    Love the bug, drove it the other day and thought it was awesome and couldn’t be happier or more fun to drive, but thought Franz might be able to fine tune it a bit so I asked him to drive it a bit and make a “ To Do List” on things to address. Well as soon as I saw the list I just asked Franz “KCW” to start from the top and work his way down!

    Well the list is done and it’s time to celebrate! New tranny, engine swap to a 1914, new door rubber and window seals and a list from Franz completed. Can’t wait, to park the bus and make this my daily! As always KCW is simply the best,  good people, great knowledge and quality work.

    I’ll need a new fuel pump again, first. Went to work to get my paycheck and she died and left me stranded. 😠😡☹️ Had to call the wife to come get me. But I know I have a couple in the bus at home,  one new one and a used emergency back up one. So I’ll swap it out in the morning and I should be good. 🙏🙏🙏

    Sounds like vapor lock.

    Let me guess, you drove your aircooled car 15 minutes across town during the hottest time of day on the hottest day of the summer, went inside for about 5 -10 minutes, and then it wouldn’t start.

    The heat in the engine bay spikes when you get it to operating temp, then park it. Causing the fuel in the hoses to boil and flood the carbs.

    Try opening the deck lid to let the heat out if you’re only going to park it for 5 minutes.

    Congrats on Petes Bug!  He loved that car, that was his keeper.  I saw it a few weeks ago and wondered what would become of it.  It will be perfect match as well.

     

    Let me know if you want to sell that wheel. sure would like to have the  complete set 😛
