Been getting some conversion parts from Boxeer. Which means we can make some more progress. Power steering pump bracket is probably headed our way today. I need to get a 3.0 h-6 power steering pump now.FranzKeymasterNovember 17, 2017 at 10:17 amPost count: 2976
Also been thinking about the new tablet type display. You guys should pick out whatever you like best. I’m thinking bigger is better? Probably mounted in the center of the dash or near the shifter.ColeBParticipantNovember 17, 2017 at 2:04 pmPost count: 1328
We usually use Apple products, will that run the software? I bet a normal size iPad would work.FranzKeymasterNovember 18, 2017 at 12:09 pmPost count: 2976
Yeah it’ll work on any devise. Bring one next time. We can do some mounting bracket research and/or make custom.FranzKeymasterDecember 5, 2017 at 9:38 amPost count: 2976
We got a prototype power steering pump bracket and figured out that it fits a 06 tribeca pump. I ordered a mkiv tdi fuel filter assembly, and subaru euro5 glow plugs yesterday…I got a second set of plugs for spares, because its going to be impossible to find replacement parts for this engine without ordering them from europe. About ready to fit the engine to the van. Maybe next week while Cole is here.ColeBParticipantDecember 5, 2017 at 10:09 amPost count: 1328
Ya, id like to help. It’ll be nice to not be 100% clueless if anything goes wrongJohn JonesKeymasterDecember 7, 2017 at 8:14 amPost count: 5855

100 days to Baja and we need this rig there. Im going to push this thing in today and start getting the engine and trans bolted in so we can start fabing all the plumbing. Lots to do.ColeBParticipantDecember 26, 2017 at 10:15 amPost count: 1328
Awesome to hear! I’ll bring an iPad the end of this week so we can start thinking about where to mount it. Thanks for the update Pat! My mom is so excited to camp in this thing!John JonesKeymasterDecember 26, 2017 at 10:37 amPost count: 5855

The motor is hanging on the tranny!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 For this to be ready for Baja… I think it needs to stay at the very tip top of the clean shop’s lists….. KB. we have a lot of mechanicals to figure out in the next 99 or so days… 😀kevinbParticipantDecember 30, 2017 at 6:50 amPost count: 37John JonesKeymasterDecember 30, 2017 at 7:47 amPost count: 5855
Thats funny.. 😀 There is nothing I have to add to this project. It is outside my skill level. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Except maybe that dent in the rear hatch.. I could handle that.. 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉RustabusParticipantDecember 31, 2017 at 9:02 amPost count: 1701
I’m with you John! I feel like I’m at a VW show looking at all the custom water coolers!! I can tell they are “built” and custom, but I have no idea what I’m looking at!!! 😉 😉 😀ColeBParticipantDecember 31, 2017 at 7:46 pmPost count: 1328
That’s a big vanagon! Such a cool stance with the new wheels and tires. New light bar too! ??John JonesKeymasterJanuary 8, 2018 at 6:36 amPost count: 5855
Peet has this syncro in his radar…. I heard. it needs to be in baja in 3 months or so.. 😉 😉FranzKeymasterJanuary 8, 2018 at 9:02 amPost count: 2976
I’m glad Pat is on it. Hes cleaning up the wiring. Next on my list is to figure out all the supplies I’m going to need to modify the coolant connections, build a intake manifold, air filter, and exhaust. Its going to be fun. Bunch of fab.
