Gas Pedal Repair

Gas Pedal Repair
Wildthings
I used a standard butt hinge to make a replacement hinge for my gas pedal. One leaf I left untouched and the other I cut down so it fits up behind the pedal. This setup is much sturdier than the original and most replacement setups.

This repair was done about 10 years back and is still working fine, I just need to put a few drops on oil on the hinge every couple of years.

Note that the bung is installed a bit too close to the muffler and that the flange on the muffler needed to be clearanced as a result.

Oil leak and dust

Had two minor oil leaks start up at the same time on a longish trek. Drain plug gasket leaking and the distributor o-ring. Sure made a mess.

Vanagon speciality tool
Wildthings
Wanted to take my automatic tranny to the car wash to spray the dirt off and wanted a way to keep water from entering through the exposed seal for the torque converter. I found that a piece of 1 1/4PVC pipe with a cap on it was a perfect fit.

Side View mirror modification
Wildthings
I fought this worn out mirror for a long time and finally decided to make it so it couldn't fold in on its own. I drilled a hole in the side of joint in the mirror arm a bit smaller than a #10 screw. I then loosened the nut a bit, put a set screw into the hole and tighten the nut back up. The swing function of the arm is nice and tight now and not going anywhere unless the mirror is hit really hard.
