Re: A sincere congradulations to all my European cousins...

Much the same to the both of you gents! Your knowledge and patients far out weigh my own. I dont envy the other nations with thier strict road worthiness laws. Our relaxed even further last year with the MOT excemption now being a rolling 40 years. Much like the road tax relief. I way well come knoc...

Thank you for that mate appreciated. I've also got a splitscreen but haven't used it in over 5 years as I prefer our t4. I know most people would think this crazy but being 35 I'm just more used to the tight steering and slightly more modern feeling.
I'm 31 ;)

Jolly nice day out, great to see some many type 3's! I didnt spend as much time with the club as I should. But shall we say I was a little over excited to not be in the garage :D

In the closed position the spring is a full extension. Which would make it even harder to do.

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Wow, strong spring if the ratchet could not be used to extend it. The strap I used didnt have hooks on the ends so it was looped around. So obviously the tighter it got the more resistance there was to the strap sliding around at each end too in addition to stretching the spring. A straight forward...

Re: brake cylinder 1965 squareback

Master cylinder? I would strongly recommend you change to a later type 3 dual circuit master cylinder. Single circuit can be lethal. VWH do a good dual circuit one. Alternatively try ISP west they do single circuit stuff, but its 400 dollars. Best bet is something like this https://www.vwheritage.co...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I ended up adding more weight to the bench to cure it. A piece of wood wont work as when you reverse the car that gap between the tyre and bench increases. Its not possible to use the ratchet on the strap, or at least its not possible for me. A combination of my hand isn't strong enough and the ratc...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

That is a small ratchet strap. The strap isn't the issue. The problem is having something sturdy enough to work against. A nice local tree or lamp post would be handy. Maybe that casting had other corrosion in areas I cant see, on other fuel circuits. Float heights the same. It has improved running ...
