Today I tried to clean up my crummy speedometer and replace the cracked lens but I realized that the donor speedometer had the wrong lens. I did replace the speedometer cable and now I have no more low speed wobble! Stoked!


I have been working with a shop to make a tachometer lens. Came out really nice. Probably going to get one for my speedometer since it has a crack. I could have them make a few if anyone is interested.

I would be interested. Any idea how much they run?

I need one without the VDO logo on the bottom. I guess later speedometers had the VDO logo on the speedometer face itself.

What goes between the gas tank and the body? It seems I recall foam rubber, or something on a T1, but there was nothing when I removed mine.


Originally, there's a thin foam gasket between the tank and the body...most of them self-destruct on their own without any help from people.

Of all of the cars I've owned, I've seen remnants of a few and only pulled one off of a car semi-intact.


Wouldn't it be in the parts book? I did a quick flip through but didn't see anything listed or pictured. Maybe it's hiding somewhere. Think


Come on, dude!

Anti squeak packing -Fuel tank

Group 2, Illustration 13, #36 on the diagram


It was a quick glance! Geez! Very Happy

Well there you have it folks. There should be a foam seal.

Just for shits and grins...


Not to beat this topic up too much, but what kind of seal exactly should we go with? If it is foam, should it be with or without rubber layers encapsulating it? what thickness and width should it be? The part description of `Anti squeak packing' is vague as to the exact material used.

I took my Mom on a nice scenic cruise through the Orange foothills. She really likes my Squareback.

Re-installed fuel tank and connected to fuel pump. Adjusted valves and went around the block. First time on the road since Fall, 2012. Dancing

110-mile round trip shakedown cruise to the Bug-In. Trans definitely needs an overhaul. All forward gears whine like it's in reverse. Neutral All good otherwise -- runs cool and cruises comfortably at 70.

Got it on the road from Oakland to Santa Cruz, checked the oil pressure to make sure my flickering oil light wasn't serious and swapped shocks with Mr. Steve Clatter.
