What brand of pliers would have been used in a 71 bug kit. How long were they?


There are no brand markings on the pliers.

The total length when closed is approx. 6 3/8"

Example of a '69 tool kit form the Gallery, it should be the same:

I haven't seen those bags before but it definitely looks interesting and I can see it being real.

This is a little OCD on my part but I am in the process of making sure I had all the right tools for my 63 Bug, 65 Bus, and 67 Bus toolkits and got stuck on the spark plug tools. I mistakingly mixed 2 reproduction tools (from the popular $45 kits that WW sell) with some originals and need some help identifying which is which.

On the left of the picture, the 4 generic mid 60's plug/lug sockets look the same but 2 of them have rubber grommets in the spark plugs, and are 143mm long (instead of 140mm) and bizarrely a Bug lug nut fits much nicer in these 'grommet' versions. They all weigh the same at 214g. Which is which?

Finally, could someone ID the other two sockets, particularly the longest one as this looks early (well made) - type 3 maybe?

The oddball socket on the right is headed for the trash can unless someone knows where its from - neither end is 19mm lug nut.

When was the blue rolled Stahlwille kit offered as an accessory by VW? Any brochure illustrating it?

I'm not sure but earlier version of this kit are pictured in the VW Parts books near the end.

The one above is from the 1970s so I don't know if that is still the case in those later parts books.
