  1. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    Hi all, I have recently purchased some valves for replacing mine as they are quite dimpled and as I have the engine out think it would be a good thing to do. Now I stupidly bought the wrong sized inlet valves, 35mm (standard I think?) and now I have (one of) the old valves off I measured it to...
  2. Wheels & Tyres Forum
    Current set up Front 155/80/15 (5 stud smooth steels) Rear 165/80/15 (5 stud smooth steels) I like the staggered look on the bugs, so its about aesthetics than performance for me... I would really like maybe a 185/80 tyre on the rear, a big thick width tyre would look great...has anyone got...

    First of all, I would like apologise if you feel this is the wrong section for this question. I'm fairly new to the forum.

    Hi all, Anyone out there got an oval on standard size tyres (or any pre 67 Beetle I'm guessing would be similar) who could answer a few questions please..... 1. What is the standard tyre size for an oval (inc aspect ratio - I think it's something like 5.60 x 15 but no idea of aspect ratio) ...

    Thought I'd better not continue hijacking the fan thread! Peter, you're right, just measured the two VW pulleys I have, One is 178mm the other 170mm. The larger pulley has a large letter D stamped on the front. Now the worrying bit. Just rebuilt my stock 1600 and used a lot of tinware etc from...
