Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.uk Address Editor, VW Camper & Commercial, Jazz Publishing The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJ www.volkswagencamper.co.uk Just back from the new event, Camper Calling, at Ragley Hall over the Bank Holiday weekend. Organised by the same team that bring you Camper Jam (and Camper Mart), Camper Calling takes a very different route in that it’s much more of a music festival rather than a VW show – though judging from the acres of Vdubs camped in the VW camping village area it certainly appealed to bus owners! A full report will be in next issue but feedback has been excellent and the lakeside setting and landscaped parkland is simply awesome. We managed to bring together around 50 previous award winning buses from Camper Jam, spanning 2008 – 2016, for a…

the birthday present!

The phone rings and it’s his cousin Manny, wanting him to go and look at a 35 year old Volkswagen that’s not been started up in twenty years! Manuel Fernandez had been on the lookout for a bus for some time, he’d owned a few in the past and with his fiftieth birthday coming up, he wanted to re-live some old memories and treat himself to another. It had actually been Alex who’d first spotted the advert and pointed it out to him. Manny had left a few messages with the seller without any response. And then, no sooner had friends and family arrived at the Agueros residence, beers been handed around and the barbeque fired up, than the seller finally responded and the brother in law had to step in and…

T3 Power Upgrades We’ve just been reminded of Ultimate Engineering’s excellent fitting kit that enables owners to fit the far superior TDi engine and gearbox from the Audi A4 or Passat B5 to their T3. Tim Shettle is busy putting together an online build thread that will show people how he carries out the conversion and will allow people to watch the sequence and process that is used with his specialist parts to build a TDI conversion with matching gearbox from the same donor car. “It is the strength of these newer gearbox’s that is the key to building a reliable TDI conversion into a T3” Get in touch with Tim at www.ultimate-engineering.co.uk or on 07810320464.

the fastest 4 x 4 x far!

But the stock 3,164cc lump only produced a little over 200bhp A nd then he came across a T3 Syncro with a blown engine. Sadly, the engine was not blown in the way he would have liked. It didn’t have a turbo, it was just a 2.1 water boxer that had suffered a coolant leak and been allowed to run dry. It was as dead as a desiccated dog in the desert! Wolf took the old bus by the scruff of its neck, dragged it back to his workshop and set about building a Syncro the way that Volkswagen should have done twenty years previously. Old VW’s simply don’t rust out in Las Vegas, so the engine was the obvious place to start. Wanting a little bit more power and torque than was…

Hi Bus Doctor I have just bought a ‘69 Devon Torvette camper, the bus is lowered and sitting on 17 inch Radar chrome wheels with low profile tyres. Please could you let me know the correct tyre pressure as I keep getting different details from different people. Kind regards George Baldwin After some investigation, the general consensus is that the pressures you need are 51psi all round. Split Gear Stick Lengths Dear Bus Doctor, Hi, can you tell me if early split and late split gear sticks are of different lengths? Specifically from the ball at the bottom to the little cup bit that sits under the…

Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.uk Address Camper Mail, VW Camper & Commercial, The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJ A bay called Dave Hi there, I’d like to introduce Dave, a ‘77 bay with an original factory fitted high top door. It is believed that there are only 5 or 6 of these in the country and one of just a few hundred ever produced. Dave was brought as a business investment and has been converted from a camper to an ice cream van. The restoration was intense! The work was carried out by Simon Williams at The Bus Depot and he helped oversee absolutely everything including the freezer installation. Everything has been custom made including the…
