    Parkway love yesterday. This โ€˜65 has been off the road for a while.ย 2020E5BD-E1E9-42DA-9F11-FCAA5B13991ADB394575-73EB-4C23-8510-AF4E19B13788E77C99BA-B753-4636-8206-D87CEEE3437FLeake down test shows she still has some life left.C1C4E665-58C6-4062-A263-EB5EB6278E5813C55E75-62EB-453C-894B-90C4406F86EA

    The fuel system is in rough shape. Carb was so varnished the throttle was stuck shut. Pulled it, tore down, and soaked it over night. Ready to come back from apart.ย A94C431E-6DC6-42A0-BA72-5195A76B02F6

    Few pics from Fridayโ€™s progress. Pulled and cleaned the gas tank.ย 4588F873-700D-448A-8748-5FBCB4EF9C42

    Pulled the motor for mount replacement. Pulled the flywheel to see why it was leaking. Main seal was ok, but the flywheel o-ring was missing.

    New front trans mount also.ย 7F0252DC-1E94-48C8-B756-5D95708157015EC3C920-966A-4A35-BCB4-AD6995D5CA35

    Assembled the carb, installed the motor. Fired right up.ย E370D2EC-1E43-4851-957F-6F3B2AA886A8

    Jimโ€™s turkis car that we painted a few years ago is here for a transaxle re-seal job.

    I ripped it all apart this evening, clean-up and assembly tomorrow.

    Replaced the rear brake hard line this morning. Went for a test drive.

    Front brakes wouldnโ€™t release completely. New front wheel cylinders and hoses and sheโ€™s good to go.ย 20387FFE-6A6A-4A57-BD98-A0A495C5432B

    Contacted Eric, the owner, let him know where heโ€™s at. Suggested a few more things that should be addressed. Time to order some parts.ย 0032CDE3-6054-426B-B168-CE5C2498F499

    There always seems to be a shit ton of VWs ย in yโ€™allโ€™s area. Are most of these that come in for work from GJ or other towns away?

    Yeah there are a few bugs running around. We had a dealer in this town forever.

    I spent a bunch of time cleaning parts today, then assembled the transaxle with new seals and plenty of ๐Ÿคซsilicone.

    That project Franz is on is a PITA project…ย  ย Possibly one we should have said no to.. but only time will tell… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Franz wanted him to have the trans rebuilt with some fresh parts and bearings… Now he has a reseal with all the same old pars in it….. ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  and probably be only a few hundo cheaper…

    “The customer is always right” ๐Ÿ™‚ even when they are wrong ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the dude is planning to flip Jim’s Turkis car…probably in the $20K range, which is still cheaper than the paint job was. Is anybody interested? I could pass a phone number along.

    I assembled everything into the 62 turkis and did an alignment yesterday. That was a good job. I had fun. 23 hours of work for a transaxle clean and re-seal.

    Next up is the Java green 67, it has an oil leak too. Plus, a list of other items that donโ€™t function correctly like the door locks and seat belts.
