    Took a couple of days to wander around the countryside for a photo shoot of the T3 in a "interesting location" with the object of entering the GoWesty 2019 Calender Contest !
    The contest rules didn't exclude RHD.......... could be interesting, and no, I'm no gonna say the subject of my entry...............unless its successful. :D

    Replaced my steering coupling on my 76 SC Ute today. The old one had a string that had broken near the bolt hole = Stuffed.

    Put a new dash in my 72 kombi, no more jumping fuel guage or cracked plastic next to the securing screw on the bottom left, and now its a KM/H speedo with trip !!!!!

    I have just tested it with my sat nav and the speeds are right, no more needing to guess if the sticker on top of the MPH one is right or not or using the sat nav for speed, speed needle does jump a little though.

    Looks like it had been replaced before as the old one that was in the van had a 1969 stamp on it.

    I don't know whether it been replaced or not. Just because it has 69 on the speedo means it's been replaced. Volkswagen Australia got bodies shipped over from Germany and the speedos where shipped over separately They keep using the speedos until they run out but in that time model changes had accrued. My 72 also had 69 stamped on it,which makes me thing they where using parts up from previous models until they where used up.
    Good to hear that you have got it all working.:) fuel gauge not working correctly will increase the chances of running out of fuel:eek:
    I have left my 72 in MPH with trip meter.

    Handy to know it’s not just my Kombi with a different 69 year speedo.

    The fuel gauge kinda worked, but had it’s moments when it just bounced about, on removing I found one of the tangs the wire goes on loose so am guessing that was the problem.

    I agree, deadlines and the concept of timeframes are a mystery to some people.

    Douglas Adams, the great author of work like “The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy”, was always under pressure from the publishers, and once said:

    “I love deadlines...................I love the sound they make as they whoosh by.” :D


    However, there are some that truly understand the concept, and with enough warning, and a sensible time allowance, contractors I engage usually do. ;)

    Spotty has been difficult when it comes to changing gears - I said it was the clutch cable - I was right, so that was adjusted, but while he was there, the CV joints have been replaced as well.
