It’s a useful, cheap and easy mod for sure

Very nice indeed, thanks for sharing.
I did have a WUR from a UR quattro in bits in the last month as it was not holding a vacuum, I could not fully dissemble at that time but this helps as I did not know about the rivets, the loss of vacuum was caused by corrosion between the large flat silicon gasket and the main alloy body of the WUR, you can see the corrosion in the photos you have posted.

That got cleaned with a green pad and then had a hot bath in the ultrasonic cleaner.
I do have a cheap vacuum gauge (used for balancing carbs back in the day and where consistency rather than accuracy is the thing) and I used that to confirm that it was holding a vacuum (I pinched the hose upstream of the guage and turned the engine off)
Due to the fact that I don’t trust the guage, I used the non vacuum specs provided by Mike as my benchmark

Having seen the quality of the bits and instructions, this wouldnt phase me now
