Subject: oil cooler and cooling tin screws



JamesJ=> oil cooler for a Squareback ( or any type 3 ). I know I need a 
      => new one 'cause the old is covered with crud.

My rebuilder routinely reconditions these and keeps them in stock, as 
will any competent establishment, so it shouldn't be too difficult to 
find one in the Lost Wages area, I'd think. But before you go looking 
again, make sure the old one is really toast. Soak it in a solvent tank 
for a couple of days, pump solvent through it (*against the normal oil 
flow*), get the crud off the fins and dry it off. Then, using solvent 
carefully, see whether it's blocked or leaks. They don't usually fail.

=> cooling tin screws where can I find these.

West Coast Metric will sell you a very pretty package of bright chrome 
ones. When pretty doesn't matter, I get mine from Ace Hardware. Standard 
stuff. Hint: the hex-head ones work a *lot* better than the slotted 
heads.

=> I want to make sure I get a lot of the parts before I get the engine 
=> rebuilt.

That's wise. Just be careful about buying stuff you don't need over 
subtle stuff you *do* need (spoken from recent regrettable experiences).
