    Gearbox Front Support - A Couple of Questions

    Yeah I did notice that when I offered it up to test fit. I might try tweaking it out slightly in the vice and a pry-bar first though as I don't want it taking off the protective paint I have just put on. :lol: Yeah, we are spoiled with parts really for these old things, especially compared to...

    Gearbox Front Support - A Couple of Questions

    Thanks for confirming the bolts to the chassis. Yeah it is strange. I thought I was over looking something obvious! Perhaps it is something to do with the production process as the original also has a hole in that position, but perhaps they used to remove the stud / thread? :?: I might try...

    Gearbox Front Support - A Couple of Questions

    Evening Gents, I purchased a new support mount from JK and it has raised a couple of questions: The new one has a threaded bolt on the bottom which the original did not. Does anyone know what this is for? Also, when I removed the original mount, it only had one bolt holding it, however...

    Beetle Show and Tell

    :lol: Old and pragmatic! :mrgreen: No Decklid is probably fine for drag-racing, but I'm not so sure about sitting in traffic with the sun blazing down on the top of the engine and the hot exhaust gasses flowing around on it. :?

    Beetle Show and Tell

    I enjoyed this, helps get you in the spannering mood with the current lack of shows: I think it would look better with a Deck Lid though. :? https://youtu.be/eYRujFEOtMg

    Alternator belt length

    I tried a couple of belts available from the usual suppliers for my Bosch alternator, but neither seemed to fit correctly. I ended up guessing a few mm less to try and get a better tension and ended up with a 10 x 888mm V Belt from EuroCarParts.

    Oil pressure relief valve stuck.

    It sounds like yours is really stuck, so I am not sure if it would work, but I've used a piece of decking wood, shaped to fit in the end of the valve, then tapped on the end of the wood with a mallet to get it 'stuck' in the end of the valve, then I gave it a slight twist and pull to get it out...

    Rolling Car Show During Lockdown

    I have been watching this guy on YouTube for a few years now, he is very relaxing to listen to and acts like you are there with him to help him with various projects, mostly VW related, but he works on anything with an engine from lawnmowers to cherry pickers. He seems to really like finding...
