    Engine break-in just happened. It sounds really good. Responsive.

     

    Its kind of cool to get this part from Mark R. as he is part of the bus history/find. Check out some of the old pictures of this bus on his website.

    Looks like the right stuff.
    Wednesday, I have an alternative plan to get this bus road worthy, if the brake parts do not arrive.

    Its been a good day assembling on the engine. I have a fuel lines and wires to run before I can do break-in tomorrow.

    I think it has a nice super-stock look.

    This is pretty much the highlight of my career. Building two barndoors at the same time.

    Its a Ralph door.

    You know, when you lay down after a few drinks and the room starts to spin. 🙂

    Again with “Grampa”. One of the best road trips of my life!

    You were ahead of the curve on body colored bumpers.

    The tall air filter are something. We got them with the carbs (used from a sand car).

    Regular size air filters will fit better with the spare tire tray. Which we do have and may install later. Or not.

    Thanks man! Its a fun engine. Dressed to look old. Nothing too fancy. 100% serviceability and function.

    The engine is fully done and running awesome. I did a break-in oil change and valve adjustment. Ready for its first road trip.

    Sounds like its free!

    I know an old man with a killer roll-back truck and winch. All we have to do is park the truck and hook the cable up. 😉

    I know I’ve said this before and I’m going to see it again Guys because it applies to all of us! CHECK YOUR FUEL LINES!!!!!!!!!!!The carbs on my single cab always leak a little gas so I expect a little fuel smell but last week it was stronger than usual so finally I lifted my deck lid and noticed that one of my fuel lines need to be replaced BADLY!!!

    I’m pretty sure its caused by the ethanol fuel blend that every gas station sells. I’ve noticed more problems with floats and fuel hose the last few years.

    All you aircooled VW guys need to look for a gas station that sells ethanol-free gas.
