perjantai 26. kesäkuuta 2015 to the rescue!

I just got a set of differnt parts, a set of shims to my 2332 cc stroker engine, so that the berg rockers can be installed, ... a new gas cap, new ignition switch, both steering rods, to the blue ghia
A bilstein repair kit to the busses steering arm shaft, ... an oil cooler replacement for the next 1915 or for the stroker 2332 cc ... so now i only need time to do all of these...upgrades/repairs, wuuhuuu! Things happen!

Strokers & stuff

Well, for the stroker, i just got a set of lash caps, but still i have to locate some studs for the rockers, the pauter rockers stud wont fit with the berg rockers...
And also ... Have to find a oil cooler part.
And if you have a set of super flo valve covers, to sell, give me a message!

I got the -1600cc engine to the ghia cab, but the clutch release spring snapped in 3 pieces in the first try... So more things to fix. 
I changed also the exhaust/heater part to the right side of the engine, and i will put all the ducting to work so that theres a working heater in the ghia. Heh. Useless?
No way, sometimes the summer nights are chilly, and if you drive without any top, you will need one.

The red bug will be meeting its new owner hopefully at friday. 

The black ghia needs also some attention :-)

To be continued...

New heart to the ghia, comes ...

...from the red bug, ... And the reason is that theres a need for a bug without an engine. It goes to seinäjoki region... So i will put it in the ghia tomorrow, and hopefully, it takes the ghia closer to the "running mode"... :-) this city needs a patina vert ghia to the streets...

The change is coming!

For the panel van, ;-) ...its coming, the 84x94 stroker. It may not be the ultimate fastest panel van in the streets, but maybe a surprise for some of the guys in the Leasing GTI's, the brakes has always been superior, and the ride is like in the rails, so the only ingridient mising is 100 hp more. Maybe it will happen with this... Who knows.
