    Yes an early T3 gearbox .

    Clutch is hydraulic too.

    Are late bays hydraulic clutches?

    As said the shifter system is a side shift in aT3.

    Hi Kombi Groovers,
    Here's Old Boy doing what he does so well. Taking you there, waiting patiently & helping prepare a meal & give you a soft bed with a cold fridge at hand:D with plenty of water as it's so dry @ Bretti ATM.
    Old Boy at ease & still working:cool:.

    Hi Kombi Camper Lovers,

    What used to be known as 'the rapids' @ Bretti Reserve on the Barnard River.

    Apparently 88 years since the Gloucester River stopped flowing @ Gloucester. Looking at the chart that was yesterday:(:oops::mad:.
    Check on that chart any river you may be familiar with on the NSW east coast. Manning, Myall, Barnard, Hunter, Karuah, Barrington etc etc
    I suppose I'll at least have photos to show my grand kids how it was 'back in the old days':(.

    Not Cheers

    It's the causeway at the bottom of the entry road to Bretti Barry. Been going there 30 years & never seen it like this & whilst I hope you have a good weekend Melissa some rain up there would be good:).
    Cheers

    Ours is a late 79 Bay and NO hydraulic clutch. Sounds like an implant.

    Al,

    No Bays had hydraulic clutches.

    Only the mighty T3 developed that in the air cooled and then the later watercooled.

    Side shift is also a T3 gearbox signal :D

    Otherwise they look very similar.

    The 411 had hyd clutch in '68 :)
    Not a kombi, but still air cooled....
    Reverse switch looks different to T2 also, must be quite a few differences inside?

    Can we finish the gearbox discussion with "I don't care where it fits!:oops:" It's just spare:p.
    What about the holiday photos folks to stay on current topic?;) Post 42 & 43.
    Cheers
