All right… We’re almost there Buddy!
Shifter rod cup front edge had worn away, pops out going into R,2, & 3 Welded and ground it back to shape. Works great now!!
Adjusted the drag link to center the steering wheel, then fit and installed the pedal pan.
Driver side taillight housing was missing the screw terminal wire connector. I had no luck finding one around here. Had to compromise and use a later model spade terminal.
Rear turn signals were acting up. Tracked it down to a broken connection in the t-signal switch. Black/red wire had broken loose, forgot to take that pic. Good to go now.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KModeratorMarch 29, 2021 at 7:26 pmPost count: 1876

Disassembled and carb dipped parts this morning. The fuel pump has an eroded outlet valve seat. I’m going to lap it flat.
Other parts looks great.
Funny full throttle stop rivet thing that keeps the butterfly from going fully open. Maybe because of the bus specific governor?

All rebuilt and ready to run. Fixed the valve in the pump and installed a new diaphragm.
The points in the distributor looked like new so I didn’t replace them. Set the gap to .016”. The vacuum can tested good. Everything cleaned/lubed, and a new o-ring.
The carburetor had a burned out choke….which is like a 67 only 12 volt ceramic style. I had to replace it with a 70’s metal style.(I saved old parts in a bag). Tested the electric choke and idle shut off valve. Ready to run.Pat KModeratorApril 1, 2021 at 7:42 amPost count: 1876
Wolfsburg West parts arrived Tuesday. Yesterday morning I replaced the crusty flap seal.
Click, click, click, closed.
Fresh cover seal also.
Buddy, did you make this rear defrost mod? I like it!!!
We were short a few panel screws also. Good to go now.

Any chance you can share what you used on the sunburned/rusty areas on the roof and nose etc?
Damn those tires are sweet, nice to see something other than Firestone’s
