    Discovering the joy of engine/gearbox investigations so thought a profile pic of the "cave exploration" was worth it :)

    Searl'e Hi Gordo
    David H suggested I contact you. Need a H/Back passenger seat to match my H/Back drivers seat. David said you may have some backs he gave you some time ago, do you still have one thats up for grabs? So I can do a conversion.

    Hi, I was advised to get in contact with you regarding my carby re-build.
    The numbers i have on my carbies are : VW 445-1 / 9033 on one, and 3213 or 32-3 on the other.
    I am not sure if I need the thermo cut-off valve and the hot idle valve.
    When I try to blow air through any of the orifices associated with these devices, they appear to be blocked?
    I have a 1976 2.0 Litre Manual Kombi.
    Hope you can help. Thanks.

    Hi Joel. Just saw your thread from 2007 about the Subaru conversion. Just wondering what you ended up doing. Did you go ahead with the Subaru motor??
    Cheers, Kris.

    Hi Jane,
    Re: Mungo Trip, I don't do anything without a glitch ! at the moment I am undergoing a major rebuild in the tooth department including a new denture ! should be finished 3rd week in June, even if I have to resort to porridge, soup or egg slurry !!
    When the time is right we don't might meeting up at Wilcannia as we always seem to travel in circles.
    Let us know when you're thinking of heading off.

    Hi Phil
    I've done a bit of research on syncro cooling system and noticed in a few occasions, you are saying: "Why not just replace the hoses that generally fail ..."
    Which ones are the generally failing ones?
    I'm swapping my nylon pipes with SS ones and while at it, I would like to also replace "the generally failing rubber hoses" and just carry spares with me.
    1. syncro
      There are the small ones near the oil cooler that are hard to change. The hoses from the engine to the nylon pipes. Sometimes you have to be careful that you don't remove a good quality hose and replace it with a cheap one that only lasts 12 months. Buy German if you can.

      Thanks mate. Exactly my thoughts - don't replace good with "new" bad quality ones. Cheers

    G'day Andrew,
    Sorry you haven't seen me on KC for a while, but I keep checking in from time to time. I have a friend (Daniel) here at work who is buying a Type 3 Square back and he is looking for someone to give it a once over before he drive it back here to Canberra, just wondering if it ok if I pass on your details to him??
