Oil leak and dust
Wildthings
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.

Fuel line debris from Orchard bees.
Wildthings
We have bees or some other insects that will fill up any 5/16 - 3/8 inch hole they can get at with dirt and other debris to make a nesting site. This is the crap I found in my fuel line which had been left open for several days while I had the carb off for replacement.

Gap around Type 4 engine for foam seal
Wildthings
The gap for the foam seal around a Type 4 engine varies from fairly loose to very tight. I have trimmed back the tinin places to open the gap. This makes installing and removing the foam gasket that much easier.
