Re: Camp Qwesty 2020...Don't Miss it!

Looks like you all had a great trip, sorry we missed it. One of the things we like about traveling up to KI is the caravan we go up in. Thanks for sharing,

Re: 1974 Double Cab

I just wanted to give a shout out to the Samba and share the experience I had selling this bus. Hopefully I won’t have to sell another VW (down to a manageable number now :D ). If you are wanting maximum exposure for your ad pay the $35 for the Feature Ad. We had posted the ad back on May 12 and had...

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

Thanks for the replies. I have been driving it back and forth to work the last two days and it has been firing right up with no hesitation. Just in case I park it in the corner of the lot that has slight slope in case I need to roll start it :lol: Bus Depot advised me today the German Ignition switc...

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

So I think al...

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

So I crawled back under there tonight. Moved the red wire with the black stripe to the terminal next to the red wire with the white stripe. Had my son crank it and it fired right up. Did it several times again and started each time. Drove it to pick my older son up from work and again no issues (fig...

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

Checked at the starter and got 12.46. Switched to the terminal the red wire with the white stripe is attached to, had my son crank the ignition and got nothing. Cut the connector off, it was bent and felt weak, stripped the wire back and had my son crank again and still nothing. Jumped with a screw ...
