    Hi everyone ,Im currently Restoring a 79 bay and have rebuilt the engine.Trying to get the end float correct but it seems I have too little end float.With no shims in and flywheel on I'm getting approx .80mm which doesn't seem enough? even looking at buying shimms the smallest seems to be .30 so 3 times that is min .90mm.any ideas what could be going on?iv changed the mains which are correct.Any help would be greatly appreciated cheers

    .8 of 1mm is 32 thou of an inch.

    With shims in you are aiming for 4 thou or 0.1mm

    You should be able to get 10 thou

    Might need to look overseas

    Type 1 you can get .24, .30, .32, .34, .36

    3 x 0.24.

    Ok - look up CSP part number 105 291. 021

    They have 0.24 in stock

    0.07 to 0.13 max 0.15
    you should be able to get shims in 0.15, 0.2, and 0.3
    you can also machine the shim surface at the flywheel if necessary
    talk to The bus stop

    I always set mine before assembling the engine, Crank in the vice, fit the main bearing then the flywheel and torque it to correct tension, check the clearance with feeler gauges and fit shims as required. When you get it right assemble the crankcase then fit the flywheel again and using the dial gauge recheck the end float. this eliminates a lot of buggering around and has worked well for me with all VW engines since the 1960's.

    cheers guys ,sorry I haven't replied sooner, just seeing them now. Stupid mistake by me, when checking the end float I had the front pulley on so I had something to lever off to check it but I didn't put the spacer in behind it so it was a little tight on the casing behind it.
    Wont lie I shit myself haha. Its in and going well cheers again
