1990 Vanagon GL

I've read the various notes in the forum on Vanagon gas tank leaks, and the kit you buy to fix it. I plan to purchase the kit in the next day or so.

While this kit *may* have all the parts needed, I would like to have someone who knows Vanagons work on the Van in case there are additional parts needed.

So, I am looking for recommendations for a good VW mechanic to install it. I live in the Nashua, NH area, but am willing to travel 50 - 75+ miles to have an experienced Vanagon mechanic do the job.

Any recommendations, including phone numbers?

thanks

I ordered this kit a few months ago from Van-Cafe. Paid $70 for it. I will let it go for $45+ shipping as I no longer need it. This kit includes the crossover tube unlike some kits I've seen. Just thought I would let you know before I post it in the classifieds.

although the job of dropping the tank sucks, it really is not that difficult. The Bentley manual has as good diagram of what goes where. Removing the gas tank on a vanagon is a right of passage that all owners should experience! Very Happy
