I am building a 1955cc engine AS41 case for my 1970 Fasty...

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a cooler sender combo

What kind of sender combo? Oil pressure and idiot light? Or a correct pressure oil light switch?

Well, you can probably find them separately in the classifieds.

Yup, either set up separately with a "T" or a VDO combo unit from one of the major parts sellers like Air cooled.net or CB Performance.

I think what the OP is looking for is just an original type-3 oil cooler with the sender hole.

I'm also looking for an oil cooler as well, with little success.
They're obsolete and unless you find a NOS one, not available new anymore, .

The part number is 311 117 021B, a later replacement that is similar and fits T25/Vanagon is 070 117 021A.

I've had a few coolers cleaned, flushed and pressure tested, but not confident enough to fit one to my new build stroker engine.

The items are available, most pre owned. I was fortune enough to clean mine and reuse it. Mine was rather nasty to start with.

An oil pressure switch can be secured to the case just behind the distributor. Obviously its easier to do during an engine build. Pull the oil galley plug, drill & tap it for the pressure sender. Once this is done, you'll never have to worry about sourcing a Type-3 specific oil cooler. A Type-1 cooler works fine and fits in its place.. just without the sender hole.
Too many people get freaked out about an obsolete part. There's always solutions. In this case, its a factory looking solution.
