    Finalized the light wiring, and installed the apron, new bumper bracket, and old bumper. All bolted together just fine, and not welded to the frame this time.๐Ÿ˜Ž I cleaned the oil bath air filter and started the engineโ€ฆFound the fuel pump was leaking and the distributor vacuum can not holding. Installed a new pump and 009 distributor, and I had that engine running just like song.

    The test drive went well except the brakes were dragging. It looked like the caliper hoses were way-old and swelled closed. I stayed late and swamped the hoses+bleed brakes. All good now.

    I have a couple items to do in the morning, and see if I can get the fuel gauge functioningโ€ฆIโ€™m betting itโ€™s a bad sender in the fuel tank, which would require removing the engine to get at.

    Parkway love for Kylieโ€™s beetle today. This one has been ongoing one for awhile. Just about finished up.

    Sanded, masked, and epoxy sealed the repaired areas.ย 7495E453-F74F-490D-8A85-83B0551EE9812EAE9E72-E09C-485B-BF7E-C3BC14978F7A

    Just finished paint. Bit of sanding/buffing and assembly to go before sheโ€™s heads home.ย ABB0DEEB-44B4-4E35-9C9B-B3F227EB865B49AABDDA-DA7F-4485-8C72-B19469116AC5A29CF62D-29F9-48B3-9363-AD41500518EC

    Danโ€™s bus had a swivel valve adjuster break. Weโ€™ve had a lot of problems with these lately. I swapped them all back to stock adjusters with lash caps on the valve stems. Ready to go again.

    If it isnโ€™t one thing itโ€™s another., ย  Always chasing the weakest link… ย Dan will be happier..

    next time I do maintenance on my bus, I plan on trying to ditch the empi swivels.. ย or change them every oil change! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
