I am missing the tin that would cover the pusrod tubes on the drivers side of the engine on my '72 (TypeIV Engine). Is part G the correct piece? It seems to be the only part I need. Thanks.

no, G is up top and push rod tubes are underneath.

this tin goes above the pushrod tubes: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=756713

There is a left and a right piece and they are hard to find in good shape.

What is that K piece? I took that off my bus when replacing the muffler - have not replaced it yet. Want to remove the rust first.

The heat shield to keep your foam seal from melting amongst other benefits.

Oh, well good thing I don't have a foam seal then, so problem solved, right?? Don't worry, I have one on order at the local VW shop...
