Re: 1950 Barndoor in the UK....

Wasn't there a story of one being scraped/cut up left in a field in Leicestershire/Northamptonshire years ago, maybe my razor sharp memory playing tricks on me. :wink:

Re: Play in the steering Column ?

I think you will have to completely dismantle the steering box to change the column bearing.... And even the new ones are 'loose' its the way the box is designed. Also there should be a ring on top of the bearing which centralises the column sometimes this is missing.

Re: Chassis no query

The first three numbers you have say its a standard bus type 22 and the 7 indicates it was made in the 67 model year, which started in August 1966. The six numbers after that are the actual chassis number ie 227-012123. I would say your bus is an August 66.

Re: Barndoor engine vent lourve trim

Paul they really need to be 310mm. I did get mine from Schofields but did have to wait so they may have been special order from WW.
I know your already tooled up and have material sorted for stainless but why can you just get some pressed in Aluminium as a trial?

Re: Barndoor engine vent lourve trim

I'd love some in Aluminium and they would be more original. That said I would buy some as I lost one in a bush somewhere.... Other repro ones are already available from Schofields/WW Read this thread for info.... http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=253232&highlight=vent Aluminium! :wink:

Re: Rusting hulk

I've been evicted from the council garage, but I bought an inflatable garage from Machine Mart, so i'm now anywhere I can hack into some electric... very big hammer still in use though :wink: I only do stock or dropped spindles and steering boxes to order. Thanks to all for the kind words....not you...
