Quick release fastener for bumpers and hoods can be used to keep the bus pop top from floating in the wind. Easy installation. See video (not mine)

stripped the crap out of the transmission drain plug - it just would not budge. Ended up carefully welding a bolt onto it. Finally got it out by gently hitting the bolt with a hammer from all sides and then using a wrench.

I loosened the two allen head bolts and made small adjustments to the plate positioning until that half-moon shaped metal part in the center was more or less horizontal. Then I tightened the bolts again and - voila - the door closes easily again - no need to slam!

emergency brake and heater control lever adjust/repair
Zylinderkopf
to adjust the emergency brake ("or parking brake"): remove rubber boot, then you will see two sets of 10 mm jam nuts. back off top nut first, then tighten bottom nut, then tighten top nut again. Do on both sides.

To tighten heater control levers: tighten 13 mm nut against nylon washers. If nylon or rubber washers are desintegrated or missing, you will need to replace them. You can also buy the whole heater lever mounting kit online. part number 131-798-349-a. Airhead Parts sells it.

Horn ring repair or replace

Use emory cloth to clean brass edge inside the steering column and the brass contact ring that the screws go through. Also clean the ground wire contact. The brass contact ring has a lip around the edge. There is a video on youtube that insists the lip should point up. I found that the ring was facing down towards the floor when I disassembled so I put it back that way and it worked.
