Take the belt off and hook the wires up as if you polarize the generator - this turns it into a motor, and it should spin in the normal direction. If it doesn't, it's usually bad.

Well, they are part of the heat exchanger system. The heater boxes themselves transfer heat from cylinders 1 and 3, but the shells on the muffler do something of the same for cylinders 2 and 4 - the ...

I think a lot of people have improvised that sort of thing over the years. Sheets of plastic, chunks of old tire inner tubes, plywood... I've seen many.

I don't know if it would prevent battery s ...

Yeah, but why buy a niche product for just a temporary use. I guess its rarity might have re-sale value later on though.

I've used a 41 in my Baja before, that's the same battery my Golf uses, it's longer but still short. (also, it's higher capacity is rather more than what most Bugs would ever need)

No. The 1200 engine is narrower between the exhaust flanges.

I gave up on original style Conti hose with the cloth cover some time ago, the dry climate plus oxyfuels just don't mix. The last time I bought 5mm fuel hose it was this:

I personally don't much for the term "anti-siphon" because I never once found where VW called it that. But that's just me.
