Hi Andy,

I can't help you with the original floor plate, but my personal opinion is not to give up on the EMPI. I suffered similarly, until I got somebody who really knew what they were doing to re-weld the lock-out plate and re-fit and adjust the EMPI. It has worked like a dream since. I would never go back. The EMPI is cheap and cheerful, and works well when you get it right. CSP and Scat are reckoned to be better quality though (but more expensive).

Jon Mawby at Autopoint Knutsford. He's the proprietor. It's an independent garage, but he's a VW enthusiast who owns a T2 and T25 himself.

I'm guessing it was like stirring a bowl of porridge. Good luck! Wink

thanks all for comments and Tim found the thread i was referring to .The idiot question is on the inner rim of the plate there are two slight indents one side formed by the turned down edge and a single slightly curved cut out on the other .The diagram appears to show the two indents to the passenger side and can anyone confirm this .(i assume this has a relevance to the reverse gear lock out )
thanks again
