    I ordered tie rod from CB Performance a while ago. I know they take a little time to process/ship orders….I hope they arrive in the next few days so that I can send this Java 67 home.

    Got word that CB Performance shipped the parts today.

    Original 67 seat belts would ratchet tighter and tighter with every bump. Not sure if they are broken or that is the design? Replaced with non-retractable lap belts.

    67 only apron plug is like $15 from WW. Very important for summer time over-heating problems.

    Cleaned and installed the original oil bath air cleaner with new pre-heat hoses.

    Air Force 1 is here for a disc brake conversion, new tie rods, new starter, rear suspension adjustment….and whatever else I can find.

    Bosch Mexico starter is pricey. I feel better about the quality.

    Yep, the rear brakes are shot. See the fluid and rust under the boot?42657103-A81A-40FB-A073-5868ABD3C9EA

    The rear suspension is crappy too. The bushings are beat….which probably caused the torsion cover to crack.

    Super beetles always have sagging rear suspension. I took this apart to re-index to torsion bars back to stock ride height…I added 5 degrees ~ 1.250” lift.
