Worked on Zoeys ride yesterday. The brakes sorta worked.
Decided to replace the rear wheel cylinders. Pass side had a snapped off bleeder figured it may be the cause trapping air in the wheel cylinder.
Those helped but did not fix it all the way. MC was the root cause. Fresh one in. Brakes work great!
Slipped the new speedo cable in and adjusted the front wheel bearings also.
We will build it if it comes.68tintopParticipantAugust 11, 2022 at 6:58 amPost count: 1001

Made it home last night in Zoey’s bug. I had a vapor lock. Issue when I stopped in rifle for gas. I put in a few gallons and it would start. Fuel was bubbling in the filter. Took a 30 min smoke break and she fired up. Runs great pulled 60 uphill on the way home.mtnbusParticipantAugust 14, 2022 at 8:05 amPost count: 2300

Fixed the the blinker switch that wasn’t too bad just needed some fine tuning!! Went for lunch and franz noticed a noise coming from the tunnel. He say it’s broke free inside the tunnel. He said I need to cut a whole the size of a piece of bread so he can weld up a bracket that holds my shifter linkage thingy.

Nice work Jesse! Seems like every bug needs that job done at some point. Zoey has a sweet first car!FranzParticipantSeptember 5, 2022 at 3:00 pmPost count: 5403
We messed with the 30/31 pict 1 carburetor for a few hours yesterday. Setting float height and jets. Ended with a 60 idle, 130 main, 60 accl nozzle to get the 1776cc running sweet with the merged exhaust header. Probably the best engine combo for simplicity and power.
Zoey really has great little car.RustabusParticipantSeptember 5, 2022 at 8:18 pmPost count: 3145
Yup! Can’t wait to see her try to roll in a vintage VW instead of a lame ass normal cheap unbreakable Japanese automatic sedan!!! For Sure she wants that on her list of struggles learning to drive, live life, and growing up!!!! C’mon Jesse, call these dumb toys yours….. We love em but don’t give the Girl a burden….. Give her yer Truck and drive the Fun/Eclectic/ Stupid shit yourself!!!
