Re: Steering on low ffasty

When I had my beam removed/converted, the chap told me the beam created 18 degrees of bumper steer on full drop.

That’s quite a figure.

Needless to say drives much better now.

Re: External oil cooler location

That cooler is massive!

The one previously had fitted was attached to the rear beam with a bracket and duct. Was 1/4 size of that though.

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I’m not one for paint, my mate who is told me I should use washing up liquid in the bucket when flatting off. I’m unsure but a mop would help and then a DA sander for the a reel nice finish. Did I mention I’m not one for paint?!?

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: 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.
