there too but I think I chucked it out a whilst ago.
