Brian,

If OG59 doesn't want the late kick panels I'd be interested if they're OG.

I'm assuming they won't fit his 61 as that's an earlier model but of course he has 1st dibs.

Jason
Yes they are OG Jay. Give me a bell on 01404881609 tonight. Brian

Re: FFS

Is it a Brazilian import by chance? I suspect that whoever did the filler was trying to cover up a lot of bodge and rust. Typical of Brazilian imports but not unknown over here.

Re: How do people deal with/fix stripped sump bolt threads?

WHS ^^^^^^ This is the easiest fix. Simply tap the case holes to M8 and fit the stepped studs. Stronger than helicoils etc. but don't overtighten them!

Re: Clearing rust from heater tubes

Pull the engine, get a shop vac with a really long hose and stove it up the tubes until it reaches the cab? Then follow up with a spray of phosphoric acid to kill the rust so it doesn't do it again.

Re: VW Splitscreen Corvair Engine

I know a couple of people with these engines in vehicles. Be aware that they are serious gas gobblers. I would much prefer a Type 1 1776 with decent carbs. Much easier to fit, plenty of power and much better mpg.

Re: Clearing rust from heater tubes

Shot blast and then powder coat ? I think he is talking about rust inside the heater tubes so blasting and painting won't do it! The only way to deal with this is to chop th etubes out from under the bus and replace them with some expensive new tubes. Not a difficult job to do in the garage with a ...

SO42 handle and catch wanted - found thanks

Need a handle and catch for the drawer in the coolbox unit on my SO42. Button on the right please. Don't need the rod or the latch plate and they don't have to be perfect. Cheers
