PostSubject: Hello, just taking a look   Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:25 pm

I'm a 'late' bay owner, a 1974 South African. Just came over for a look as I read a post by Olive looking for some info on the build date of the van.

Don't worry, i'm not a snob and don't look down my nose at the Brasilan bay (you've spelt it wrong btw Smile ) I know some do but they're just the ones who can't afford a splitscreen Smile

I've just read a post in the tech area about perished fuel pipes - i'm really surprised to hear that on a modern vehicle but aren't late late bays designed to run on Ethanol E58 with a fuel system to suit? I'm not familiar with how much the fuel system changed, but if the filler neck to tank junction is the same then VW Heritage do a very good quality tank end filler pipe for about £40. Smile

Hi, welcome. So if your Bay is South African, is there a chance it was built from a kit put together in Brazil?

Herzlich Willkommen, Joker!

Yeah, the filler pipe issue is a strange one, it really sounds like they got some duds from their suppliers. I'm lucky so far, but I'll keep checking it Rolling Eyes

Surely that should be 'better VERY LATE than never?!'

Its a CKD yes, (so even more fake bay than a Brasilian Wink) but assembled in South Africa, not Brasil. Funny you should ask that though as i've just been asked the same recently as mine has funny little reflectors under the headlights which can be found on earlier Brasil bays too. Its definitely assembled in South Africa though - had it confirmed by VW

cheers all - i'll try and limit the invasion. I'm really interested in the cooling aspects of the watercooled buses and fitment of transmissions etc if anyone knows if they're similar between late and late late bays? Are the transmissions the later '6 rib' as found on the 2 litre aircooled? I know it runs the flex 1.4 polo engine but is it capable of handling twice the torque and power output? I'm currently shipping in a 1972 Riviera from the USA but am also looking at getting a new brasilian from there too (albeit LHD) and its very cheap, with a view to hanging a new scooby engine outback
