    make sure she learns to maintain fuel lines, and electrics!
    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    ^^^ yep, she is pretty good little mechanic. Knows how to change oil, tires, check everything, etc. She hung out in the garage with me for years as I tinker.

    Ive done time with a 68 and 70 bug. 68 caught on fire, I only paid $25 and a 12r so all good. Had to replace the cardboard floors about every week.

    Left the car on the side of a dirt road outside KC when it dies on way to work. Years later cops show up at the house asking why my plates were involved in bank heist. I keep the plates when a get rid of a car now.

    I've got my greasy old wire-bound b&w copy like the one in the pic.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Rebuilt my bus engine twice using that book. One of the best instructional books ever. Glad to see it's still around.

    Yeah, About those fuel lines. I was on my way to Baker the last weekend of 2016. I pulled 'ol westy up onto my concrete pad to pack my things and noticed a drip drip underneath the engine bay. Turns out I had a hairline fracture on the inside of less than 2 inches of line between the fuel rail and the injector. Gas was dripping on a hot exhaust pipe. End of plans. Found out how really easy it is to go up in flames. Now I open the bay and watch the system at least once a year. And this is after a fairly recent engine replacement.

    Skajah, Iíd replace that fuel rail with these: and use the correct clamps that donít bodge up the fuel line
    also get compatible fuel lines that match modern fuels! Ethanol and other additive eat up that old fuel line fast! (This is applicable to all older cars- they all can burn!)

    I was wondering that too. I just saw this on fb(pic only).My 67 came stock with a 1500 and it had some jump with the 1600(single carb) I put in it but maybe not enough for RV weight. Older(50ís) were geared super low. That gearing with the add on 5th gear and 1777 should do it. Not sure Iíd have the heart to put fuel injection in a split

    I don't mean to disparage the vintage models, but I came across this modern version of a Westy style camper and while it's pretty ugly it has all the functions for just around $50k.
