    Random question. When I get in to drive this bus sometimes the green light doesn’t come on when I turn the key half way. It did it once and I just thought the bulb went out but then half the time it’ll come on before I start the motor. It hasn’t come on when I’m driving. Any ideas?

    Green is the oil pressure light, right? So it should only come on when you first turn the key to cold start it and turn off once you build enough oil pressure. If its coming on once the engine is running you’d need to add oil or look further into whats wrong. Idk if I answered your question ?

    …………. Its an early 59 built on Oct 22, 1958. It was delivered to San Fransisco, and it is actually a Single Cab that is m coded to be a double cab. I thought that was pretty cool. 

    That is super-EARLY…… that DC more than just “pretty cool”!!!

    It has  a single cab fresh air vent then? How about pop-out windows or are they stationary? Sounds like a prototype double cab.

    This Chewbacca Noise started when I was driving the DC yesterday. Any thoughts of what it could be? I thought maybe the pulley was slipping or something but that seems to be tensioned correctly.

    haha, can you repeat that noise?

    That is your fan rubbing is side of the housing. Check to make sure its not coming loose or something funny. You can usually correct by giving the fan shroud a good yank fore or aft to “bend” it into position. Or remove and re-shim the fan to generator.

    I also had that noise and it was the fan coming loose.

    Well… I needed to do an oil change and valve adjustment before heading to the camp out next weekend anyway. So I guess pulling the motor won’t be too much more… haha 1309EAE7-3528-4DBC-BCA9-EA3B71BBE1B1got some of the good stuff in the mail.52987053-E5D3-45F4-8603-0A6AF71B8770i also love using this bus to haul stuff for work! People never think a vw can be used like a real truck. Blows their minds
