This weekend my buddy Josh and I pulled my 1965 VW Bus out of storage and did the final tune ups to get her running for the summer!
Made a new friend, Mike, who lives nearby where she was stored and knows a ton about these aircooled motors. In 15 minutes he had me up and running in what would have taken me several hours to verify and do.
We accomplished a lot, including:
- New side mirrors – The original were not recoverable
- New blinker relay
- Electrical troubleshooting
- Tune up on the distributor
- Adjusted timing
- Verified valves
- Fresh oil
I am excited to roll the bus up to Seattle! Need to update the registration for 2015 and she is good to go!
