"79 Tim wrote: I wouldn't waste time with chasing exhaust or other parts.  Perform a compression test and a leak down test to get a good idea of the current health of your engine."

busboss replied to Dharma Van's discussion Voltage leaks (how to find?)
"Did your battery problems start after your aux install?  Sound like it.  You may have to retrace and double check your wiring for the aux.  Sounds like you've got at least one air of wires installed in a reverse fashion."

busboss replied to Carolina Vehr's discussion Anyone know how to repair a cracked dashboard???
"This is probably the best deal you ill find.  Don't know where you are located and can't vouch for the seller.   http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1068551"

busboss replied to Patricia Reed's discussion T-REX MISSING!
"Call the SFPD and have them take a swab of that blood before you clean her.  They can probably locate your bus loving friend in no time."

busboss replied to Joshua Patterson's discussion Chalk Board Bus..
"You should definitely move it anywhere out of your engine compartment (perhaps under the tin). Any leaks or faults in the current location and your bus will catch fire pretty darn quick!"

busboss replied to Joshua Patterson's discussion Chalk Board Bus..
"Nice work - looks like great fun for the kids. You could easily make one of these lantern hangers for a bucket. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=306877&highlig... FWIW you should also move that fuel filter out of the engine…"

busboss replied to Laura Anne's discussion Fuel Line replaced and now my Bus won't start!
"Hey LA! Problems like this require simple but deliberate troubleshooting. Based on your symptoms, I would check spark first and then fuel. Spark: Any cracks in that distributor cap? Installed correctly with good connections? Fuel: Before going any…"
