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!
