    Big commitment but in the long run a great reward.

    When I worked at a VW machine shop the way we did it was drill a hole in the bend just above the exhaust flange mount and another hole on the backside of the heat riser tube where it joins the intake manifold. If it was solid plugged I would find the longest drill bit I could and use that to break up the really heavy build up. Then go thru it with a clutch cable and lastly blow it out with the air nozzle. Then wrld up the 4 holes and you’re done. I did 100’s of them.

    Thanks guys.

    The beam is actually 4″ narrowed because it originally had welded raised Wagenswest spindles and 1″ wheel spacers to get those 15″ bus rims with their deep inset away from the spindles.  I had my original stock spindles rebuilt and sold off those raised ones a year or two ago because someone hit me up for them.  Plus I wasn’t going to go extreme raised like Ben’s bus was originally.  I had to use the 1″ wheel spacers because it looked goofy otherwise and killed the turn radius a bit.  With the wheels tucked in just a bit it misses the dog leg perfectly.  Pretty surprised by the outcome.

    Now to start the rear end work.  I am hopeful to take a football to it, I bought one a few weeks ago.  Should be interesting.

    I finally got the front end of my bus together.  Took forever, hour here hour there.  Installed the narrowed KCW built raised adjustable beam in the bus, stock rebuilt spindles, new front brakes, hoses master, blah blah.  I went through all the pedals, greased everything, new cables, shifter bushing, gas pedal linkage, etc.  I felt like Franz painting and detailing every little thing down to new grease zerks etc.  Sits a little nose high but once my fat ass is in it should settle down to level.

    BTW big thanks to Franz for helping me figure out what shocks I needed for the front as stock ones weren’t long enough.  Turns out a mid ’90’s Volvo rear shock worked with very minimal modification.

    Now I am going to start the rear end.  Rear brakes, gas tank, tail lights, fix the engine lid carrier, put a deck lid on, and wrap my head around how to fix that bashed in corner.

    Hey Zack quick question.  How do I delete my classified ads?  On the old site I used to change the topic name to delete and whomever was the Admin, your Pops or Franz I would assume would delete them.  All I was able to do was make a post that the item sold.  Thanks again for the work your putting into keeping this site going and making it better.
