    I have bought a Moss badge/spotlight bar for my Mk1 B.

    It seems to me that I will have to make some cutaways in the bumbers rear upper side as the gap between the bumper and the lower end of the grille is so narrow that the flat iron section of the bar mounts need some more space. Maybe only 1/4 inch.

    Any comments before I grab my angle grinder??

    I have been reading in the arcive about the pros and cons of the Weber DGV conversion. I find the car car to be easy to start and with lots of torque ond no flat spots.

    I have been running a Smiths PCV valve on my TD for a ew years. Seems to reduce oil leakage and fumes from the open vents on the aluminum aftermarket side cover.

    Hello everyone, and thank you for the info on the OD. I am really looking forward to slide in my OD box, but I think I will stick to the original setup with OD on 3. and 4. gear only.

    Currently I have been working on the crankcase ventilation. Engine is rebuilt, but I do not know if there are any deviations from standards internally, as high c.r. or hotter cam etc.

    The last time I bought a Facet pump, it came with what I was told was a filter.

  • Steven Devine05 August 2015

    Cut the new filter in two and see if theres a check valve in there.

  • Steven Devine05 August 2015

    I think the new one might be plugged? Chinese manufactured? New doesnt always mean its not defective... Ask me how I know...Ha ha ha.

    Many thanks for your posts! Your set up is a very similar to what mine has to look like with the horizontal ends on the sway bar. I will use high grade hardware.
    Would you mind letting me have your email in case I have some questions later?
    Again many thanks and best regards
