Doug…retro sound arrived yesterday along with the rear window seal. Installed.
Those we’re last items as far as I know.
Come and get it! Bring a battery if you want to drive it home.

Working on Jim’s baywindow some more. I think I may have went to high school with this 1970 VW bus. Does Rasmussen ring any bells?
Anyways, the brake system was a whore to bleed. I found the Empi master cylinder had the piston/bleed port not aligned correctly, thus not allowing fresh brake fluid to be sucked through the front half of the system. I fixed it on the bench with some clever adjustments. Then power washed everything to prep for engine/alternator/clutch repairs tomorrow.John JonesModeratorJune 15, 2022 at 6:31 amPost count: 10870

Pulled the fan shroud and found more caked dirt/grease. So I did another power wash session.mtnbusParticipantJune 15, 2022 at 1:16 pmPost count: 1844

Engine stacked back together with a new alternator. I did a quickie rattle can job on the fan shroud, welded the thermostat flaps open, and replaced the oil cooler seals.John JonesModeratorJune 16, 2022 at 7:46 amPost count: 10870

New clutch, head torque, valve adjust, and added a draft tube type oil filler to help with case pressure/oil leaks. I just installed the engine.
a bunch of electrical repairs, a new battery cable, new light housing and a rigged battery stap.
