Re: Powder Coat cost?

Thanks. It looks like the first estimate was on the high side, so it should be worth treking round a few places to see if I can get a better price.

Powder Coat cost?

I've posted this on the Facebook feed too, but some folks aren't on FB, so... What's the going rate for powdercoating tinware? I've been given a guideline average price of £10 per piece by a local company to blast and coat. I reckon there are 20-odd pieces of tinware and I'm thinking of getting the ...

Sold - Pair of used chrome vent window latches (Wolfsburg West)

As per the pictures. Repros from Wolfsburg West. Removed from my single cab when I fitted black handles. Complete and working feely. The chrome is intact and not flaking, but has the usual pin-head pitting on older chrome. Selling as a pair £25.00 inc postage via Royal Mail first class. DSC_1350.JPG...

Re: Engine dies after a few miles

Drill a hole in the deflector plate where you marked, just big enough so that the steel tube is a tightish fit Square tubing to 90 degrees and weld to plate - TIG is nice but careful MIG will work just as well If you don't want to go to the trouble of cutting and welding, you can make a bracket wit...

Re: Fuel tank outlet pipe seals

No, just one. Seal goes against the tank, filter sock goes up through the seal, then the fuel tap or outlet spigot goes on.

The seal is part #26...

Re: Oil bath bracket .

The only place I've seen that sells those is Greg (Campingbox) on The Samba. He makes and sells ones for stale air and fresh air fan shrouds, and the support 'finger' that clips round the back of the shroud to stabilise the bracket. Not cheap though. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.ph...

Re: Errol, the '56 Single Cab

Haven't updated this for almost a year, so I figured I'd add something for the record. The engine is out, completely stripped down and the case and crank are off for machining at the VW Engine Company. It never ran right. It had all the symptoms of valve overlap, but it was a P.O.S and clearly no on...

Re: Source for original case savers?

Fixed it. I think. :D

The centre case nuts are the same size and thread pitch as the case saver. I managed to double-nut a couple on the saver and free it from the stud. They also cleaned the marred thread up nicely too.

Source for original case savers?

Hi One of the case savers unwound with its case (head?) stud when I dismantled the engine to send it off for machining. From descriptions online, I think it's an original VW case saver as it's 'blind' (not open at both ends).The case is a dual-relief case with VW factory refurb stamps. I'm going to ...
