A big hit for Willie Nelson, and also a happy event to be on the road again with our 1977 Volkswagen Transporter/Bus! We call her Lucy.
What started out as a repair (see the post directly before this one) turned mostly into a top end engine rebuild. The work is now complete, with the engine back in its place. The test drives have been strong and smooth.
Here is a brief description of what I did-
I am sure there is more that I have forgotten to list. This work took about 10 weeks, but the result is a smooth, strong engine.
After about 50 miles I will recheck valve clearances, and after something like 300 miles I'll change out the oil and filter.
Some photos and a video of the result are below.
Lucy is now On The Road Again!
