    Hi Phill,

    Just seeing if you can help me out with any other info on the 2.5 Ottinger engines for the T3. I currently have one in my van and am trying to confirm if it is the real deal. It was built by Leo Number 3.

    These engine are aftermarket? or Factory extra?

    Any if you have would be great.

    Thanks,

    Leighton

      Oettinger were aftermarket. Some engines reported to be aftermarket were just copies. I don't know how to tell the difference.

    Hi Phil, thanks for the advice. Just checking we are on the same page, my Kombi has not seats at all, so are you saying I should advertise to find a set of T3 rails with seats?

    Hi Phil, I have recently joined this club and have a 74 Camper in the process of restoration, I was given your name from Mark as someone who may be able to assist me. I am in need of front seats for my Kombi, was also told that may be simpler to buy post 77 rails and have them fitted with seats from a T3, can you help?

      You are better off getting a set of T3 rails from a wreck as the bay rails dont fully suite the T3 seats.

    Hi Frank, I saw on a 2014 post you had some experience with East Coast Classics in SA and was wondering if you could share that with me. They are working on a bus for me and it sounds like I need to be aware of their shortcomings. FYI they also did a previous bus restoration for me and the quality was pretty good, but sounds like it has gone downhill since.

    Thanks, Paul
