Re: Fan shroud with heater outlets

You can also get choke blanking plates for the carbs. I had to fit a pair on my Dells. They’re the main culprit in fouling the shroud.

Also make sure your cylinder tins have the internal vanes - they’re critical in directing air over nr 3 and nr 1 cylinders.

Re: Sump oil temperature sender

Westach - got a spare dual oil pressure/temp gauge knocking around somewhere in the workshop. Will need a thermocouple which is available from Jim or Westach, but if you want it PM me and we can work something out.

Cheers

Re: Sump oil temperature sender

I have a thermocouple attached to my dipstick which then goes into sump. Can’t think of a better way to do it. Involved a bit of drilling dremelling on the dipstick but works really well. I’m using one of the dual aircraft certified gauges that VWJim sells http://www.vwjim.co.uk/ourshop/prod_1232108...

Re: any german speakers out there please

Try one of the translatation apps - really work well. You speak into the app and it translates into German and vice versa !

Sleeve for grub screws

Really off topic one this, but I'm looking to use a grub screw in some soft material (wood/stone) that won't take a thread. Is there such a thing as a pre-tapped sleeve available anywhere ? Looking for a pretty small sleeve approx. 3mm diameter which can be glued in place to take a grub screw. Cheer...

Maybe the nuts have just fallen off?
Or were never fitted in the first place !

Pic of either area will help to determine what’s going on. Seems suspicious that both would snap or fall off ?
