    I would love to have this DEEK. I have a friend who has two DKWs one of which is a roll over and he has offered them to me several times. I believe I could make this all work out, but have a lot of stuff I need to get past before thinking about it.

    As soon as I turn the engine off. 10-15 minutes of run time. The idea is to flush out trash before it settles to the bottom of the case. Metal from lifter/cam and piston ring wear. I can tell you the oil drain pan looks shiny like a pearl paint job in the sun. Super fine pieces in suspension.

    Did the same in the little VW shop where I worked in Georgia. Then refilled with oil after it cooled, reset the valves, and took it on a preset 50 mile drive if it was going in a car at the shop. Drained and checked again immediately, refilled again and another 50 mile test loop before turning over to the customer. On build only engines we still ran and replaced the oil twice on the test stand before handing them over.

    Can you baffle the pan so oil slosh doesn’tΒ  pull oil away from the pick up tube ?

    Did some back in the day until it got too hard to find any near enough to make the trip worth while. My two best cars were a highly modified Cooper S and a Corvair with a mid mountedΒ  327 Vette engine. Built both cars cheap from cars and parts bought at auction from the Sheriffs impound lot Spring clean up. The only real expense was the mid engine kit that I got a deal on from a guy who bought the top of the line kit ( adapters, frame connectors, roll cage, exhaust system, and full cooling system including the radiator) and just stashed in his barn when he saw how much work was involved. Great fun while it lasted.

    I’m sure whomever did this thought it was a good idea. However that is what booze and drugs mixed improperly can result in.

    When I was working in a small VW shop down in Georgia many…many years ago, tires like that were very popular with the swamp buggy guys.Β  If the rubber is good, use them !

    Just got a call from a young lady in Gunnison who has a huge oil leak in her VW bus, but I get the feeling she really has no clue as to what her problem really is. Would one of you local guys be willing to take a quick look and at least get her pointed in the right direction so some scammer repair shop doesn’t rip her savings account to pieces ? Give me a call at (970) 201-6572 and Ill give you her information.Β  Thanks.

    I still need a roof for my 73 standard. The area behind those damn vents by quarter windows down to the fender mounting area and the area between the drip rail and rear window is rusted on my car too. I should be in Grand Junction Monday evening I am hoping.

    Would one of these work ?tin 8416 005
