Re: 69 Fastback Copper Brake Pipe Size

3/16 is the correct size. They were originally steal pipes, though for standard brakes a copper replacement is much better. I coat mine with grease every year to prevent corrosion

Re: 1972 fastback. nwe 532k

I don't know about the clearance on the underside of the tank, something makes me think the beetle tank is deeper. The type 3 tank is also flat on top to give a nice boot space, I seem to recall beetle tanks have a hump at the back. I would get your tank repaired, best bet is leave it try for a week...

Re: 1967 Fastback SA Import

you can tweek a couple more degrees if you wanted, 009 is timed at full advance of 30 degrees. Might just take away that low rpm hesitation. Well, i may yet loose a tenner, those two jets are in the region of what id fit! They have been changed from the standard fit Does it tell you what the air cor...

Re: 1967 Fastback SA Import

If its what you want its what you want :P Beam wise, I assume your aware you will have a bit of cutting and welding to do to revert back to a type 3 beam (if that's what you end up doing) I often see air filters pop up on ebay between £10 and £50 so you shouldnt struggle, what webers are on it? If i...

Such is my way, lets jump about between jobs. Dug out the rubber grommets to feed the loom through the engine bay and through under the rear seat. I cleaned them up installed them and fed the loom through. Following this I was going to complete the routing in the bay. It was at this point it was bro...

These aren't mine, but as its a lot I figure the shipping from the USA might be worth it, given the experience ive had shipping stuff over Id expect for around 200 doll hairs all in you could get this lot to the UK

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I visited an old VW dealership in the middle of Wales this week, they had a diagnostic machine at the back of the workshop. The chap there said it hadn't been used for 30 years, and looking at the layer of dust on it he was probably right. Do you happen to have a contact number? Would they be willi...

Re: 1972 fastback. nwe 532k

You are right, those paint fumes wouldn't take much ignition once they are nicely atomised!

This is the sort of thing ive used, it has a pan function so it sweeps back and forth across a panel for uniformish heating.

Good attention to detail Broady.

Did anybody ever actively use the diagnostic socket :)
Pointless attention to detail is what got me where I am today!

I hope someone did, I expect VW did at a few product launches at the very least
