All,
Wow this looks cheap or am I missing something besides shipping costs?

OK, let’s cool it!! 

The original VW design being referred to must be the wire cable operated decoupler that was produced for a short time before they went to the VC drivetrain.

It would be really useful if someone could attach dates and numbers produced to the pre-VC production.

Phill,

Attached is a drawing of a decoupler with part numbers – could this be the “original VW design” referred to?

Yurik,

That is the vacuum actuated decoupler.  I might have some information on the cable operated decoupler somewhere; I will have a hunt for it.

Hello everyone,

I would like to make a comment about the decoupler from USA.
The picture from "TheSamba" Site looks like identical to the one I bought from "Syncro Services" in Germany. You can just see the needle bearing for the drive pinion and also the little centralising tube.
My guess is that he was able to buy the decouplers from the same factory as "Syncro Services".

My german Transporter book tells me, up to 11/90 you could buy either the VC coupling or the decoupler for the Syncro.
However,on the SYNCRO.ORG site: http://www.syncro.org/disengager.shtml
it tells a different story. (It never made it into production).

Cheers,
Theo
Is anyone running one of these usa decouplers,because they are still dearer than the ones you can get from South Africa but,the SouthAfrican ones require machining of the nose cone.Does anyone know who can do this machining and how much it is worth.You can get one from the Syncro Hospital for about 2G Oz.Anyone who has bought one from either country let us all know,as the way the dollar is it is a good time to get one.If the yank ones are any good,I suspect it would be better to go one,I dont know?Can anyone help.

I have a Tom Lengyel. It came complete with the nose cone. Have had
it 5 years and still seems to be working OK. I could have sent my
nose cone back but I never got around to it. At the time I bought it
I think the A dollar only got me about 50 cents or so US. Typical bad
timing on my part. Mine doesn't have the needle bearings like the
others seem to have now and appear to be preferable.

Hi there,

We are running a Syncro Services decoupler from Germany which, as Theo points out, may be the same as those advertised on The Samba in the US. At current exchange rates, they are worth just over $1K. Shipping costs to and fro were relatively low (nose cone sent sea mail via Australia Post). So far so good on the performance front. My experienced VW mechanic seemed to think it was a good piece of kit.

Hartmut, Syncro Services do charge a cheaper rate for customers outside the EU, i.e minus VAT, by the way.

Cheers and Chrerry Mistmas all.

Francesca.

I think what happened to me was that the our dollar shot up against the US and so I wouldn't have got as much as I originally paid for the nose cone. So I thought I would wait till our dollar went the other direction but when that happened I didn't get around to sending the nose cone back.

Five or so years ago, we did a group purchase of decouplers from Germany .  These were complete kits, starting from the nosecone and including vacuum actuator, plumbing and vacuum valve.  I have lost track of who got them but I believe that all were fitted.  They were all the needle roller type.

 

I haven’t been following this thread but Mike Plompen (busman.be) is selling a similar kit for Euro 795 but based on a change-over nose cone.

 

Regarding the factory (cable operated) decoupler, I have unearthed some information that I will post tomorrow.

Is there enough people in the group now who are keen to do a group purchase of decouplers?I am ready to go.Anyone else?

I am keen too Ben but I have this nasty big tax bill holding me up - not to mention the overly expensive wife and kids.
 
It wont be till after Christmas anyway.
 
Let everyone know when you are going to do it though - this US one seems like a good deal.

Scott,I will be doing it straight after Christmas,as it is the first thing that I am doing in my build up/conversion.
I also have the minister of finance and or the oposition leader bugging me too.One kid and one on the way.Been working 55+hrs to stash some cash.It will kill me,but I will have a very good Syncro to carry my coffin to my grave!

Someone better contact the US decoupler supplier & find out when new decoupler stock is arriving. May be a longer wait anyway.

I also have the minister of finance and or the oposition leader bugging me too.One kid and one on the way.Been working 55+hrs to stash some cash.It will kill me,but I will have a very good Syncro to carry my coffin to my grave!

This particular decoupler vendor is friend and fellow enthusiasts. He is about 10 miles away from me. Florian has done at least one previous group buy on the international Syncro List and also on the Vanagon List. Flo is due to move to Oregon. For now he is in Berkeley, California. He does make frequent trips home to Germany. Ferrying T3 Syncro parts help defray the cost of travel. The man is also busy working as an architect.
Coincidentally, Tom Lengyel is also a pal and longtime acquaintance. As far as I hear, Tom is doing more work for people like GoWesty so his prices are slightly higher. I have a tel# for him as well but he is hundreds of miles away from me. Besides, when he and brother Adam aren't playing with their Syncros, they donate their time perfoming dental work in faraway places. The rest of time is spent scuba diving.=)
Both guys are reliable and trustworthy. Tom has about a decade more experience with decouplers but as some have noted, Flo's decouplers are from same source as Syncro Services. If were buying a decoupler, I would be buying from Flo for availability and cost reasons. Besides, we've bought T3 parts from each other before.
Regards,
BenT

No the VC was from start of production. Manually operated was an option throughout production.
