    Yeah, I got a bit more of a surprise than I was expecting when we started to dig into my Busโ€ฆ.. I was hoping for a brake job and overall tuneup but as soon as we really started to dig in Franz noticed my oil cooler was leaking pretty bad, so we pulled the motor and then noticed that the crank was extra wobblyโ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜• Bad News!!! But Iโ€™m in the BEST PLACE for bad VW news๐Ÿ‘ Motor is already stripped down and on a pallet headed over to Painters!!!! Pretty much dodged a bullet, my throw out bearing was on its last leg too๐Ÿ˜• Iโ€™m sure I was due for a break down this Summer in a really inconvenient spot!!!!๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Baja RIPPED ย home! ย Thanks!!!!!!! Well, actually itโ€™s slow as hell up the hills as usual but since Iโ€™m running a little 1600 with big knobby tires, a huge roof rack and lots of gear itโ€™s pretty zippy!!! Kinda wanna run up some Spring melt muddy roads outside of town!!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Good news! The lock-up issue must have been that crappy float filling a cylinder with fuel.

    Sorry about white lightening. I hope we can get it back together in time for Moab.

    Found some large 12โ€ ย frogger stickers for the race car paint scheme weโ€™re going to do.

    BADA440E-C264-49B2-B539-779D2268EF3EJust got a call from painters they said my motor was in very good shape given that it was rebuilt 11 years ago. Bad news is my case is shot! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉGave them the go ahead for a new case and they are going to also replace one bad head I had. Everything else was good for rebuild๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ So, except for an additional $1300 kick in the dick on my rebuild, White Lightnin will be rolling Soon!!!

    Imagine all the miles youโ€™ll put on white lighting once itโ€™s got a fresh engine!! I think you need to plan a big trip once itโ€™s done!! ๐Ÿ˜„

    the Baja will work great for Moab and perhaps be a little less stressful than taking your brand new engine out there ๐Ÿ˜œ
