Do you have 12 volt wiper motor for 74 beetle in your box/warehouse of treasures ?

Hi Sam,
I'm pretty sure I have a couple of wiper motors but will have to check what year they're for.  I'll sort some pics and post them up.

For the December news, could you put something in it about that Elemental show I've heard about, it sounds a blast?

Could I have:

- The straight cut cam gears.
- The lower pulley tinware piece (second one down from the top with just the cutout for the dipstick).
- The upper pulley tinware piece.

I already have the following:

- The 6th pic in Aircooled Engine (tinware - fanshroud, barrel tinware, wiper parts).
- The aluminium sprung push rod tubes.
- The oil cooler (for niffler)

Sorted, these photos where after you'd picked up the tinware etc.

OK, a few of you knew this was coming but I think I'm in a good spot to start pushing this out.  As I can't appear to attach a spreadsheet, have a look through the photo album links.  I've broken them down into folders so you only need to go through those that may interest you.  I'm working through the list to sort prices but if you see anything you're interested in then let me know and Ill put that to the top of my list.  I can deliver items to Slough if paid before hand.

Photobucket is the way ahead for posting pics, likewise for the avatar.  Let me know if you have any further issues and I may be able to help..I'll just check if I have the permissions and the know-how.


OK, it would appear I can update peoples profiles but it's easy to upload your own direct from your own system.  The images need to be less that 100x100 pixels, and less than 30kb.  Pictures for the forum require an upload from PhotoB, though there is an FB page as well ;-)  https://www.facebook.com/search/str/spl … ywords_top

A proper 'flushing oil' is only for use on newly reconned engines and it's a thinner oil for 'flushing' the galleries and getting into all the small, thinner crevices.  What i think you're revering to is an engine flush which is a liquid you add to your existing engine oil to help it clear out the engine of sludge and deposits.

Personally, I would use the engine flush as you don't know the history of the oil changes the engine has been exposed to.  I tend to use it whenever I change the oil in an aircooled to help stop possible hotspots developing through deposit build up.  If you can, then fit a magnetic oil drain plug which will help catch any random bit of metal that may be floating around the engine.

If it helps, I've just used this on my black Bug and T25 diesel.

Mine has to be a particular, one years only, type for the cross-over type...annoyingly.  One might fit but at the minute my priority is finding a good rear bumper for less that £300  default/hmm

There's a few of the Peru/Brazil Splits for sale starting at £7.5.  Had a look at one that was OK on the outside but both chassis rails had been bent up!
