1982 Vanagon Diesel Oil Filler Tube - in Aluminum!   Price: $325
Are you suffering from a cracked and/or poorly-repaired oil filler tube for your 1982 Diesel Vanagon/Westy? Seeing as how the old-style diesel oil filler tube is NLA, I started looking into having one fabricated. After some digging, I found that this has already been done and to great success! Unfortunately, it doesn't come cheap as they are all hand-made by a machinist in small batches. Each tube will cost $325 shipped.

In order to go forward with the Group-Buy, I'll need to find four buyers (since I want one myself) Batches are made in a minimum of 5 units, but if there's enough interest, more can be made in a batch. If you are interested in buying one, please let me know so that we can get this group buy off and running.

Info about the tube:

It is meant to replace part 068115301A for the 1982 Diesel Vanagon/Westy

The main tube is about 1.625" diameter and has a wall thickness of .140.
The flange starts out at .500", and the cone portion is machined from a solid bar. All material is T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, so it's strong and light!! Once the parts are tig-welded together, the end is double-threaded (as the factory one is) and bead blasted for a factory-finished look. Specs and fitment are identical to the plastic oil filler tube that came stock on 1982 diesel Vanagons and campers and it's also compatible with the inner extendable funnel and factory O-rings (part number: n90090501)

Please take a look at the attached photos to see what it looks like compared to the factory original.
Here's a video review (made by another Samba member) regarding the tube in question:
