I went to put my fan shroud together today. Step 1 was to install the (55A) alternator boot onto the shroud. I'd bought the reproduction part 021 903 655 B to use as my old one is unusable.

Trouble is, the part falls out of the shroud hole with the slightest movement. Now I learn that the original part was 021 903 655 D and that part is different to fit the larger late bay Type 4 shroud hole. Not only is the shroud fitting diameter different, these parts have different heights!

These "B" parts are being sold all over as a fit for late bay shrouds, and I've found no source for a "D" part. WTF. Sad

So please tell me ... where can I possibly buy an NOS "D" part, or how in the heck are people using the "B" part without putting themselves in major risk of a big air leak and an overheating alternator down the road? I thought of silicone-ing it to the shroud, but doesn't it need to rotate with alt. belt adjustment?

It sure was. I even went so far as trying out the old original spring (larger circumference than the "B" repro one) to see if that might influence the repro part to stay in place. Nope. Trust me, I wanted to make the new one work but no way could be convinced that part was going to stay put.

I am not sure what engines got the larger boot and which ones got the smaller boot. My 412 fan shroud takes the larger boot and thus has been PITA to deal with in this area.

You can take a piece of aluminium or galvanized tin and cut a washer from it to fit the smaller boot with a pair of tin snips. Glue the washer to the inside of the shroud with some RTV silicone cleaning the inside of the shroud first with some brake cleaner.

I was thinking along this line, but wary of the silicone letting go. If someone here has done this with good longish-term results, I'm willing to seriously consider it.

Thanks for the reference information. So, I know that the hole in my '76 fan shroud is larger than some earlier years and the -"B" suffix part is from that earlier era. The 022 903 655 boot has a round alternator port whereas the 021 903 655 B and D have "D-shaped" alternator port. The -B labeled repro I got has the D-shaped port. So, not the 70A by mistake.

I have the original 021 903 655 D part that came off my shroud. The part number is molded into it so I know exactly what it is. It fits properly and has a larger shroud hole end than the -B repro part. Perhaps the original VW -B part was slightly larger than the repro, allowing it to fit better, I don't know.

Still, there has to be a bunch of guys here with late bays that have replaced their alternator boots with the new repro, right? Tell me, you hypothetical members, did it fit right or not?

The engine and fan housing engine #s are the same GD016245. The VW part number cast into the lower end of the shroud face is 021.119.625A. (FWIW, there's a large "6" immediately above the part number, next to the VW logo)

That's 022 903 655 Elbow 70A 75-79.
I will contact those potential sources Monday and report back.
I'm skeptical of vwpartsvortex, as I've seen them report things available but when contacted it turns out they have to place an order with VW and THEN find out if it's available. Surely hope to be wrong about that this time.
VWHeritage - what do you think "outlet fits CJ and late AP" means?

I would GUESS based what is below that /B is for the 1700 shroud and /D for the 1800 & 2L shroud. VW shows they have stock of the 021 903 655 D part as a CLASSIC PART. This usually means new run or reproduction and not old stock. Everyone who lists the /D is pulling their availability from VW Classic Parts DE. It appears everyone else is selling the /B (Airhead?) part for 1972 1700 - 1979 2L. The question is do you want to spend $30 for a VW part from Germany to find out their reproduction is also a /B?

VagCat says /B is air hose for alternator /1, and /D is air hose for alternator /3 but there is no explanation what those stand for - and there is no motor designation off to the right like 66, 70 etc. I believe that the fiche probably once listed alternators by 1,2,3, etc but since they are NLA only the late 55amp remains. Jerseylooker only lists the /B and shows it for the 66bhp motor which is the 1700. There is one mention elsewhere that /D is 1800 and 2L motor. I did notice that pulley 021-903-109A goes with /1 also, and the pulley 022-903-109A goes with /3 if that is a clue. Bus Boys lists the 021 pulley for 72-74 (1700) and the 022 pulley for 75-79. This confirms that the /B part is for 72-74 1700, and the /D part is for the 1800- 2L motors.

CJ and AP are engine codes. CJ is one of the codes for a 1976> 2L 70 HP motor, and AP is a 1974-1975 1800 code.

Quote:
M251 72-73: 1,7-Liter-Motor mit 66 PS CA/CB/CD/CE
74-75: 1,8 Liter mit 68 PS AP/AW/ED
76-: 2,0 Liter mit 70 PS CJ/GD/GE
statt 1.6-Liter-Motor mit 50 PS

I see now ...
GD 1976/77 2000cc
CJ 1976-1979 2000cc - European only

What do you think the difference would be between the GD and CJ engines?

I've emailed both vwspares.ie and vwheritage.com asking for clarification on just what it is they're selling. Am concerned that description "with round outlet" doesn't match the photo. The photo is identical to my 021 903 655 D part with the 'D'-shaped outlet.

But ... it just keeps getting more interesting. Over at Bus Depot, I searched for "021 903 655 D" and this comes up: http://www.busdepot.com/021903655d as Part Reference Number: 021903655D. It's the round outlet boot used for 70A alternators.

It won't surprise me to learn this 70A one is the part that vwspares and vwheritage are showing on their websites.

Hmmm. Eh?

What about a couple rivets to hold it in place?

I get being frustrated at not having the "proper" part but that would probably solve your problems without having to hunt all over.

You did not need to write VWHeritage. They are selling a VW Part that comes from Classic VW DE. That is a division of VW that sells obsolete parts. When the part is old stock the description usually reads "genuine VW." When the part is a modern reproduction accepted by VW as a replacement it reads, "classic part." The part in question that you want information on is a "Classic Part." You will have to buy one and have it shipped from Germany to know whether it is really any different than the one size fits all that everyone else is selling right now. So, if you are willing to spend $35 to get one to you to test it, please let us know how it fits.

Rebuilt Alternators have been shorting out and frying the Alt. wiring. What is causing this is one of the B+ terminals is too long and is shorting out on the Intake cover.

022 903 203 Alternator seal

Question: Does anyone know if this is the correct p/n for the tin-seal-ring for an alternator 022-903-203?

Yes, IF you use it with the replacement 022 alt cover plate. The 021 plate used a different plastic seal ring. If memory serves me: the 021 plastic ring has a raised edge on it to fit in the hole. and is NLA. The 022 ring is flat and has a locking 'tab' to hold it in place at the upper adjustment bolt. The big hole is 2 different sizes between the 021 and 022. You cannot mis-match the rings......

From the Bus Boys site:

K. 022-119-281 Alternator Coverplate, New 1972 to 1979

Note: When using the 022-119-281 plate as a replacement on 1972 to 1974 models, the plastic gasket for the Alternator must be replaced with newer style - order 022-903-203.

I just got off the phone with VW Vortex. This /D part, although shown on THEIR website as available, is NOT available through them. This kind of nonsense is why I didn't leap at the chance to call them when they were first mentioned, as just a couple days ago I called them on some hardware their website also showed as available, only to find out it was not. Today the guy explained to me that they are removing the NLA parts only as they are discovered, through orders and calls like mine. If you look at their website now, you will see it marked as DISCONTINUED PART No longer available for purchase.

I see what you mean SGKent about the part showing as valid and available on the Classic VW DE website. It seems much more likely than not that if I ordered the part through them it would be the right one. What throws me is the descriptions on the VWHeritage, VWSpares, AND Bus Depot websites, and I sure as heck wouldn't place an order through them when things don't look right. Still waiting to hear back from VWHeritage and VWSpares emails.

According to the Classic VW DE website, I'm supposed to be able to order these parts through my local dealer. When I called the nearest one, the guy who seemed well-informed and familiar with them said, "oh no we don't have an account with them". When I called the next one, the guy said he'd "check into it and call me back". If no luck, I'll just order online direct later today ... what worries me is not knowing how long it'll take as my fan shroud assembly (and everything that hangs off it) is being held up on this one damn part.

I just got off the phone with VW Vortex. This /D part, although shown on THEIR website as available, is NOT available through them.
