The knobs seem fine, I can pull them off and then re-attach the plastic knob to the metal posts sticking out from the stove just fine, they look to be completely intact... the plastic pieces certainly ...

Thanks for the PMs, the clk wheels will be gone, one way or another to the first couple of guys who contacted me, as spares.

I've been working on my '82 Westfalia after re-acquiring it after a 12 year hiatus... the last 8 or so years it was left out in a Kansas farm field. I've buffed it, waxed it, runs great at this point. ...

So, I was warned by the previous owner that randomly, my '82 Aircooled westy won't start. It has a new starter, about 2 months old. He replaced that thinking it was the problem. But every once in a wh ...
