    With that many engines toasted, have you checked to make sure there isnt an issue with the nut between the steering wheel and driver's seat?

    500 miles later= Some serious rod knock and possible spun bearings.

    Time for a 0 mile long block and then this conversion setup is for sale.

    New motor is in and has several hundred miles on it. Left the stock oil pan on and I am sending the shortened one back to the manufacturer for a look over.

    OP - Are you ever in Wilmington, MA?

    Every once in a while I see a tan VW van that is strikingly similar to yours...

    Negative, but I'd be interested to see a picture of it, not many tan ones around.

    too kind thank you for that.

    we are serious but schedules are ridiculous right now. if we pulled the trigger it would sit it's something we talk about ALL the time though so it will happen. will hit you up for sure. just for the purpose of conversation, what do you think about that RI '86? the details read pretty nice to me as a noob.

    a buddy of mine took the plunge about three years ago and travels around CO with their youngin' + pup, the photos make us stupid jealous.

    The funny thing is that EFI makes perfect sense to me. Carbs, on the other hand... don't.

    No, it was blue. Maybe even blue and tan. I saw it in their driveway by my stepdaughters.

    I'll see about a few pics. It looks like it's done up just like that tan one you have.


    Also, I have a Subaru engine for you. Just so happens there's a car that's wrapped around it at the moment but hey, it's all there and running. Check the FS section.

    I mean, who doesn't want a COBB-tuned Vanagon?
