Dang! Never heard of a rear bar breaking. Everything’s getting old on these rigs.Pat KKeymasterNovember 10, 2019 at 9:05 amPost count: 1410
“Truly” overload was probably the cause.

we could send ya torsion bar.. Be nice to know what color yours are?? . And no you can do the job without all the fancy tools… Take three axle tube to spring plate bolts out and the lower shock mount… and you will be able to get the tire off without a porta power… down and out the back… It would be nice to know what angle they were set at and use an inclinometer to get it close.. other wise you will be doing it a few times to get it level… 😎unkParticipantNovember 12, 2019 at 10:29 amPost count: 385
Truth be told, I am not sure what broke. But all visible things look fine…so I guess its the torsion bar. I do know that under full-loading, we heard a “POW” very loudly…I can only guess its the torsion. Hey John, that would be great if you could box one up and send it. Let me know what you need and I will paypal you. We set this swing arm at -6 degrees (or was it positive 6 degrees) as I recall. I think I will still buy those tools……good reason to get them.John JonesKeymasterNovember 12, 2019 at 11:46 amPost count: 6688
I could probably do that for ya… 😎 Do you happen to remember what color yours were? Orange or black? probably orange I am guessing.. the diff is 1 ton option.. I think trucks and commercials got them… passenger busses got the orange one’s… does that sound right?
There’s that spare wheel for the vert also… You want the torsion bar soon? We could send just that now, and the wheel when Franz sends you that mirror… sound good??unkParticipantNovember 12, 2019 at 12:06 pmPost count: 385

I don’t remember those being orange when I pulled them out but I wasn’t paying too much attention. Can you send me both? and I will send the wrong one back. You guys can keep the rim for something in the future too. I would think this is an original Kombi that was used for groceries…….so if you need to send one, just send orange. Keep the rim. Thanks so much, john.John JonesKeymasterNovember 13, 2019 at 6:47 amPost count: 6688

What the hell are we going to do with one custom wheel?Baja MarkParticipantNovember 13, 2019 at 12:36 pmPost count: 449Critter1ParticipantNovember 14, 2019 at 2:56 pmPost count: 226unkParticipantMarch 1, 2020 at 12:30 pmPost count: 385
Just a little update. Restored the semaphores, stripped dash back to original paint.
And oh ya. I’m gonna ship that torsion bar and a few bucks to you. When in Colorado, I installed the right spring plate upside down (notch was downward). so the grooves barely were hooked onto the torsion bar since they were on outer half. So, the spring plate slipped off of the grooves created that issue I took it apart, flipped spring plate and it was fixed quickly.
Ordered new windows rubber and felt and gonna fix drivers door that has a janky busted hinge Gotta wait for another 50 degree day thounkParticipantMarch 9, 2020 at 8:07 pmPost count: 385

I’m glad I didn’t know how monotonous this window rubber was before I started ……..or else I would have never done it. But now I’m in too deep. This is rubber for one bus door Jesus I have no idea how Kcw can install all this without killing a new paint jobFranzKeymasterMarch 20, 2020 at 8:54 amPost count: 3623
Haha! “You can do it” I remember hearing that many times last year.
Are you going to put the correct rivets in??!? 🙂
