I just posted a question on thesamba regarding VW Type 3 front wheel 
cylinders. There are some photos there and I just want to know which part 
numbers these could be. Up thru '65, Type 3s had dual leading shoe front 
brakes, but there were 4 different versions of cylinders used. 

The first version was smaller diameter, for Notches and Ghias only, but after 
that, all of them are 22.2 mm (7/8").

The  _ & A versions have completely different plumbing and are 2 different 
sizes, so they are easily identified, but versions B & C seem to use the same 

If you're familiar with early Type 3 front brakes, check this out and leave your 
comments on thesamba.
