Re: brazilian splitsceen v german

I own a ‘67 Brazilian bus and it’s much like the above. Repairs were very poor, mine was restored over here so I now know it’s all good. There didn’t seem to be much difference with the metal (mostly autocraft now!) As it stands German buses seem to be well priced at the moment. You will pay less fo...

Re: VW SPLITSCREEN STAINLESS STEEL CUP HOLDERS

Fitted my cup holders today Fast delivery, great quality, little bit awkward to drill with my smaller drill bit, so get yourself a longer drill bit to make it easier. http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h470/jackricha/BC015711-B72A-406D-A27A-3D824C5947A3.jpeg http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h470...

Re: Language used on Facebook

We must be able to think of a way of getting most people back to the forum.
I use facebook, but only because it seems a little quiet over here now.

Re: Common Breakdown problems

Well nearly everything currently in the bus is new.
I had it for about a year then had a nut and bolt resto,(hopefully be in the Mag soon)
luckily not much went wrong in that year, only one petrol mishap.

thanks

Re: Common Breakdown problems

Which oil do most people use, Morris 30?

Obviously every breakdown is different, but common things. I've had my bus a while, but haven't driven it much due to Resto. So I would l...

Yeah I suppose thats the case, in all honesty I probably need to improve my knowledge of the engine. Other than the tech weekend that has just gone, do the club run anything to help people with this? Maybe we could start a 'what to check first if you break down thread' Missed it this year but on the...
