I store my 76 Westy in Huntington Beach. The Funky Luv bus needs a little love before we head of on a three month road trip. I have the following issues to be dealt with.

Valve Adjustment
Vibration in the clutch
Fuel Gauge Repair
Brake Check
Installing a second Aux Battery

Im looking for a reputable and affordable VW shop that can keep us safely on the road. Any recomendations welcome.

I would normal try to do most repairs myself but I dont have the time or space at the moment.

Thank you!
Ryan

Aeromech seems like a good fit those tasks.

Colin (Amskeptic) is in NorCal this week and headed south then he'll head back east. You might consider him too. Gary (Aeromechanic) in San Diego is a good guy too.

Hi. Check with Ron Fleming or Greg Aronson at FAT Performance, in Orange. May also ask Dave Greiner at ProFormance, also in Orange. Decades of knowledge there.
Bill.
