Re: Wanted 205 distributor

There are more than several types of "205" distributor : http://fullmoonbusclub.com/forum/topic/144?page=1 You need to match the distributor with the carb and the appropriate engine, so for example a 1600SP can use a Solex 30pict 1 with a 113-905-205K and timed at 7.5 degrees BTDC at 850/900 rpm.

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Notwithstanding my previous comments regarding the compatibility of the carb and distributor, given the recent weather conditions, ie cold and damp, this is starting to sound like carb icing. Have a read here: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/article/carburetor-icing/ VW were almost certainly aware of ...

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Things to check: Is the fuel tank clean inside; have you ever removed it and given it a good shake and drain with some nuts and bolts inside? Is there a filter in the fuel tank outlet and if so is it clean? Is the fuel line (both hard and soft) clean and clear up to its entry into the fuel pump? Hav...

Re: Top end rebuild question

I think you might have answered your own questions, the non-magnetic silver and bronze particles are most likely bearing materials, and the clicking sound checking end float probably means it's game over for the bottom end - the end float maximum is 5 thou ie not a lot. If you're of a mind to rebuil...

Re: Top end rebuild question

Just my tuppenny worth, and more so if you don't know the history of the engine, but given if you've already got all the tinwear and the heads & B&P off, it's not much more work to split the cases to fully investigate. Other than that, I would at the very least check the end float.

Re: Wanted - Stock 1500cc distributor

Slough/Bracknell would probably be your best bet, although you could use a 113-905-205K. Timing is the same at 7.5 degs BTDC. Assuming you are using a Solex 30 pict 1 with the "power jet"?

Re: Insurance outside EU

As things stand at the moment, all motor insurance policies issued in the U to a UK resident provide the legal minimum requirement (third party) demanded by each of the member states of the EU, so you should already have that from RH. You will probably be charged an additional premium to extend that...

Re: Solex 30 Pict-1 Parts?

The air correction jet (125z) is used on all 30 Pict versions, so you might find the simple option is to pick up one of these and rob it for bits. Try Desi Yates on FB for example. The brass bush was threaded from the factory so that a rebuilder could remove the bush and gain access to the ball bear...

Re: Front Wheel bearings

Unless they are "*******" sizes (ie not 'standard'), they should be available from any good bearing supplier. Same goes for the oil seal. The bearing number is normally etched into either the inner or outer race (usually 5 or 6 digits and a few letters). This is the size/fitting/spec of the bearing....

Re: Rear wheel bearing

Ah, thanks for that interpretation Jim! Just a thought though, if the outer race of the N207 bearing just "fell out" there may be other issues, such as the race rotating in the RGB housing, or that it wasn't a good fit to start with (Chinese bearing?) Either way, more investigation might be needed...

Re: Rear wheel bearing

When you say "diff cover",do you mean you've separated the Reduction Gear Box (RGB)? If so, assuming the outer race is a) undamaged, and b) returned to it's original orientation, then you should be OK. A couple of points to note though: If you've already got the outer RGB housing off, have a look at...

Re: Bowden tube won’t stay down in place?

Have you "shimmed" the bowden tube? A couple of M12 washers on the rearmost end of the tube should sort it. You're looking for about an inch of deviation from an imaginary straight line.
