Hello!

Here is my van when I bought it in September 2008,coming to O'ahu with my suitcase and 2 surfboards, I bought it 36 hours after my arrival from France (I still have over there a 1989 Hannover Edition,1.9TDi-M,5 speeds,Devon pop top roof etc...)

That's the home in where I still lives today,and my daily driver.
I did since I have it 20 000 miles,I can't believe it's so reliable Laughing
I never had such reliability on my stock diesels 1600CC and 1900CC in France,until I switched to 1.9 TDI-M before coming to Hawai'i.

here is the video of the TDI engine

the day I got it,it was impossible to shift into 1st and 2nd gears,so I parked on the cell phone waiting area for the airport and managed to fix it up with the few tools the owner gave to me,and a roll of ducktape.I couldn't find the bushing part locally...
I extracted the pin with a chinese chopstick,made with very hard wood that I carved the right diameter with a knife.
Put the front bushing to the rear (missing) on the tranny selector,and made one for the front out of ducktape and greased it with oil from motor leaks Laughing
It stayed like that 6 months,it was shifting so nice,that I was lazy to work again on it to put the new bushing that I received from my friend Tito,who came for 3 months visiting me,living in the van.
I paid half his plane ticket so he can bring my dog from France,and some spare parts.
I received soon after by mail,some big spare parts,cheaper than in the USA,with my so beloved tool box,with quality metric tools,all I need to fix anything on the van.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.
I fixed up the front shock absorber,the threads were far gone,so I put a U clamp to fix it temporarily.


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.
I then met a guy pretty quick,how became my friend:he's renting vans ,Oahucampingvans.com

I worked a little bit for him as a mechanic,and he gave me the 2 missing tables for my van,one of them taken in this bad 2.0L aircooled Vanagon from 1980,with AC Shocked
I got some spare parts also from it,like little caps for screws etc...

Then I replaced quickly all the gas lines to not have a fire in my home,took off that shitty part,useless,went straight,one shot gas line.

Then I noticed my parking brake was weaker,I tried to fix it,but right side cable was rusty as f...k!!!

so bad,I didn't put it back,and went to Jamie's place to get another used one,that was like 10mm to short,but I put it anyway,night was coming,grrrrr

I didn't have a jack stand,so I went in the river mouth of wailupe river,where I was,to bring back this super heavy concrete bloc,50yards:that was a pain in the ass!!

Then I worked on the fridge,didn't work as nice as it should be...

Odometer was not working,and I needed it to work for safety check....??Numbers were crooked,so I knew that the axle pin went out:easy fix.
I finally found a safety check,and was easy:so funny,it was raining,so he came out fast,checked lights and wipers,asked if it was braking good:I got it,incredible!!!!They don't check ball joints and shit??Brakes and wheel ripping on a plate?etc....This is a JOKE!!!!

I replaced tranny so I could work on mine to put longer pinions,my friend Jamie is lending me one for now.

I finally changed my mine,it was too expensive to upgrade the VW tranny and still have a piece of shit.

For less than that,I bought a UN1 tranny from France,my friend sent it to me through the mail in a puzzle mode Laughing

I rebuilt the VW tranny with all bearings new,new seals and synchro rings,bearing etc...and sold it.
