Re: Top end rebuild

That has been suggested, although if we can get hold of 1500 then would prefer that route. Thanks

Barrels and pistons

My sons have taken my engine out of the van and have decided to replace barrels and pistons. Seems 1500cc ones are not easy to get. Your ideas of where to try please.
Thank you
Terry

Top end rebuild

My son/s have taken engine out of Rosie for overhaul as low compression on cyl no. 4. Slight damage on piston head so going to replace barrels and pistons now while they have the time and as a precaution. However no one seems to have the parts in stock for a 1500cc engine. Guidance please. Thank you...

Re: Van wanted for Classic Cars cover shot

If only my van would run :( thought it was carburetor but my Trevor and Matthew have striped mine down and put it back and I still have a problem. They are going to look at fuel pump next week. I would do this if they get the van running but probably unlikely.

Re: For the attention of anyone with a Tracker....

I have not read all of this thread but my only comment about Skytag is that it does run the battery down when vehicle not in use, I now have a charger to keep the battery topped up when van not being used.

Re: Early mags from no. 2

Hope you sell these, there are a lot of useful articles that have been printed over the years. I also have these and more but can't yet part with them. I love looking back at some of the pictures and reliving days gone by. Wonderful VW memories.

Re: Workshop manuals 63/67 vol. 1 and 2 (reprints)

Hi, these would have been available from the SSVC Shop many years ago. My husband made these available to members, there was also a Parts List. I have a couple of copies of each of these if anyone is interested. My husband also produced PDF files on disc of these manuals for SSVC members. I am inter...

Re: Viccy Farm stuff can someone please post info?

Point taken Terry, but to be honest I don't think that information was put on Facebook either. Obviously an oversight I will try to put right next year. Big thank you to Amanda for all she has done over the years, my kids are 19 and 21 now but still remember her... What was in the magazine before t...
