All new fag bearings front and rear. The good/expensive stuff. Should last another 50 years.
Ready to install the transaxle. 4.12 r&p with .82 4th. Will cruise nicely. Seamless axle boots too.
Rebuilt and tested wiper motor.
New wire harness from Wolfsburg West. Super good instructions.
Check out the date and old address on this WW invoice. 23 year ago. Before WW was a major parts supplier. Wild Bill has been working on this truck for a while.Paul SextonParticipantFebruary 20, 2018 at 3:04 pmPost count: 87
I can’t look at this truck and not smile. Unless you’ve done it before, it’s hard to describe how good it is watching this truck come together. Y’all ROCK!!!WillyModeratorFebruary 20, 2018 at 3:43 pmPost count: 1025FranzKeymasterFebruary 21, 2018 at 9:15 amPost count: 3363

Pat is very optimistic… I like it… 😎FranzKeymasterFebruary 21, 2018 at 3:52 pmPost count: 3363
I washed the rattle can paint off of the steering box and painted it up proper with some single stage urethane.
We need wheels to drive. I painted them just now. They look great.
All the OG hardware ready for install. Pat has had a fun day.

It was a great day of assembly on this rig. We got all the suspension and brakes done. Pictures first thing in the morning.John JonesKeymasterFebruary 23, 2018 at 5:20 amPost count: 6326
The boys are kicking ass on this assy!!!! wow!!! Where else can you get the kind of experience in assembling a bus?? No where.. No one builds as many busses as KCW…. Period. We have a process…. and it works… 😎FranzKeymasterFebruary 23, 2018 at 8:21 amPost count: 3363
We’ve had a few chances to get good at this.
Tires getting mounted today.
New hoses, lines, shoes, springs, cylinders. This machine may be a 1960 but its really a 2018.
Lift mates? Do you want the nose emblem yellow like beatrice?
New Bosch starter with 2 year warranty.
Fully painted shift rod with new hardware and boots.
New German single circuit master/res/switch. I like to keep the originally spec’d parts on stock builds. All new lines/hoses ensure there is not a weak rusty one waiting to pop.
New t/o bearing. The good one. should last.
