Re: Was this a westy pop top roof option?

They had more legroom, and space for the early bed assembly used on tintop conversions. It was slat+plywood rather than the later GRP as I saw somewhere. Joker 5 and 6 from 1980. Later it was sold as a DIY kit called Mosaik http://www.vwpix.org/T3/Prospekte/deutschland/reisemobile/Westfalia/1980_09_...

Re: Centre crossmember - purpose of large hole?

Lot of the sheet metal parts were not changed after ditching the Aircooled engines. So you may find some brackets and holes which were never needed later. As others already said that hole was used on Aircooled for hot air ducting and later they kept it for the additional Eberspacher BA6/DA6 heater w...

Re: Caravan Wheels for VW T25

The Mefro wheels that big vendors sell around the world are trailer wheels. Or at least they have the only certificate to be used on trailers. Not sure what is the difference in the certification tests but probably car/van wheels need to take more load on dynamic tests. They may be OK if the load ra...

Re: JX to AHU 1Z MTDI engine conversion, what do I need

You need the tdi longblock with injectors, tdi vacuum pump, tdi water pump and tdi injector hardlines. All other thing can be used from the JX except the injection pump. The JX oil pump can be good if it has 36mm tall gears but swap the pickup to the tdi when it has only 30mm tall gears. The ports w...

Re: Vw t25 Westy 1.9AAZ Diesel Not starting

Try to put ground from battery to the starter mounting bolt with a jumper cable. I had problems with oxidized bellhousing making bad ground for the starter which made similar symptoms in wet and cold weather. Removing starter, cleaning mating surface and assembling with dielectric grease solved my p...

Re: Broken Roof on T25 High Top Club Joker

Ouch! Looks bad. Probably repairable, but cheaper to replace. As said, OE do pop up in UK and they are some currently for sale in Germany https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-t3-westfalia-hochdach/k0 or if the OE look is not important, you can buy a new Reimo hightop too. https://www.reimo.com/en/cam...

Heated seat thermistor

Hi all! I am in a project, but stuck at the moment. I want to control cheap chinese heated seat pads with the factory wiring and "relay". In the factory heated pads there is a thermal sensor and the controller senses resistance to ground through that. On the german forums I was told that t...

Re: Is my temp gauge too high?

First be sure that your temperature is actually high or not. Measure the pipes in the engine bay with an IR thermometer and clean the electrical connections (ground points, temp sender connectors, +ve connectors from alternator to fuse panel) to have accurate gauge. If the high temperature is proven...

Re: Is my temp gauge too high?

clean ground connections at the engine, gearbox and behind fuse panel together with steady ~14V at the fuse panel while the engine is running is a key to an accurate temperature gauge however your statement that the fan comes on on this stage can assume that the gauge is correct but your engine runs...

Re: Westfalia Mosaik dimensions or pictures

mosaik kitchen is shorter as the bench seat sits forward a bit and needs more space to open
found a pic on Samba, the Mosaik kitchen is 71cm wide

Re: JX LDA adjustment

Without a diesel pump test bench you can only guess.
Best is to measure the length of the rod on the old and put the ball pin joint on the new to the same position
