Thats the plan.

Does anyone know where I can find the stock battery tray holder thing? I welded in a new battery tray and it had threads at an angle for a battery tie down of some sort. I cant find one.

Little update

Finished up the fuel tank and got the motor in with all the new goodness on it.

I bet you found your original fuel hoses on your fuel tank were hard, dry and stiff, like I found mine. I'm glad I changed mine knowing they were 44 years old.
Nice work on your refresh.

I would suggest removing the filter from the distributor area, not allowing fuel lines to be routed inline with the fan belt, and using clamps on the filter after it is relocated. A filter on the high pressure side of the pump should be unnecessary.

Okay motor is in. Started it up last night and it was having a weird idle issue. It was surging randomly. Just a high idle then low then high again. I have been searching but I havent been able to find anyone with my motor that has this problem. It still needs to be timed as well.

it seems to be an issue with the choke. It isnt reseting it self very quickly. There is a spade connector on the carb. Is there supposed to be a wire running to that? I dont recall this having an electronic choke. There is a brown wire with a female connector on the passenger side of the motor that doesnt appear to go to anything. Maybe that could have something to do with it?

I think all VW motors from the early sixties have had electric chokes. Your carb should have 2 electrical connections, both fed with black wires
coming from the coil + terminal (stock setup). The choke won't come off unless the electric heating element is connected. The other electrical
connection if for the idle cutoff (prevents running-on).

Interesting. I only have one wiring running from the Carb to the coil. So from the Drivers side of the carb I have one wire running from a sensor looking thing to the coil. Then on the Passenger side of the carb I have a Plate that can be removed with a Spade connecter on it that is not hooked to anything.

that wire you should just get 12v at it with the key on, the hot side of the coil. 12v opens the idle shutoff solenoid, then other then warms that choke, which has a heating element in it, and gradually opens the chock as 12v is applied. run a wire to each. stock has a wire with 3 female spades, one with two wires and spade on each end. coil>idle solenoid>choke in that order, thought order isnt as large of an issue.

if that didnt make sense, ill try again...

Long time no post! and unfortunately no pics with this post however I will deliver. Once I got the motor buttoned up I parked it and havent really touched it. Ive been spending WAY to much $$ on my other hobby (things that go bang) I am finally working enough overtime to get things rolling again.

Gonna time the motor, any special tools needed other than a timing light? I already set the points in the Dizzy.

As promised pictures. I spent about 3 hours today to wash claybar polish with 1z extra paint cleaner to rid the oxidation then seal with 1z wax. I am pretty happy with the results.

Took the top off to refinish, one of the wonderful OP's was nice enough to belt sand the top and leave grooves. So the project has become more work than anticipated. I will be sanding down all the high spots then using dolphin glaze to even it out. Then one more sand before paint.

Lookin good, man! Paint comes out pretty decent.
Curious where you found that bus? Good condition with a good price, yeah?

Gonna be ready for a lap around the lake this summer?

(Gotta chat with you about moving to NV... Tired of the small *bangs* we get to buy here...)

Some guy in Reno bought it and never registered it, then I picked it up for $1600 and drove it home. Mostly complete. CA title. Minimal rust.

Should be driveable at the end of this month, i'm still waiting on brakes.

NV is much better then Commiefornia when it comes to things that go bang.
