RE: [T3] Engine Seal and ....

As far as I understand the Beetle has a 'ducted outlet' system & the Type 3
a 'ducted intake'. This means the Type 3 will overheat without the rubber
fan intake bellows in place - am I correct.

Now a question I have wondered about for a long time -
In a Type 1 Baja Bug conversion I think the cooling system is compromised &
will not work as well as VW intended it too  - same with a Buggy with a Type
1 or Type 3 motor in it (The hot air will just circulate). I have always
thought that motors in these vehicles will overheat & fail prematurely (I
have never seen a Baja Bug or a Buggy with a temp gauge fitted !) Is my
thinking correct ? Any other opinions?
