How do you identify which model of T25 you have?

Postby Fun. » 16 Aug 2018, 16:17

Hi All

So far you have all helped me identify the fact I have a water cooled T25 (I thought it was air cooled), how do I tell what model it actually is, I get confused with all the different types out there? I know it's not an original conversion and looks like an old custom interior but I'd like to get to know my van a bit better hence why I'm asking.

Hopefully you have some good tips, I've been looking at https://www.coolairvw.co.uk/Information ... ation.html and am kind of none the wiser.

Cheers

Fun.

Start with the "white sticker" below the dash (on the crash beam, about knee height) which will tell you quite a lot, the VIN plate will also tell a tale.

As Mr Honda, originally of motorbike fame, said , "All engines are air cooled, just that some people insist on putting water in the way... :rollin

Looks like a home brew/diy interior with a Sheldon roof. Does it have a night heater?
Does the dh on the vin plate represent the engine code?
Also not a good idea to have a fuel filter in the engine bay, should be after the petrol tank.

You don't need instructions on how to remove a fuel filter surely.

Is there instructions anywhere?
