Re: Gear stick coming out of socket

Sorted it. Changed the front section of the linkage, maybe 3/4mm difference in it which threw it out too far.
Thanks for your help.

Re: Gear stick coming out of socket

Ha, thanks! No never left or right just forwards and backwards. I don't think there are any repro parts - but you could be on to something perhaps with sloppy parts, being on the linkage. Thinking about it the front section has been welded so it could be that which throws out the length. Also, how i...

Gear stick coming out of socket

Hello everyone, I have an early split with gear stick in the 'further back' position however the floor has been modified in the past and although I can select each gear, if I push too hard on the stick when selecting the gear stick pops out of the socket of the selector rod. I was wondering if any o...

Re: Cant get the engine to go in

Thanks for your help, took a mm or so off the bell housing and it's gone in. Oh and a slight burr on the clutch plate I noticed in my 'trial and error' troubleshooting session.

Nothing fancy with the front mount by the way.

Cheers
Chris

Re: Cant get the engine to go in

Ive started clearancing but without taking the flywheel off its a bit of a guessing game. I've started on a template to give me a an idea. If all the 12V flywheels are the same size and I assume that the Beetle it came out of was 12V why won't it just fit straight in? Or is that the probglem - the g...

Re: Cant get the engine to go in

Thanks for the replies so quick. I did use a tool to line up the clutch and I've tried to turn the engine a little bit to fit the splines, that what I'm not getting about it! Only thing i can see is the flywheel has rubbed on the bottom of the bell housing where the studs go through - is that the bi...

Cant get the engine to go in

Hello all, please help! I have done a straight axle conversion with an AB gearbox and don't seem to be able to get the engine (also AB but 1600 b&ps from my measurements) back in. The engine ran fine before and was mounted to the original split gear box. The vans a 58/59 so 6V although the flywheel ...

Re: Strange stamp on roof

Thanks for your replies. I suppose that makes sense, you do see similar type marks on fresh steel, pipes etc.

Looks like its travelled a long way before it even drove a mile, steel from the States to Hanover and then back to Oregon!

Strange stamp on roof

Hi, I am in the process of removing the 7 different layers of paint on my van and come across a stamp on the roof which clearly shows 30 58 and a circle which i think has United States written in it but cant make out anything else. What is strange is the it is underneath all the paint and etched int...
