All new hydraulic cylinders, rubber brake hoses, metal lines, drums, wheel bearings, springs, handbrake cables, shoes, a gallon of fluid used up bleeding a river of fluid, wheels on and off numerous times and still – funky brakes. It’s probably the shoes. When a shoe touches only in the middle, when one applies the brakes, the wheel cylinder piston pushes against the end, the shoe bends until it makes full contact. This small amount of bending is travel – which directly translates into […]

Here’s two bug shift bushings … They’re both the same except the one on the left is very hard and the one on the right is very soft. The one on the left works in an early Vanagon but you put it in backwards. And it’ll have to be made from the material on the left – the white one. Since you can’t necessarily pick the bushing you want, you’ll just have to look around. I’m trying to acquire a […]

Here’s a pic of the 2 basic types of throttle bodies for fuel injected buses … At idle, air passes through this hole along with air passing through the idle speed screw orifice. If you screw the idle speed screw all the way in, the only air that gets to the engine is through this hole and through the auxiliary air regulator if it’s still open for whatever reason – engine cold or regulator not closing when hot a it […]

to get from the outer surface of the tail light bulb with original tail light housings on a bus up to 1971 to ground – the chassis, which is directly connected to the negative terminal on the battery. First, the ground current leaves the outer, round surface of the bulb and into the cylinder that surrounds it. That’s one interface. The cylinder is  crimped around it’s circumference to the the reflector/housing. That’s another interface. But there’s also a small tab […]

Can’t get your 6 volt car to charge the battery? Tried everything? Maybe it’s because the battery cable from the battery to the starter is 50 years old. Just try it.  Even if it has zero resistance. 15 bucks.  And if it’s a new “complete” cable,  not fabbed  outta cable and connectors,  cut off the integral (permanently installed) battery clamp and put a “bolt on” one on. Then put a new crimp on eyelet connector on the starter end. When […]

Lately I’ve been seeing vehicles with the wrong pedal assemblies installed in them. Some websites offer the late pedal assembly – 66 and up – but state that it’s correct for all non bus models from 1958 and up. This is wrong and putting the wrong pedal assembly in your car will make it impossible to adjust the brake push rod, adjust the clutch properly, and you’ll never have the proper at-rest orientation of the pedals. Proper pedal orientation and […]
