Cole has convinced me to make an account to keep you all updated. Here a couple photos from taking all my fat chick tin off to switch the oil cooler out a couple days ago. I shed a tear every time I take out a tin screw that took me an hour to put on. Thanks for letting me crash you’re house and tools Tony, I know it’s against your religion to have bay windows over. Much appreciated.

Switched out the oil cooler thanks to crashin cole. I wasn’t there yesterday so he messed something up and broke this piece off. Maybe why I’m getting some oil spraying up onto the back of my bus? He said it was really weird since we just replaced it. He said he barely touched it and it snapped off because it was so brittle.

Hard to tell if that’s actually cracked, or it just wasn’t installed properly to begin with? Either way, there are a lot of shitty ones on there market. Make sure your replacement is either NOS or made out of viton. I think Airhead parts has the viton versionmtnbusParticipantApril 15, 2018 at 12:19 pmPost count: 914

GUYS SHE LIVES!!! thanks Cole for helping and Tony for providing some shelter while we put the switcheroo back together. Also got the headbanger in and some headliner. Starting to feel like home 🙂 Also, took her for a test drive tonight. Feeling pretty good. Cant wait to bring her back to Moab, our true home!!

Awesome night! Glad I could help. Running pretty good! It’ll be good to drive it for the next week before Moab and work any kinks out if needed. That paint did shine up pretty well. Just enough for this bus??ColeBModeratorMay 6, 2018 at 11:09 pmPost count: 1391
So… this happened today. Emilee drove from salt lake to pick me up. We were going to do some climbing on the way home before she has to work on Tuesday. She said her bus ran great all the way to junction, but as she rolled in we noticed a good about of oil coming from the bell housing. Main seal. We pulled the motor and are waiting to get a couple seals tomorrow before we can slap the motor back in and cruise home. Hopefully we can find the parts tomorrow… ha
but there is is no better place in the world to have VW problems. Friends, food, shit talking and a bed! So much hospitality at hotel KCW.
We also took advantage of having the bus at kcw and installed a new battery tray, adjusted her brakes and e brake and tried to tie up any loose ends we have been chasing. Lots of fun! Thanks for all be help today guysPat KKeymasterMay 7, 2018 at 7:05 amPost count: 1172
Emilee and Cole kicked ass yesterday. Hope we can get those weird T4 seals today…?

Team work makes the dream work! Haha
we had an awesome drive yesterday! We camped near Price and her bus ran great! Beautiful camp spot. We woke up this morning and her bus wouldn’t start. Checked her points and they were really tight. Again. Weird. Adjusted those and were on our way. Super happy on the way home. But we got back into town and her bus was leaking oil out of the bell housing a bit again and out of maybe around the pulley? The fan was flinging a little bit around. Not a lot of oil. She was like 1/2 of a quart low when we got home. But it was dripping enough to worry about…. don’t know what’s up.RustabusParticipantMay 9, 2018 at 6:07 amPost count: 1762
I think your Bus is just leaving a trail so it can get back home!!!! It’s probably afraid that it is gonna get left out in the Utah Sun again and sit un-loved for years!!! 😉
