wiring for brake/turn/park lights with semaphores
EVfun
This circuit was originally for my beach buggy, to combine brake lights and turn signals in the rear AND combine parking lights and turn signals up front. With modifications it can be used to add those functions to a car with working semaphores.

A shot of the extended steering shaft. The controls are moved back about 10 inches in a mini-T so the steering shaft needs to be extended too.

First body fit since installing the engine. I'm building it so body removal is quick and easy. It is much nicer to work on the mechanicals without the body.

Oval window RH wiper detail
EVfun
Wiper over-centers and locks up. The wiper shafts have been recently replaced with Wolfsburg West parts. It is almost as if the connecting arm is not quite long enough, allowing it to pivot over-center at the bottom of travel and then lock up when the right wiper tries to go down instead of up.

There are a few more spots of light contact that I expected. The opening can be a bit small pretty much anywhere around the perimeter. The engine has been in, closer each time. This last time it went in and I could run the bolts down with my fingers, but there was some very slight contact as I turned the crank 1 full revolution. So, the install should be for real now.

The manifold is stock and the heat risers didn't line up well with the reproduction 1973 Thing exhaust. Not sure why, but with a cut and trim it can be fixed.

New engine on the lift. The lift will make the install easy, but the Berry body will not. I think I will lift the body up above the chassis because the alternator is coming in very close to the rear of the body and not leaving room to lift the engine enough to start the studs on the bottom engine case into the transaxle.

LED warning light circuit board
EVfun
This circuit converts 2 dash light circuits so your LED indicator lights can be grounded, seeking power to light. It will supply the needed current to start your alternator. It will also convert the oil pressure light. I use it to convert those warning lights to LED so all of my LED dash lights can be grounded and light when powered. The turn indicator light can be converted by using an different flasher.

So if you install LED dash lights on your beach buggy, or other customized VW, this makes them easy to use.

This is a simple relay circuit that can be used with the common 3 wire VW turn signal switch to combine brake and turn signals into a single rear lamp, and combine front parking lights and turn signals into a single front lamp.

1960 Beetle transaxle
EVfun
1 year only madness, in 1960 VW decided to move the axles down 15mm to reduce rear camber. They did so by reshaping the rear frame forks to move the transaxle down and moving the front of the transaxle down even more to mount the drivetrain at a 2 degree front down angle. The front change required a new nosecone with the hockey stick moved up. By doing it this way the rear of the engine ended up at the same height as before. The following year they changed the transaxle and front mount.

If you look at the dimension of the groove for the retaining clip you will see it is 13mm. It should be 12mm to fit the brake line retaining clip.
