Not all was sunshine lollypops and rainbows throughout the trip... there was the odd issue here and there just to make things interesting. The patient list is as follows... Adrian and Michelle (mish13) - dropped a cylinder pulling into the Sutton Forest Coles Express service center... not the best thing to have happen to any Kombi let alone an automatic one. They got to the camp allright sitting at the head of the convoy.. albeit very slowly up hills. A couple of early rising members got the prob (carb-related it turns out) sorted before the cruise in the morning tho so no further dramas. John and Christine - melissa got a call during lunch shortly after the Saturday cruise from CHristine saying that they were stranded without a clutch. This I found out from Necro, who enquired as to whether I had a spare cable on board.... which needless to say I did along with every other bit known to man. We gave em a call and told em that all they need do is get a tow to the park and we'd sort it from there. turns out the cable had snapped clean off in the bowden tube after being stretched so far that it had 2 wheel nuts behind the adjusting wingnutnut as spacers! Me, Woz, and Tom the spanner-wench got to it and had the new cable in in a couple of hours. AFter that we got to trying to get the dodgy Weber carb to idle properly... it had been chugging and stalling when warm. AGain, another hour or so of fiddling with the multitude of screws on the carb and swapping out rotor buttons and adjusting timing and such, it was finally made to run beautifully again... and man did it sound good with that Weber and zorst! Schmo - Schmo ended up silently suffering with a crook distributor for most of the event... adjusting it no less than 5 times to correct flat spots and stumbles and jerks that would keep appearing at the drop of a hat due to the timing retarding and advancing of it's own accord. Still perservering with it until I get the replacement stock SVDA into BC's ass. There was also a slight issue with second and first gears grinding and crunching for no apparent reason that made itself evident on Saturday... then dissapeared ajust as suddenly. havent worked that one out still. Ray & Da Boyz (kommodius) - Had a slight issue with a dodgy ignition switch I believe causing a spot of not wanting to start type behaviour during the Sunday cruise. As far as I'm aware tho he sorted it himself. Woz and Alice (Van Housing/Alice in Kombiland) - Nothing immediately debilitating here, but they had a bit of a scare when smoke started emanating from Woger's engine bay during the trip up Black Mountain. The cause was found to be a fair quantity of seemingly fresh oil burning off the tinware. Still havent positively identified the source of the oil... and I don't think Woz really wants to find out! Marty (Wild1) - worth a mention as altho he had no breakdowns, Marty managed to wreak havoc among the convoy members behind him by belching out insane ammounts of smoke from Huey's zorst... gotta admit it did look fairly impressive! Still all in all not a bad effort for a convoy of 42 Kombis from all walks of life... a great testament to the ruggedness and simplicity of repairs of the Kombis themselves, and also to the power of teamwork and Kombi CLub comaraderie.
