    I’ll be leaving here Monday the 2ed, then helping my parents at their new place for a few days. So later in the first week of September I’ll be at KCW.( 6th to 8th I’ll be free. )

    can I stay at KCW Friday night and Saturday, even if it’s the couch or JJ pamper??

    I fly back here on the 10th.

    Anything I need to address on this van?

    I’m glad you guys can feel appreciated through your belly’s- cause that’s the best way I can show it!!!😁😁

    Awesome Andy!! I just took her over to Boulder for a few days and did tons of driving and she did AWESOME!

    The only things I’d like you to double check I suppose… sometimes the idle seems really low(?) and the whole van shakes in slow motion almost, but that mostly happens when changing between altitudes so that may be no problem… the other thing is occasionally when driving uphill the power starts to cut in and out… it did this driving up to vail pass a few days ago… I didn’t have to pull over to make it up the hill, and no lights came on or anything… up vail pass is a big hill, but it has done this before going up minor hills around Denver/boulder as well… usually I pull over and give her a brake and all is fine again!

    Another issue… probably not for Andy to look at… but my fuel tank needs to be re-sealed 😬😬😬 right now I can get away with just not filling her up all the way, but If I forget and fill it up, tons of gas spills out under the van…

    Ok sounds good. I’ll bring some stuff to fix those issues.

     

    If you get a new gas tank there, I’ll swap it out while I’m there. Doesn’t matter to me, how old or new the vw is..just nuts and bolts.

    You probably dont need a whole new tank, you can just order a tank reseal kit and drop the current one and put new seals in it. Rocky Mountain Westy will have those, you’ll need to know what size filler neck you have.

    What’s the fuck…. well, I say we do a rebuild on a motor so we know it’s a fresh start. I can do it all here then ship it to KCW, then come out and swap it. Sound good JJ?

    That sucks. I’ve had zero issues with the most mysterious of mystery motors for three + years.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    It was popping when revving. Sounded like a exhaust valve seat to me.

    I’m sure a leak-down test would tell the tale.
