    Mud and miles on that thing! Love that bus! I can tell KB misses having that one at the shop haha

     

    look at that front trans mount… I recall that thing still bucking a bit even with the stiffer mounts. Maybe time to put the solid mount back on?🤔 up to you guys

    Brake problem was a leaky pass rear wheel cylinder. Replaced that and installed a new shoes on both sides.B1C7CD0C-1AC7-4130-8A53-384CD6D322F0A55FF8C1-79AA-4161-942B-8D1456C51373

    Nose cone swapped out to beetle due to the tranny raise. 8B08051D-3ACB-4E2A-A583-20D8D9DAB58C

    Sorry Cole…..Trans is in along with new mounts. If it’s still bucking when we test drive it tomorrow we’ll go from there. 5113A774-DE1A-442E-AF76-A001909B96FDC5041D83-EAD2-49FC-939A-78DAD3195E8F

    Finished buttoning up the brake system this morning, bleed and adjusted.

    Rolled the dirty pig of a motor outside and cleaned it up.9AF8B69D-0B8C-4E51-BCF1-5971A9D09F5D9543FA15-9195-488D-B801-4E3FD30AE9FB

    Trans was a virgin 6V. Had to grind the bell housing. See the shiny spots where the flywheel was binding while trying to install?908F079C-34D9-4AD6-80F6-A509BC260D81

    Finally got her stabbed in and hooked up!!!   DA4DACFD-750A-4711-9863-034AE26463D1

    All right….Thursday turned into a swift kick to the grapes.

    Input shaft seal on the trans was leaking big time.  Pulled motor, seal had worked itself out somehow, replaced seal and stabbed the motor back in Friday morning.

    All seamed good to go. Then the driver side axle boot flange started leaking…..F#%K ME!!!

    I kept a blind eye to it all weekend. Got back at this morning.  Just finished resealing drivers side of trans.

    Starting on the sway bar install. 58488141-A3D5-48EF-AA2A-909FA9EDB132

    Sway bar is a no go on this rig…runs into the pitman arm due to the suspension lift.6BF91C50-78E4-4A33-971C-87C066A44823

    Speedo cable was broke, ordered a new one. Replaced the broken headlight lens. C4E53EBF-E524-48D6-92CD-101EE5BB4C6E

    Torqued heads and adjusted valves as well yesterday. Filled the trans up this morning.

    Just remember to never follow Jj too close! The pamper WILL break your headlight lenses or windshields! No exceptions. Even on the highway! Haha

     

    thanks for getting it all buttoned up! Can’t wait to have it back. I know KB has been talking about camping in it! Mentioned it multiple times. So I know he’s been missing it.

    I think we will hold off on the paint for now. Get some more use out of it and then bring it in one winter for a spa treatment.

    I got a couple little things to adjust. But yeah, ready to rip.

    We’ll give it a quick wash and wipe down one of the mornings too….Even though I know Cole is going to drive it down the dirtiest road, through a mud hole, and hit a deer the first opportunity he gets. 😁😁

    Lubed up a speedo core with atf to run in the bus while the original 5/67 speedometer is out for a rebuild.
