Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Not a photogenic update, but more blocking and sanding along with some fibre glassing. A little repair to the inside of the filler in the wing, the mount for the release mechanism has pulled through, so ive filled it all in with fibre glass and resin then filed out the holes. https://jvjnuw.am.files...

Re: Which threads?

you'll need both, one end is LH the other is RH. Thus means that by simply rotating the track rod you can lengthen or shorten it with out having to pop the ends out of the sockets

Re: fan shroud

The fan is the same on them all. the 26mm bit is the problem. I cant for the life of me remember how I solved it. The engine is in storage at the minute. I will have a look at it at the weekend. As long as you can get the fan housing to sit flush so that the fan doesn't catch and the thermostat link...

Re: fan shroud

They are probably not helpful, but im going to grind the bolt back. i did fit a new oil pump, which needed longer bolts... It all become clear, you have fitted an oil pump with a thicker mounting flange. Two different pumps were offered, gears were 21mm and the other ones were 26mm gear. So the pum...

Re: fan shroud

Yours doesnt need to be as oily or corroded as this, but this is how the oil pump engine bar and fan housing need to fit. If you arent getting hte fan housing flush then you wont be getting the fan on as it will just rub on the housing. https://wztnzg.am.files.1drv.com/y4mnLg8t782fmtdipDmtOPbV5oRouR...

Re: Wayward steering

The most likely course is that you need a 4 wheel alignment. I cant see how the box or the damper would pull you in one direction but not the other. The steering boxes wear and you end up with a vague feeling and needing a lot of steering wheel movement to get your wheels turning, the damper is ther...
