« Last post by campinator on February 15, 2019, 05:03:09 PM »
You have many engine options, all depends on the $$$ you're willing to spend and how handy you are.  If you decide to go the least expensive path and rebuild your 1.9, you might want to upgrade to the 2.1 cooling system.  Other than that, GoWesty has a full line of rebuilt engines (pricey!).  Stay away from the infamous and well known  budget rebuilds (you get what you pay for).  As for shops, the only place I know and trust is on Long Island, NY, probably too far for you.  I'm sure there is someone in your area with the expertise and tools needed to fix Vanagons.  Stanagon here on the board might know someone up there... Good Luck!

Vanagon concerns / Westfalia Engine Replacement suggestions
« Last post by TallPaul on February 12, 2019, 01:23:40 PM »
So it looks like I might need a new engine for an '85 1.9l Wesftalia, and am wondering what recommendations (~ 2/2019) people have for sources to peruse out on the web.    Engine overheated due to a broken coolant belt and the head gaskets are leaking and preliminary investigation is a long slow death without replacement.  I've poked around on the web but am open to all sources and don't see any other posts in here on the site.  Did I miss 'em?

If anybody's done the Subaru upgrade recently & willing to put in some insights into that would be appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance!

My '71 needs some attention and it has been tough to find a shop where I can send it.  Looking for quality resto of a bus that lives outside.  Not a showcar.  It is an original paint '71.  Needs minor rust repair and then mechanical work.  Been talking to some folks in Florida but there must be something closer....

Eurovan concerns / Looking for parts (Eurovan) web sites
« Last post by jkohler on December 10, 2018, 05:29:38 PM »
I have a '93 Eurovan and am going to do a few things. First, CV Axel work on the drivers side and second changing Timing Belt and water pump. Does anyone have some good sites to go to for Eurovan parts?? That would be greatly appreciated. My '93 only has around 135,000 miles and doesn't see winter (I live in North western PA) so it sits in storage 5 months of the year! Thanks in advance for any help.

The latest lego models are really cool. I'm considering buying the lego VW Bus. I've noticed that there are many corresponding VW Packages that you can buy.

Here is an overview about all corresponding packages: https://aircooledcommunity.com/blog/volkswagen-lego-best-deals-lego-vw-bus-vw-beetle-set/

Hey guys. Found this checklist when buying a VW Beetle. It covers all rust issues, has many touch points with the VW Bus so might be interesting.
