You MUST run HP1 (high pressure)or equivalant.. and when you start it, DON't let it rev real high.. or it will BLOW the filter or seal.. Which is VERY hard with your engine.. it's a rappy bitch.. it wants to REV!!! We changed the oil to 30wt before it left.. cause it was fine starting it inside the shop, but if we started it outside.. with the 20/50 it blew the seal...

To start your bus.. as with any engine with webbers... Before you even turn the key,, pump it about 8 times.. Then get it going anf don't let it rev, and warm it up for awhile...

I have done and gone through what you are many many times.. I always let em warm up and never rev em right off the bat..


thank you very much, the hp 1 is the one i ordered so hopefully it works out.your right it is hard to start it and not rev it she really want to go.
let ya know how it goes....
thanks john

I used to blow seals on the filter when it was cold on my 2275cc, then i got K&N oil filters and they have a deeper seal groove. haven't had a problem since changing to them.

i know i have said it before 100 times but damn do i LOVE my single cab!!!!it is my favorite v-dub without a doubt, i cant seem to find enough reasons to go for a cruise in it after i get home from work. i have been daily driving it all week although its pretty darn cold here inthe morning still, bout 5 to 10 degrees but the last couple days its been getting warmer.its one cold blooded SOB! so it takes lots of (want to) to get in it in the a.m. my wife and my son named it ollie so thats the new name.
hell yeah im glad i didnt trade it would have never forgiven myself for that one., but i really want a westy im thinkng thats gonna be my next project for you guys.its amazing how many people around have never even heard of or seen a single cab.everybody asks me if i made it myself or if it came that way. i did order a canvas and hoops for it so i should have that in about 8 weeks.
im gonna take some pics tonight and post em tomorow for you guys. thanks again for the kick ass ride!!!!!!!!!! i love it
