Made it down to adjust my valves. Then took it for a cruise. It went smooth my bus rips. So much fun to drive. Not sure what I do without Kcw around. So much knowledge and cool dudes I am ready for the Utah classic here we come

Noticed when I got back form Utah last weekend I had a tranny leak. Tranny still pulls hard and sounds ok besides reverse is whining but that's normal. I was hoping to replace the seals on the sides and stop the leaking. Or do I pull it and send it to get rebuild. It's the stock tranny I believe.

Sounds good to rebuild it. What's the price on a rebuilt bay window teams from Rc trans. If I could fix the leaks I think it would be fine. Has only popped out of gear once or twice. On my road trips.

You can replace the axle output seals pretty easy with the trans in the bus. But I'm with John. Have it gone through, with some gear changes made for better highway cruise. I just had my trans guy here do a type I total rebuild with lots of improvements to gearing and strength for $1500.00. Bays are going to be more. Write down your questions on paper, call Rancho, and get a quote.

Here is my guy's number; 520-762-8518. his name is Jim. Had his own trans shop back east, but now is retired and works out of his garage. Very nice set up and experienced in VW. Wouldn't be much difference shipping it here versus Vegas.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

I'm with Ben, put a taller ring and pinion in your trans for interstate driving. The bad, is that it will probably bog-down that 1776cc. You'll be wanting a stroker engine next.

Or a subaru. :-#

Was up. I am having withdrawals from my bus. It's at Kcw it need the leaky tranny fixed. But trying to save all my $$ for a 58 ragtop that I almost got hooked just need to reel it home. Is Kcw ready to build a 58 ragtop. Fuckyea I have this problem of answering my own thoughts. Wife is pissed she says no more vws but I only got one. She's crazy. But I don't have any space to work or store my vws. So I am kinda fucked
