What Do You Want To Know About Your VW?


Welcome to the best Volkswagen site on the Internet. The Shoptalk Forums is about being a VW family orientated site. Please read the rules. I am just an old guy here that is gathering information on these little old air-cooled German Cars, and Buses. The content we add to this site will have great growth potential for the STF. The objective here is to make this The Best VW Internet Information Center. Thanks guys for all the help. And Welcome to the STF. :wink:

If anyone has any info that needs to be added to the Sticky PM me.
Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

It lists wear limits, torque specs, places to write down rod bolt stretch, crank end play, etc, etc. Is is very comprehensive but I'm sure you'll think of more! It is in Excel format. Everett agreed to host it here: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/inf ... _sheet.php

Take a look and modify as you see fit!
