Yesterday, 10:39 PM

The 411 uses standard shock absorbers, not McPherson struts !  Going by your description of "finding a strut" .

Also, the 411s have an under hood rain fall drain at both ends of the air intake box for the heater assembly.  If you do not have the fabric drain hose extension from this intake box to the sheet metal "clamp" at the bottom of the firewall, and have a slight intake manifold gasket leak, you will be sucking exhaust gases into the heater box.  Yes, this will give a very noticeable exhaust smell.  If missing the hoses, early VW heater hoses are almost the correct diameter and can be secured to the sheet metal drains with screw  type hose clamps.  If you come to the 15 September JCCS I will show you my setup using these hoses.

In Topic: 510 carpet kits???

17 June 2018 - 08:58 AM

JCWhitney carpet kits can match the texture and color of factory carpets.  The difference is that the front carpet is 3 piece [L / R / and transmission tunnel] rather than a heat formed one piece.  Good luck !  They also offer snap fasteners that mate with the factory floor fasteners that were installed at manufacture.


In Topic: '72 510 wagon sticking with 13x5.5 wheels - what size tires?

Your existing tires will fit the 5.5 width wheel just fine. And your speedometer will not give false speed readings.
