    Dan, if your local VW Mechanic can not help out try PM to ttmck as he is in SA also and may give guidance as to where to get from.
    You can try Mick Motors (Google search will find details for you) up here in Qld - you'll just have to be specific as to type of engine to make sure

    Just get the complete engine set. You'll need most of it anyway.

    I am interested in getting some too for another job. Just got the complete set for one engine but I will require some seals for my present engine. I wonder if they have to come from germany whether it is worth getting a few sets to reduce the postage etc. There must be quite a few others who want them.

    I got some from Imported Autoparts in Melbourne. I did some research and they say the Viton ones are the best. Below is a copy of my email correspondence with the guy. Also here is a link about using a sealer when installing them, recommended by Jake Raby. The loctite 565 sealer is available from CBC Bearings for about $30.

    Thank Michael. That seems like the way to go and not that expensive either. Better get an email in the works for that.

    Thanks

    Don't use a locktite product. VW places used to sell (I think it's called) Curil K2. It's a non hardening, high temp sealer that most VW repairers should know about. (just my ten cents worth)

    Nearly every VW mechanic uses this. There must be a reason.:)

    Jake Raby on the typeIV engine tear down and rebuild dvd uses a product called permatex ....... don't know anything more than that, perhaps the other products supercede that one as the dvd looks dated. Great dvd by the way ......Bugme

    Permatex is a very good relaible sealant as are many others. O' rings and seals normaly come in Nitrile, Viton then Silicon - like most O rings nitrile is the norm, but much better are viton and the RR are silicon, especially for temperature and the hardening prospect. Most of the non hardening sealents are worth it to keep a good seal for many years.

    Doc, where did you get the rebuild CD from??
