http://www.oemepc.com is a good source of part numbers, selecting ZA and typ2 1995, although 2.5 engine is not covered - most parts are the same as 1995 2.3/2.6 although not front brakes and rear driveshafts (i think).

cool..got it. I guess in a nutshell,from the LUK kit:

  • The pressure plate in the kit will work just fine
  • the clutch plate/clutch friction plate will work somewhat but not fully engage
  • The release bearing will work

Cheers

I'm using BERU VK385S, VW 034905207B, distributor cap, and Beru 0300900096 (rev limited) rotor arm as that was what was already fitted.
Original rotor arm is 052905225C which is used on loads of VWs.

just to confirm...will the kit as it is work? i.e the clutch friction plate,pressure plate and even the release bearing?

*apologies for what may seem a silly question

Cheers.

Thank you marliinowner. Will have a look see if i can find the part number given. if not will go the audi route and see how that works out. If you and other have gone that route with minimal issues then i guess why not!;-)

I also have been checking for the rotor and distributor cap for it. The ones i see online seem a bit different. Do you have the part numbers for this too?

Cheers

The clutch parts are specific to the South African T3s, an Audi 240mm clutch with 24 splines will fit eg LUK 624083900 (Audi 200 2.1) but on the original clutch friction plate the centre boss is offset towards the gearbox - this means that the LUK kit (or other off the shelf clutches) will not fully engage on the input shaft splines.
I think many people use the Audi clutch kit with no problems, I had my original clutch refurbished but don't know if that route is open to you.

Hey guys...me and again. I am still overhauling the engine and managed to get parts from ECS tuning and buycarparts.co.uk. Still waiting for them to arrive and i hope they arrive as expected. I am assured they are from OEM suppliers therefore i expect many years of trouble free service once i am done!!

Another question, anyone with the part numbers for the pressure and clutch plate (pressure plate and clutch kit maybe)for this engine/microbus? Now that i am doing the overhaul , i may as well get all doubts out of the way.

Cheers.

The ring part number I gave is specced at 82.5, 1.5, 1.5, 2.0 and is used on SA T3 2.3 and 2.6 as well as 7a, is it different to AAY?

[QUOTE=monkslayer] As for the rings, I need them like yesterday. ;-)

Just seen that you are in Kenya. Best bet is to get the rings directly from VW South Africa.

[QUOTE=monkslayer] Does that mean that the piston rings, crankshaft main bearings and cylinder head gasket are the same as the 2.5 AAY? 
[/QUOT

7a all the way except for the rings as they are different.

Try gsf using 7a engine code. As for rings, when do you need them as I have 2 sets back in the UK.

Eurovan is US name for T4, 2.5 petrol engine is code AAF, it's not the same as the South African AAY. Bore is 81mm.
The part numbers I gave were from the South Afrcan T3 2.6 litre engine which replaced the AAY and is better documented. It has the same bore at 82.5mm, as does the 7a 20v 2.3 Audi engine.
