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: 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’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.
