Re: original light switch for 250 GTE needed

What is wrong about the switch you have now? You are talking about the switch in the console, right?

Re: Front Suspension Details reguested

Tom Wilson's Site 250gte.com has some exploded views of the suspension. Worth looking at.

Re: Front Suspension Details reguested

I think the key to the answer is to look at the threads on the item and see if it is drilled for a cotter pin. If there is no hole then a nylon locknut is called for. Bob Arthur GTE 2693

Re: A ridiculous detail...

Tom: Any chance you want to share the source for the restoration of the plate? I know that is has not survived 55 years in that condition. Bob

Re: window mechanism 250 GTE

Well, I guess we have established how much someone is willing to pay for these parts.

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

It would seem that, if the idle mixture screws do not have any effect, the fuel is coming from somewhere else, like a float valve not sealing. Engines do not run without fuel.

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Since three wires are not firing, it would seem to indicate the possibility that one set of points on the right hand bank is not working. Each set is responsible for three cylinders. Hope you resolve this soon. Bob A.

Re: GTE Fuel tank installation

In the post regarding the hose I bought from McMaster Carr, I put down the wrong size. I actually bought 2 1/8" or 54mm hose. That was too, small and 2 1/4" was too loose.

Re: GTE Fuel tank installation

I received the 55mm hose from GTO Engineering today and it fits perfectly. No wire reinforcement, so easy to work with. Have not installed tank yet, but looks extremely promising. Bob #2693

Re: GTE Fuel tank installation

Well I received a foot of 2 1/4" hose which is 54mm equivalent. We lubed it with white grease and after getting it up the filler pipe far enough to install, it would not budge back down. T finally wound up cutting it away and am now in search of 55mm hose.I know GTO has it but at $36 for a 4" sectio...

Thanks John. I missed the Buna-n hose since it was listed as coolant hose. Ordered. Part # 572K54

Re: GTE Fuel tank installation

Hi John: I cut the old one off, but would not have trusted it anyway. My regular hose supply house does not have and 2 1/8" hose, but I understand that a 1997 vintage VW Vanagon uses 55 mm ID hose in the fuel filler. Will try that route and will keep you posted. Bob
