Any sources in the UK, Australia, Japan, etc. for a RHD steering box for a '74 1303?

Did you try the Great Britain page over at http://www.AllAirCooled.com? That will give you access of all of the UK suppliers. VW Heritage has a unit for £434.50...

Gee, I feel stupid.  I had allaircooled as a favorite with my former browser and forgot all about it.  It'll take me days to go through all of the links but that's okay.  The VW Heritage unit is a pricey little bugger, isn't it?  I was hoping for something closer to US$400 than £400 but it's good to know they're available.  Thanks.

That does seem a bit pricey. Have you looked for a good used unit? There might be something over at http://www.thesamba.com

I had done a search there initially.  (There was a RHD rack there at the time oddly enough.)

During the past week, I was researching what red tape I needed to go through to import the RHD Super I wanted into the USA.

In an odd coincidence, I saw my former '71 1302 just a little more than a year in was totalled in a fire while looking up an importer.  The present owner has done a fine job making it roadworthy.  Later, I found out the '74 1303 was sold to another Brit.

It wasn't totally for naught.  Although I still need to find out cost and some other tiny details, I now know for future reference what I need to do should another opportunity present itself, and a source for a back-up box.

Thanks, everyone.
