Re: Fishing in the fuel tank

This would be completely hit and miss and would genuinely need you to go fishing with the chances of catching being limited but it was the only thing I could think of. Perhaps combined with above it may work?! https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht605/?da=1&TC=GS-040210605&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIv5bQsr6t6AI...

Re: 1963 UK RHD Ragtop Beetle

Thanks to those who have requested additional pictures and information. I fully appreciate that January is probably one of the worst times of the year to sell a vehicle like this for many reasons. However, whilst I’m in no particular rush to sell it is taking up garage space which is preventing me w...

1963 UK RHD Ragtop Beetle

After much soul searching I’ve decided that I should consider selling my beetle. It is a 1963 UK RHD Ragtop in ruby red. I have obtained the birth certificate which confirms it is a factory ragtop and the matching numbers/engine are all original and the information I have can demonstrate the current...

Re: Someone who could view/inspect a camper for me in Ellesmere Shropshire?

Steve Assuming that it isn’t in the for sale section on here (or may be even if it is) are you able to send a link to it via private message if those with a good knowledge contact you? At least an initial assessment from a set of pictures may be possible before you spend hours driving to see it even...

Re: Brake switch options with servo

Replaced the switch on the campsite this evening and all working fine again now. Many thanks as I hadn’t realised that the switches could become “tired” like this with age. It sounds more like me than a brake switch!

At least I can drive home knowing all is ok now.

Thanks

Re: Brake switch options with servo

Thanks Jim. I’ll get that sorted when I get home. I’ve ordered one to be delivered tomorrow so I have a new one installed before my 8 hour journey home! Delivery costs were three times the amount of the part itself but much better than being rear ended in my view!

Thanks

Brake switch options with servo

I’m currently away in Cornwall and yesterday I had someone stop me to say they had followed me for several miles into Fowey and I had no brake lights. I have a dual circuit upgrade with a vwjim remote servo. I’ve touched the two wires from the switch together and the lights come on so I assumed it w...

Re: Ali side step

I think I’ve got one that is new/unused. I’ve had it a few years but never got around to using it. PM me if interested but as it’s new I’d like to get something close to the new(ish) price if possible. Appreciate that you may want something a little more worn if you are after a used version. Cheers ...

Re: Rear Volkswagen script badge

I think I have one. They have a number of locating tabs/pins and I think one may be damaged but perhaps possible to glue back on? Drop me a PM if interested and I’ll get up in the loft to take a look at some stage.

Re: Big nut gearbox

Where are you? I have just removed a big nut box to replace with an original small nut box given the raft of the bus is stock. The other question is how soon do you need it? The one I’m putting on is unknown condition so I need to make sure it all works before selling the big nut box otherwise that ...

Re: Stripped spring plate thread

Jim. Thanks for that. Can I ask one more question. Having been out this morning I notice the hole is about 40mm deep but the bolt is only about 25mm. The threads hold a little at present but not enough. However could I use a longer bolt so that it reaches the better threads also further into the hou...

Re: Stripped spring plate thread

It’s definitely stripped. The rear 3 bolts are in perfectly nd therefore the plate is flat. I also used a big clamp to pull it all together.

I didn’t think the holes went into the actual reduction box itself. If it does then could it be drilled from the brake drum side to put a helicoil in?

Thanks
