Questions about my TS

Hello - about ready to yank out my old motor, so I want the install to happen ASAP b/c the weatehr is so nice....

1) I need a wiring schematic - color wires for install, etc. Is there one online? I have the German manual, but don't speak german

2) I need a cover plate for the front dist. Where can I obtain one?

3) I believe the water pump will accept an old tach. I attached a pic and would appreciate opinions.

w00t

Here's pics....

There's manuals in English on my site.

Make a flat plate and seal it on. Put it on the rear if you're worried about the look.

on the water pump....

sure you can connect the cable to the pump, but does your front panel have the extension to actually drive the cable?

Is that inside the pump? How can I check?

Thanks!

remove the pump, you will see a small copper corkscrew vine that drives the cable. Otherwise a possibility would be to convert your rev counter to electronic, doing away with this stuff, and getting a FAR more accurate reading as well.

Meat pile,
I have an electronic tach from a late spider, I was saving it for my TS project but I think I'm going mechanical. I'd sell it, if you're interested.

To drive the mechanical tach you need the reduction sprocket that is part of the timing chain system. You can get a suitable one from any 2-liter, maybe other engines as well. If you go this route, you'll need to cut it back a little in a lathe to get it to fit proper. Check the description on Jim stecks autocomponenti page describing the swap.

Lathe. Yep I keep one in the drawer in my kitchen next to all my old cell phone chargers. It's a large drawer.

Just kidding. I contacted the PO and he said it's ready for a mechanical tach.

As for the plate cover for the distributor, anybody know where one can be purchased? Time ( and skills ) are limited. Unfortunate but true.

Hey Sono - this is Christian's old motor. His post/ad got deleted in the great board breakdown in January. I think I saw in the thread you had wanted it.

Yep, I did want it badly, unfortunately I had to back out because I needed to give some money to my daughter. Plus I really need to "trim the fat" around the garage.

Re. Lathes, I actually do have one IN my house, in my garage, and in my workshop. I use them far more than any single kitchen tool, and I like to cook!
Some people are just wierd like that...

Keep us updated.. it looks like you're making fine progress!
