Re: 411 brake callipers

They don't fit any other Volkswagens, but repair kits & pistons etc are fairly easy to get hold of https://brakeparts.co.uk/shop/VW/Variant/66-74/Variant%201500%20&%201600%20Fastback%20Type%203/Front%20-%20Brake%20Calipers%20and%20Wheel%20Cylinders https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FRONT-BRAKE-CALIPER-REPA...

Re: Type 3 Stalls When Slowing Down

You have to be careful- Wives/partners might be watching this!
Not a lot that I'd admit to, other than the Chateau Mobile, a couple of garages & a modest collection of spares

Re: 32 PDSIT choke.

Re: Dynamo wires

All wires & fan belt disconnected, DF to Earth, then put a 12V supply to it- Positive to D+ , neg to DF- dynamo should run as a motor but only do th...
