    Damn!!! Can’t believe you’re already done!!

    I’m just so happy it happened while Andy was still in town… but I know he’s gotta be ready to push this thing off a cliff!! 🙈🙈🙈 he was probably ready to do that one of the several other times he’s worked on it..🙈🙈

    Thank you for always being willing to help and take care of the job right away… I super appreciate it!!!
    Andy rocks!!

    Just had my three year anniversary for my engine swap weekend before last. Haven’t had an engine issue in those years. Just the one transmission problem I had to remove the engine for. I can’t figure why the bad luck with this one. Hopefully this engine that seemed dead, is now right for a long service life. Andy will get it right.

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

    sorry for the lack of posting!!

    The morning after I drove my van home there was a big puddle of gas all over the ground…🙈 Turns out when my dad fixed the gas tank it jostled a tube on the other side, so he replaced that…and now we are golden!!!

    The van has been doing great! Been driving it all over town!! My Dad drove it around like a race car and it did great then too 😅😅 it’s been fucking cold here the last several days too and it starts up no problem 😁👍🏻

    hoping to take it on a little road trip tomorrow 😎

    What a wild ride!! Good times at KCW!! JJ and GJ, Franz and Pat are some of the best people around!! I love Audrey’s positive energy levels.

    The drive home made my butthole pucker, the snow in Utah was something I’ve never experienced.

    Goldie the vanagon…anyone remember the skulls and cross bones that were on it??i think it’s haunted.

    I’m sure it’s gonna let this motor loose at some point. JJ and I can hear something going on but it works.

    What happened with the motor I rebuilt..only thing I can really figure out is the oil pick up tube and oil pan are too close to each other. I’ll look at that this week.

    i already got a couple more things I’m gonna change next visit to KCW.

    Audrey, did you say JJ was racing the vanagon??

    Do something

    That return line I took off when we dropped the tank decided to crack and leak after being disturbed..  Easy fix…

    I drove the shit out of it around here.. Race car style!!  😎

    I got to experience that “bucking” as Audrey call’s it…   it feels like.. it’s changing circuits, jets… or timing is moving around a little…??  If you give it more or less gas it goes away…   weird… not constant.. hard to get it to do it again.. but when it does…. it does buck like it’s not getting gas or the tiing is shooting up or something…    Andy did you ever notice it??

     

    Runs great..

    Na, I didn’t rail on it. It’s a 5500 pound pig, no racing it for me.

    Spark plugs? I once had the wrong spark plugs in a Chevy truck, and it would crap out after a while when driving/fall on its face/buck.

    Those plugs were new in January when I did the heads.

    Do something

    making up for my lack of posting with some pictures!! Been too busy enjoying my van out in nature!! Lots of hikes, and a night of attempted camping where we decided we kinda want a heater this late in the year 🤣

    oh yeah, JJ found a secret race track newly built behind the shop and decided to race it around 😅 thank goodness we didn’t tip over!🤣

    the bucking doesn’t happen when racing around… randomly happens just driving down the road every once and while… sometimes I think it is cold related, but it occasionally happens even when it’s not too cold… I don’t know what it is but I can make it go away. it’s also been dripping a bit of oil when I park it overnight… but the oil level is staying good, no lights on…my dad looked around under it and said everything seems ok too.

    Overall, it’s driving just great for me!!! Maybe it’s just being a Volkswagen?! 😁
