Waiting on paint to dry on the fan shroud today. So I assembled the brand new cb performance dual 40 Weber carb kit. Alodine coating on the manifolds linkage and air filters.
12volt 105mm generator brand new from Bosch of Mexico. Dressed up to look like old 6 volt.ColeBParticipantNovember 19, 2019 at 10:18 pmPost count: 1332

The Alodine?? looks awesome!!!!!!!!!! I bet we have a break in run on friday!!!!! 😎MikeKParticipantNovember 21, 2019 at 9:59 amPost count: 135
Great looking motor. Is that alodine finish the same product they use to get that golden color on old engine cases? Does it do anything to steel? I really like the look.RustabusParticipantNovember 21, 2019 at 10:43 amPost count: 1701
Is this thing gonna get a Cole Super Sump??????? 🙂FranzKeymasterNovember 21, 2019 at 6:25 pmPost count: 2976
Alodine is for aluminum and mag. It has chromium in it or something to help fight corrsion. Used on aircraft stuff.
I’m ready for break-in tomorrow after we get some hose from the UPS truck.ColeBParticipantNovember 22, 2019 at 9:12 amPost count: 1332
I only have my version 1 sump left over… maybe I will have to make some more… cant wait for break in! I know KB is excited for this sc. talked to him last nightFranzKeymasterNovember 22, 2019 at 6:42 pmPost count: 2976
Break-in was awesome. Ran perfect. I adjusted the carbs, timing, and dropped the PennGrade oil while it was hot. Valve adjustments stayed almost the same, so I feel good about the cam wear.
Ready to install.
I got the CB Performance off road carburetor kit that came with red UNI air filters and idle jet air inlet extensions. I like it.Juan 59 DDWTParticipantNovember 24, 2019 at 10:19 amPost count: 276

Back on this one today. Spun and milled a e-brake cable pivot pin that was missing.
Had to make a pair of e-brake cable extenders to make the small nut non-split trans e-brake cables work. All bolt in now, no mods required when cables need replacing.
Franz installed the late model beetle dual master cylinder were running and bent up the last couple hard lines as well.
We will build it if it comes.JeremyParticipantDecember 2, 2019 at 8:50 pmPost count: 79
Nice work on the E-brake pivot. Lathes and mills are cool tools. I like puttering on shit like that.FranzKeymasterDecember 4, 2019 at 11:09 amPost count: 2976
Running into a few missing parts.
Lever shocks. Do you guys know anybody who may have spares? We can get them rebuilt at Apple Hydralics in NY. Eveything for sale on samba is in Europe.
Heater knob is a special piece. Kai has one listed on samba. Should we get it?FranzKeymasterDecember 4, 2019 at 12:52 pmPost count: 2976
I have some late 52 -early 53 zwitter lower shock mounts. We could make 1/4” plate uppers to adapt telescoping shocks?JbParticipantDecember 4, 2019 at 9:35 pmPost count: 544
I think Johnny has some crusty lever shocks for saleFranzKeymasterDecember 5, 2019 at 8:40 amPost count: 2976
Yeah. We need them. I’ll get a hold of Johnny.
How about the heater knob? If I don’t hear from you guys this morning, I’m going to buy the one Kai has.Pat KKeymasterDecember 5, 2019 at 11:42 amPost count: 1127
Working on the seat base this morning. Replacing/fixing broken springs.
All of the wire supports that tie the spring together were broken.
This pile of bits should be 24 spring supports.
Started on new ones. Four down twenty to go.
Fourteen bends to make each one.
We will build it if it comes.russParticipantDecember 5, 2019 at 12:48 pmPost count: 72
