Picked up a reduction box tranny last week for $100!!! Nice to see one getting pulled out of a Baja and getting put back into a Splitty!!!
Rusty.. You have me thinking about doing reducs in my baja now… 🙂 🙂 🙂 We have a “Lay back” kit… I wonder if it raises it too?? I wonder what that tranny has inside… it was obviously BUILT with those sweet chrome parts!JWDIIParticipantSeptember 1, 2017 at 10:06 amPost count: 374

We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantSeptember 6, 2017 at 7:14 pmPost count: 1698
I know I’ve said this before and I’m going to see it again Guys because it applies to all of us! CHECK YOUR FUEL LINES!!!!!!!!!!!The carbs on my single cab always leak a little gas so I expect a little fuel smell but last week it was stronger than usual so finally I lifted my deck lid and noticed that one of my fuel lines need to be replaced BADLY!!! 😥 😥 had to buy $4.50 a foot fuel injected line at Orielly cuz that’s all they had but WAY cheaper than a new Rig!!!!John JonesKeymasterSeptember 7, 2017 at 7:21 amPost count: 5844
Damn I miss this place.
I would be lying through my teeth if I said I didn’t miss your help… 😉 😉 It was pretty sweet having a guy who showed up about 2 hours before me and started the day and was prepping and sanding when I walked in the door… Thanks for your years of service to the Volkswagen Trade! I imagine Nascar as been even more fun and eventfull than KCW…John JonesKeymasterSeptember 7, 2017 at 7:23 amPost count: 5844

I keep a bunch of fuel line in my bus.. extra filter, some clamps, both sizes of line etc… Yeah.. I’ve had it happen also… Thats how a lot of people end up with Hose clamps on their german line.. which it is not supposed to use.. I don’t use em.. unless I HAVE to..
I agree.. Check those fuel ines. OPEN your decklid at every gas stop… and you will usually catch it.. and Like Rusty said… pay attention to the smells and feels of your vw.. and you’ll be fine. 😉John JonesKeymasterSeptember 7, 2017 at 7:43 amPost count: 5844

I’m pretty sure its caused by the ethanol fuel blend that every gas station sells. I’ve noticed more problems with floats and fuel hose the last few years.
All you aircooled VW guys need to look for a gas station that sells ethanol-free gas.

Yup ethanol sucks donkey dong! You can get hose that is apparently resistant to the shit….the cloth braided “German” stuff doesn’t seem to last. Like u say cheap insurance, just change it every spring….can’t imagine standing on side of road watching one of my cars roast!JbParticipantSeptember 7, 2017 at 8:57 amPost count: 544
Also something nobody seems to talk about in Aircooled world is how much ethanol affects your tune, percentages are all over the map and when you jet/tune for one tank of gas and hit the next greedy wallet sucking station get a whole different cocktail of garbage. Almost always end up lean!
In my neck of the woods the higher the octane the less the ethanol….only fuel I’ll run in my 55 is chevron 94 they claims no ethanol…..love the way that shit smells ? It’s only $6.50-$7 a gallon ?JWDIIParticipantSeptember 7, 2017 at 9:05 amPost count: 374
Yep , ethanol sucks. I just paid 2.90 a gallon for ethanol free for my jetta and my 65. Fuel jumped 50 cents a gallon because…. HURRICANE!
Hey Pete and Scott and all you other lowland costal SC, GA, and FL guys. What’s your plans? You going to evacuate or try to ride it out. I got family from Myrtle beach probably coming inland to stay with us in the upstate. You all stay safe and we will be praying for you all.
Be safe and have a productive day folks!
