Re: External oil cooler advice

They do cost a bit, but the cooler is better quality than the typical cores used. I've used one on a big Type 4 engine that was its only cooler, and the owner reports that it holds a good temp range.

Re: External oil cooler advice

48 or 72 row, with a fan & scoop is my preferred setup. If you're too low you might not be able to fit a scoop.

I've gone up to 96 row on my turbo engine but packaging gets complicated.

Re: Gear guide for a 58

Don't think they're plastic that early, they're metal sprung items.

Look on Schofields website

The original Mexico fuel injected engine used in later production was a 1584cc - what is the motor from?
Those engines are easily spotted, as they don't have fuel pump hole in the top of the case.

Late bus beam

Rotted out, but if anyone needs the tubes or the steering damper mount for a narrowed beam, then its free to anyone that wants it before it goes in the skip.

Re: Rocker shaft mounting block + conrods - stock

Its a 1641cc as it's had the conversion B+P's fitted in the past. Single port heads.

If your parts match, that sounds good to me.

Rocker shaft mounting block + conrods - stock

Over Christmas I had a tidy up and decided I had far too much stuff sitting around not being used, so I've been tinkering with an old engine that was broken down years ago / no history of it. In the cleaning up I've found one rocker arm oil gallery is blocked, which I suspect caused the closest moun...

Re: My Second VW !! mid life crisis ...The 1966 vert

Happy Christmas mate.

I'd missed the post about the pillar. So is it a concrete pillar with fake bricks? Was the blue to give you a surface to bond too?

Looks so much better. Those old bricks were never going to match in.

I think you're going to have to import that yourself. Unlikely for anyone to have one of those sitting on a shelf.

Re: oil pressure

IMHO fully strip down. There might be some salvageable parts in there, but if a bearing fails due to the sand / water / age of standing etc to could wreck the whole engine.
