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...

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

I bet the electrical portion of the ignition switch has failed. unhook the switch and jump terminal #30 (HOT all the time and unfused) to terminal #50 and see if it cycles the starter.

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

You have a compression fitting in the hard brake line going to a caliper in a photo above, those are not safe on brake lines and probably not legal. There's a bleeder screw at the bottom of the caliper in the pic, make sure there's another at the top. Either you have a caliper with two bleeders or ...

Re: Woodward Dream Cruise 2020

If it's a bust we can load up my Caravan and drive around to all the old factory sites. My wife and I did that once with a guy we met at the local cars and coffee that was in town from Chicago.

I think if you stay north of 14 Mile you should not be hasseled. County Sherrif and State PD might be an issue the whole length of the strip h ticket book in hand for the rice and muscle guys.

We use SeaRox from Rockwool at work in our chambers and I will get the other product for you tomorrow at work. It is Kapton faced Melamine foam.
