Re: spare tyre behind front seats?

What year bus?

I have a 185 R15 tyre behind the bench seat in my 56 truck and it fits. Think it's a 185/65R15. It's the last of the (undersized) tyres that came with my truck. I kept it when I replaced the other tyres because it fitted behind the seat.

Re: Late heat exchangers to early pods.....

Perfect! That is exactly what I was thinking. Do you then use 50mm internal diameter polylock flexi exhaust to join to the pod? Cheers for the link! Russ My truck is a '56 and came with the original steel spiral flexi tube that has a 50mm ID. I line that up with the outlet from the adapter as I sli...

Re: Late heat exchangers to early pods.....

I found a company on ebay that makes exhaust parts and got them to make me adaptors. The specification I gave them was... 60mm inside diameter to 50mm outside diameter, with the wide ends 25mm long and the narrow ends 50mm long, I used this seller on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/everyexhaustpart ...

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...

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...
