Buy the Bentley in book form. You will not have access to a computer when you actually need it.

The Wilson book on rebuilding yoru ACVW engine is worth the cheap money it costs also.

I still suggest making yourself a 3 ring binder to house various things that you may need to know someday. Mine contains a full color wiring diagram and is laminated, various things from Ratwell's site on pulling the engine, correct vacuum line hookups, fuel line specifics, etc.

I also have several printouts from here and elsewhere on how to rebuild the CV joints, how to troubleshoot the double relay, testing th eful presure correctly, replacing the door panel rain barriers, and stuff like that.

Being a former dealer boi, the Bentley is your main book. Plus, of course full membership here on the Samba!
Really, my Bentleys have taken a beating and keep on tickin'. I have bought huge 3 ring binders and have put each page in separate sheet protectors. This was a sunday detail with my son to preserve my type 1,2,and 3 Bentley's. Bill

Hello,

I think the orange VW book is similar to the
"Volkswagen Official Service Manual Station Wagon / Bus"
Bentley Publishers, Robert Bentley, Inc., Cambridge, USA
ISBN 0-8376-0094-4

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.



The "How to keep your Volkswagen alive" is nice to understand VW technology basics - but a lot of details of a bay window are missing.

Important is to have an original or a copy of the VW original parts in pictures catalog ("Original Teile Bildkatalog"). Than it is easier to understand all the parts of your car:

Thanks for the stuff that you have been up to Tcash. This is really cool Very Happy

Not a service manual, but the buses owners manual could be added to the list. And maybe it is the most important instruction source for a new bus owner. Might save them a lot of headaches and troubles down the road.

Your providing information sources here potentially can make a lot of buses a lot happier. To bad laziness and poor literary abilities has become such a big enemy to bus welfare.

DO double check some torque specs in the "without guess work" as some have been "up dated"

Specifically the gland nut torque was up graded by 30#

I ordered the hard cover off of Amazon last summer, it does have the electrical schematics in laminated color at the back of the book.
