Jalosie best for rain. Scour the classifieds To find some.

They are rare in the UK since the Outlawed Jalosie in Wales.

A 500 lb boat plus trailer will be ok in flatlands or easy going in hills.

Turn all those toy hose clamps into pot metal and use Oetiker clamps on new fuel line when you get to the FI.

Build up a $500 pot and have Robbie or Colin spend a half-full day with you and your bus, it will save you $5000
I say bullshit to the Oetiker clamps. What a pain in the ass they are. Do get good FI clamps though and use good fuel hose. Liked the outlawed jalousies joke. Reminded me of the three ladies from Wales joke.....

Dead bodies and a case that needs a tear down and evaluation

Not looking too hopeful.

You lift it via the spring plates ( lots of threads on this). I don't like the look, so I went with coil over shocks which leveled it out nicely ( cost about $150 through Summit racing)

Could my shocks be the culprit? I personally don't think so but as someone mentioned above said the rear is supposed to be lower than front. I just feel like the tires should be more vertical, Not tilted either direction when bus is empty.
Thanks

The rear is sagging with no engine in the bus, The top of the tires are closer together, and the bottom are further apart.. So I know it's not right. I've seen other buses and mine looks like its carrying a heavy load all the time I know how to adjust it with the torsion bars. Just don't want to get hurt so asking for tips from people who have had to do the same thing. Thanks!

I'm about to be stripping the interior on Thursday to install the 72 westfalia interior will post pics! Pretty stoked!! Still keeping my eye out for a Sink/Icebox combo to complete the Westfalia though.

did you know that when no one is in the bus, it should like the rear is low? have a couple friends hop in the front seats and see if that looks better.

I love people who text. I restored 5 years ago, welded an I beam to the back of my Volvo wagon, and brake hard in front of texters to avoid deer

It’s good for 5 k a month tax free , plus my tow/ storage business is always first on scene.

Some of us just think fuel injection is cool. Especially the old analog versions. It doesn't matter what's easier or cheaper. Owning a 40-50 year old car is a hobby. If you want it run it.

Did you read the build thread in my sig?

I would NEVER bother to convert a ‘72 to L-Jet.
So many reasons, I wouldn’t even know where to start..

This coming from a guy running L-Jet since 1988.

The only question for you is which carbs to buy.

If you want to run hard, start saving up for an 091.


Yes i read your thread, and it was very useful.

But I have heard about, and seen 72s with fuel injection. and i just feel like it would be my prefered upgrade. If in the end I truly can't get it working right i will get some dual webers.

I forgot to mention the two lower sled tins. There are 8 metal pieces plus the alternator bracket.

The engine tins, heat risers & booster fan pipes are determined by which heat exchangers are used. They will work on any late Bay. If you use the '72-74 exchangers & exhaust use the pieces that go with that set. The '75-'78 exchangers use different parts. The parts affected are the two front tins, the two pipes that connect the heat exahangers to the heat control flaps, the two pipes that connect to the booster fan hoses and the alternator bracket for support.
If you want to use the fuel injection from the '76 you'll need to add a nipple to accept the fuel return line.

This is how they came. A nipple could be added to the top of any tank or even into the filler pipe.
Also for the FI, you'll need an air cleaner stand from a late bay (circled) & to cut a rectangular hole for the ECU to mount

I think mounting an 091 bell housing on your 3 rib transmission is a reversible solution to the fitment problem. Someone else with more experience with that may chime in. I think another solution is to cut some off the end of the input shaft, but that kinda ruins that part.

engine will be a 76, also I don't have a 091
I have the stock 72 transmission 002 for now..


Grateful,
The 2.0 does not bolt up to the 002 by virtue of its larger 228 mm clutch plate.

I am not sure that you want to tear up the 002 so you can graft an 091 bell housing onto it. I would endeavor to get an 091 while the getting is good.
