12 Oil Preheat System- Thermal Paste
Floating VW
I applied a thin layer of thermal paste to help the heat transfer from the aluminum plate to the steel plate as much as possible.

Fuel hardlines

Some before and after media blasting and powder coating my fuel hardlines. These are for a a 78-79.

The powder is Eastwood silver base. They look like polished aluminum as opposed to chrome.

See that teeny little copper "strap" on the right side? that's the path to ground for the coil power. It's path to ground is through the aluminum housing and the stupid mounting clip on top of it.

Ground path is through the aluminum housing into the black clip and then it has to tie to the body. On mine, the rivets weren't even tight any more. Horrible!

67 Door Panel But Dressed as a 63

I always liked the early 60s Ghia interior better than the 67 so I figured I would give my doors a retro look. Who would have known that the chrome and aluminum strips would be really tough to find. But I kept the ever important one year only door pull.

so I dreamed up an interior kitchen that can go outside under my awning or work inside if needed... 2 months and 250+ m5x8 bolts later... a light weight aluminum t-slot frame and pvc panel construction dual unit set up. 3rd unit is coming with a chest freezer atop storage unit with similar build that will go behind the passenger seat... stainless camping grill fits inside the storage cabinet, the sink unit has a 12 v water pump and 10 gallon tank of fresh water, spray head under-sink can unhook and then push mister system on the awning when outside. Sink unit has 8' drain hose that ports out bottom of bus or when outside can extend away from kitchen area. Top surface is a HDPE cutting board material.

'71 Camper Restoration - Auxiliary Oil Cooler
bigdaveb
Since there have been a few engine modifications that may introduce more heat to the oiling system, an auxiliary oil cooler has been added to the build. A custom oil cooler bracket was fabricated in order to place the cooler in the desired location and to provide the most compact and low profile installation possible. A MOCAL sandwich plate adapter was installed with the oil filter and will control oil flow to the auxiliary cooler when oil temps reach approximately 180 F. The oil lines to the cooler are 1/2" 316 stainless steel tube with insulation in areas that are in contact with the body paint. The bracket was fabricated with 6061 aluminum stock and hard anodized black.

A fan was not deemed necessary since the cooling fins were installed parallel to the air stream and would only really be used during times of severe loading or idling in traffic. As the primary stock cooler is in place with all tins accounted for, and the motor being detailed and blueprinted, the auxiliary oil cooler will likely see minimal use.

More Subaru swap progress. I used a 45* and 90* aluminum bend to make the rigid suction line off of the engine. This line is in pretty close proximity to the exhaust, so a flexible rubber line wouldn't hold up well here.

More Subaru swap progress. Another angle of the suction hardline for my SOHC EJ25 swap. I used a 45* and 90* aluminum bend to make the rigid suction line off of the engine. This line is in pretty close proximity to the exhaust, so a flexible rubber line wouldn't hold up well here. The line then follows the frame rail up past the axle by about 2-3"

Original ATE 1970 bus master cylinder vs new Varga

So here's a comparison of innards of an original two brake circuit switch ATE master cylinder versus the one switch replacement sold at Bus Depot and other retailers.

ATE is the aluminum piston on bottom, the bronzeish one is the new Varga one.

I had removed the original ATE MC out because though it stopped the car, the seal that keeps fluid from leaking out the end leaked. I installed this red one and never got anything but air in the lines, even after spending hours and hours bleeding the brakes. I got frustrated and then took them off and decided to cannabalize the new one to see if I could get the original working again.

As you can see, the innards to the Varga are different, and lack a chamber for the second switch, as well as that innermost spring is shorter. Also, the copper screw was fairly deformed but I don't know if I was the one who overtighetened it.
