Rear tires are Firestone slicks with Caldwell recaps.  20+ years old and NLA for a long time.  Going to have to replace them with something new, but not many good options.


But do you think you are at 25 inch diameter on the rear tires.

Without the cage does the DVKK sticker have to go?  Grin

Nope. It's a life time badge of honour.  Kinda like a war medal for turning 100 mph in the quarter.

And it ran 100 in the quarter long before the cage.

Sam I were just talking about this, and the legend of the 40mm heads... Any progress on the re-IDA-ification?

Unfortunately nothing significant.  Collecting a few parts.  Hoping to get the gearbox out soon so that I can pull the spool and change the R&P.

You could get a limited slip form about $1500 from Paul Gard.  I got myself one for Christmas. He advertises on the Samba,

Seeing as how a Quaife would easily double the cost of any good gearbox, it's hard to blame you there! And nothing wrong with slowing down a bit to collect some parts, it's better than getting halfway through a job before realizing you need another $750 worth of parts to finish!

A better answer is that Superdiffs are significantly lighter.

Jeez, how much are Quaifes over there, then? Quaifes are amazing value for money at least, they are over here. Just paid roughly 」700 UK for one for my 901 Porsche trans. That's cheap.

Last I checked, a Swingaxle Quaife runs about $1,500-$1,600. I paid about $1,300 for my "built" 4.37 'box three years ago with H.D. axles, superdiff, hardened keyways, 3.78 mainshaft, etc.

We might have finally found the anomaly, the one Porsche part that's actually cheaper than the VW equivalent!

I'm following this instead of making a phone call or just stopping by. Not trying to bother Mr.Conklin.  Grin

Finally got the gearbox out yesterday.  I move slow nowadays.
Ordered a new linkage from Berg since I have somehow lost the one I bought from Mark Herbert back in 2000 or 2001.  It was off of the Quaife test enginegutted that I can稚 find it  Huh

Maybe it's because you've been driving the '62 so much. It might be time to get back in the '67 and reclaim a little pep in your step!


also... if Berg is backlogged on the linkage let me know. I can pull one out of the stash for ya  Grin
