So that was a “go ahead” and order a 1914cc long block from painters? How about the transaxle? Does jj want to give up the used one he got from Wren…or should we get a new one built? Then I’ll need to spend a couple weeks assembling and preparing said parts for install. For this 3 day build I should have the beam, transaxle, and engine fully assembled and ready to install when you arrive.
honestly, im still trying to focus on getting that vert done before ramping this up……unless we need a lead time to order the long block.
Also, John u wanna sell me that tranny?
when u have a minute Franz send me ur thought on this bus. I want to do the minimum so i can keep the bus value “in the money”.
Once bus is delivered, lets make a shopping list and then we can place orders.
I guess, no matter what, we need a bigger power plant…..so order the long block. Let me know what i owe ya for that.
Actually, also order the tires too since we can see what they look like on the vert. Maybe put spacesAvers on bus??FranzKeymasterJune 14, 2019 at 9:57 amPost count: 3532
Yeah, that is pretty much what I’m thinking. The space savers would look the sickness on pgsg. Painters was 6 weeks out the last time I talked to them. So I’ll get the engine going. Gather cooling tin A1 exhaust, brand new 40 webers, heater boxes. etc.John JonesKeymasterJune 14, 2019 at 11:43 amPost count: 6545

Either one of these kits. The wagens west stuff is def nicer and has vented rotors but double the price.
For the rear brakes, the trans we are using already has good beetle stuff…all we need to do is buy some nice original 4 lug drums off of samba and I can re drill for 5/130 Porsche pattern.FranzKeymasterJune 20, 2019 at 8:26 pmPost count: 3532
