Someone with a '63 Notch sent me his front brake cylinders to work over, but 
we have a problem. These are supposed to be 22.2 mm (7/8") cylinders but 
one cylinder on each side was 20.6 mm (13/16".) To get this car back on the 
road, we need a replacement left and a right front cylinder that are at least 

The VW part numbers are 311 611 061A and 311 611 062A. Note that these 
are the VERY early style that have the ports for the connecting pipe pointing 
directly at the center of the axle.

I have all the parts except for the cylinder castings. I can replace everything 

Let me know if you have anything that can help keep this car on the road. 
We can pay reasonable prices for suitable cores.
