going to a better home
Tom Powell
I had an engine fire and the fire department broke windows and flooded the interior while the engine burned. Then they put out the engine fire. I bought a replacement '87 Vanagon and Alika T3 towed the hulk away and used it for parts. I later saw my windshield at a polo game.

Tom Powell
A spring tension curtain rod from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MBENV68/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
Checked 9 and 3 o'clock positions on the wheels. Front of the wheel first and marked the inner part of the rod with tape where the outer part of the rod overlapped. Moved to the back of the tire and noted the distance from the mark to the outer part of the rod rod. 1/8" Bentley specs are 1/8"1/8" at the wheel rim. I consider my toe in on the better side of the Bentley specs.

mismatched wheels in front
Tom Powell
I pulled the front wheels and this is what I found when I measured the offset. The offset is different and the wheel hub thickness is different. This resulted in the socket and different depths right/left.

Why are the lug bolts and nuts at different depths?
Tom Powell
The socket is set against the shoulder on the head of the lug bolt in front and against the wheel in the rear. The socket is at different depths side to side. I might expect a difference front/rear, but not side to side. Why is there a difference? Do I have two different sets of wheels, instead of four matched wheels?

Paperwork with the vehicle when I purchased it. Possibly an alignment after PO did a 2" lift and bought new tires.

horribly worn and poorly worn tires
Tom Powell
I bought an 87 Vanagon in Oregon and drove it to the East Coast and back to SoCal. The PO had done a 2 lift and put on new tires. Possibly he did not do a wheel alignment, but I found some paperwork. The front tires were horribly worn after I got to SoCal. I replaced them and had an alignment done. The tires have CIP1 spacers and I want to replace those with solid spacers from T3. I pulled a front tire to measure the spacers and noted that the new tires are wearing poorly after a SoCal, Utah, Tahoe, SoCal trip and another SoCal, Tahoe, SoCal trip. Damn. I measured the CIP1 spacers at 14.5mm. I have 15mm spacers in my T3 shopping cart. Ill order them, install them, switch tires front to back, and get another alignment. Attached are photos of the spacers on one wheel and vernier scale, old/new tire with horrible wear, alignment specs, wheel, new/new tire with poor wear.

sensor broken at the threads, removal tools
Tom Powell
The coolant level sensor broke off at the threads and I used these tools to remove the leftover threaded portion. I cut slots in the threads with the intention of breaking out pieces, but I was able to get it out by prying in a circle and unscrewing it.
