    I am having trouble locating new rear wheel brake cylinders for my 1984 Lafer. I think they are some sort of Type 3 wheel cylinders, but none I can find seem quite right.  Mine are 19.5mm bore, made by Varga, and have a VW emblem on them with what looks like part # 1056115771.

    While I am on brake topic…what year Ghia front disc brake calipers and rotors are used on our Lafers?

    I should also add that on the wheel cylinders that I am looking to replace that the brake bleeder screws are on top of the brake line threaded input.  The machined area where the bleeder screw is is stepped down a bit from the other surface.

    Not a Lafer owner, mine’s a Fiberfab kit, but am the owner of a 74 Ghia. For the brake calipers the biggest thing is whether you have the two pin or one pin caliper. Can’t be switching. As to what year your Lafer uses I’d say from 70 to 74.
