Re: Sole survivors: the very rarest cars on UK roads today

And infact this shows 1 TL on the road. But doesnt show a capacity. Im guessing its an admin issue, as there are many ways of refering to our cars.

Approximately the same number of 1500s on the road for the last 15 years. Its hard to believe only 1 of them is a fastback.

Re: Type 3 Thermostat Fitting

Glad you found it, at least they are opening and closing now. I would guess that the thermostat is getting tired. Keep your eye out for a replacement at a jumble or on ebay over the summer. Then youre prepared when/if it does fail :)

Re: Type 3 Thermostat Fitting

There is a procedure for setting the hight correctly. Have you also got it located correctly in the bracket? With out the thermostat do the flaps operate fully?

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

How has it been 3 months!? I have done things with this one honest. The first thing was I worked on repairing the belt housing, only to find a replacement from the well know type 3 parts man, Danny Lord. So I sent that for powder coating.

Re: Gasket Set

I found the oil filler tube gasket in my box of gaskets, it looks like it came with a set. I can get some made if we need a supply though?
