The oil screen cover allows you to gain access to your oil screen and oil pick-up tube. The cover traps contamination so that it cannot re-enter the engine’s lubrication system. This plate also has the hole to install a drain plug. This is not always the case on drain plates, but it is a nice add on so the oil isn’t running down your arm while you are changing your oil! This drain plate doesn’t come with a drain plug. You will need to order that separately, part #113115193. Also available in chrome plated, use part #115201.
Note: This part is designed to be used on cars with 1200cc, 1300cc, 1500cc and 1600cc based motors installed in cars from 1961 to 1979. Will not work on 36 hp up to 1960.
Note: Understand that motors are very interchangeable on VW’s. Please ask questions and do your research to confirm that you have the style and size motor that you think you have. So Cal Imports cannot be held responsible for shipping cost for parts ordered incorrectly.
