I'm trying to register my 1981 2wd dual cab ute
It's fitted with borbet rims and I'm trying to get it passed inspection but I'm struggling to establish the GVM as the car was originally imported from the UK and has no aluminium plate riveted to it.
Does any one out there have a dual cab t3 and able to tell me it's GVM? I had a air cooled caravell wreck out back that had a plate referencing 2310kg as its GVM.
I'm being told by the mechanic performing a road worthy that I req wheels rated to 577kg if using the above GVM.

The sales brochures of that era specify the GVM. Do a search/
I have been installing my new fuel tank and it is all done apart from
the filler and filler neck (trying to find an 80mm dia hole saw).
In doing that and previous testing, I have noted my centre drive-shaft
was making a clanging noise.
After checking and tightening lots of other things, I removed the drive
shaft and took it for a drive - no more noise.
The front of the shaft has good easy movement but the rear only moves
freely in one direction with the other direction seized up.
I know these uni-joints can be replaced cheap but does anyone have one
they are not using that works?
Let me know.
Hey Scot. I had my drive shaft rebuilt 4 years ago with cheap universals. Got about 60k before flogged out. With your extra power from subi 6 might be carefull with cheapies. Think mine were massey ferguson pto shaft unis. 20 bucks each v's 200 bucks each genuine vw. Remember a post a few years ago using ford unis was successfull..
My long range tank was installed 2001 by Frontline On the drivers side using the 2wd filler cap position. They routed the filler pipe through the chassis and doing so removed half the chassis number stamped on the cross rail. Bit of a drama getting that one sorted. Good luck .Bill
I have heard of lots of problems with the cheap unis.
