Started on the front beam today. Scraped a few pounds of crud off.
Shock bushing sleeves were stuck to the lower mounts as usual.
Front shift rod coupler forward grub screw broke, and the rear part of the coupler was seized to the rod. More items for the parts list.
Pulled beam and started on tear down.

Nice…. Coming apart, getting redone, refurbished, and returned to service!!!! 😎Pat KModeratorJuly 7, 2022 at 5:12 pmPost count: 2637
More love today. Pulled the steering box & master cylinder. Hotsy washed all the front end bits.
Blasted all of the suspension bits that will be getting painted.
King pin seals are cracked and worn.
Pressed the spindles apart for seal replacement and inspection. All of the king/link pins look good!
Fully disassembled and degreased.
We will build it if it comes.DaKineParticipantJuly 7, 2022 at 7:42 pmPost count: 83

Sooooo great hanging out with you for the 4th!!!!!! Maybe you’ll be able to fly down and cruise with us to Lava🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!John JonesModeratorJuly 10, 2022 at 6:57 amPost count: 9941
Pat will be back on this next week sometime… I bet it can be done before Lava… 😎 😎 😎
ALL taken apart now….. and looking awesome… 😎John JonesModeratorJuly 11, 2022 at 5:51 amPost count: 9941
well… I think I am way off on the timing of the motor on this one… Franz told me they just ordered parts last week..,, I thought they were building it… so.. Very unlikely it will be done for the VW at the Springs.. opps… 😎 😎 I was over optimisitc!
But, good news, Pat came in early early and is taking Brendan OFF the dolly, and put yours ON a dolly!!! Get it off the lift, AND, now we can power wash the bottom side before we start putting it back together… 😎 Get it all clean, and all the old crud out of everything!!!IdaradoParticipantJuly 11, 2022 at 9:07 amPost count: 22
Well as cool as it would have been to join you guys at the springs with the bus, the timing seemed very ambitious. The invite still stands if you guys want to come to Wintertux (Ketchum) before or after the springs. Look forward to seeing everyone again. I’m still high on stoke from Silverton!Pat KModeratorJuly 11, 2022 at 9:53 amPost count: 2637
On the dolly. Ready to roll out for a good cleaning.
We will build it if it comes.
