A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
Dear VW Bus Family,
I have run into a long series of bad mechanics who have left me right where I started 3 years ago. Everyone I know says to give up on my VW Bus, but I am not. I have a new/rebuilt long block, I just need someone who knows how to work on old VW's like ours and what they are doing and put it all back together.
I had 1.7 liter Porsche high performance pancake engine, and we tried to upgrade it to a 2.0 liter long block. Long sad story, but I need to tow it from the shop to a reputable honest mechanic as soon as possible. I live in Pacifica, CA. My bus is in Rancho Cordova, CA. I am willing to tow it anywhere for a good, reasonable honest mechanic would like to get her running again.
I have replaced the transmission, all of the electrical, the brakes, went down to one new carburetor, all new parts. We just had trouble with the Camshaft. We had one reground twice and still are having trouble with the Cam & Lifters.
I will also be restoring her custom interior and could use some help there as well.
Thank you for your help.
