New galley pump!

I changed out the galley pump with a new one maybe 15 years ago.
I had replaced O-rings along the way, but the "remove-repair-reinstall" love affair was long over.

Thankfully, The Bus Depot (for now) still stocks manual pumps for the early Bay Westfalias.

I also needed to replace the water line from the tank (it was only 47 years old) with a new one.
Getting to it was a pain, but JLT helped.

And it works! I'm going camping!

My front door button (71 Bus) was increasingly difficult to operate, giving me soreness clear up to my shoulder. Yesterday, I tried some adjustment to the striker plate. There was a galling on it. Anyway, I did get it to work much better but today I discovered I could not get out! The inside lever would not work. Thinking something had gotten disconnected, I removed the panel but I found that it was the trim on the inside lock lever itself which was causing the trouble. I removed the trim and it works--but I like this not. I like to keep all the parts that come with the car.
Is there any good treatise on door locks? It would be nice to fix it so that it was a pleasure to open.

I have the engine out right now, so I figured I'd quickly tackle this project.

Yesterday I replaced the old duct taped (yes, duct taped) filler hose with a new, proper piece. Much better now.
