Re: Sump oil temperature sender

Westach - got a spare dual oil pressure/temp gauge knocking around somewhere in the workshop. Will need a thermocouple which is available from Jim or Westach, but if you want it PM me and we can work something out.

Cheers

Re: Sump oil temperature sender

I have a thermocouple attached to my dipstick which then goes into sump. Can’t think of a better way to do it. Involved a bit of drilling dremelling on the dipstick but works really well. I’m using one of the dual aircraft certified gauges that VWJim sells http://www.vwjim.co.uk/ourshop/prod_1232108...

Or were never fitted in the first place !

Pic of either area will help to determine what’s going on. Seems suspicious that both would snap or fall off ?

Re: Two port fan housing

Here’s a very good website to have a browse through. The video links on installing the tinware are very cool 😎 in an 80’s mullet kind of way. http://awesomepowdercoat.com Ideal fan shroud is a trekker one. They’re rare, although Awesome will do you a fully refurbed one at a cost. Another very handy ...

Re: Two port fan housing

Definitely go OG - aftermarket may be nice and shiny, but it doesn’t help your engine.

Re: Safari window catches

I use Creative Engineering ones and there’s quite a load on them with new seals. No issues and work very well.

Bike attachment for Westy style roofrack

Anyone know what type of bike attachment it is that allows you to stand your bike up on the roof rack ? Saw them in an article in the SSVC mag just before Christmas and they seem a lot better than hanging them off the rear window.

Cheers
