    A rare buy if they are original - if new more than likely made by Empi as a Fuchs replica

    Today I modified the accelerator linkage, and after a lot of mucking around have finally been able to achieve full throttle.
    Now there is no holding me back.

    Removed the rear shift rod
    Cleaned the Shift rod tube with some gunk remover on pull through rag
    Removed the rust off the rear shift rod on the wire wheel and painted it (try and stop the rust coming back too quickly)
    Tonight it goes back in with a heap of grease and new shift rod bushes front and rear.
    Note:
    I replaced the front shift rod bush approx 8 months ago and it is approx 40% worn on the top already, the grease should help :)

    Got the Ute back from a 750kms work journey to Sydney and back, driven by a friend.

    Behaved itself perfectly, and didn't miss a beat...:)

    Put Daisy in the sunshine to dry her right out after all the rain. Finally I can drive somewhere and not get dripped on :)

    Busy day yesterday,
    With the motor and gearbox out I gave the engine bay a spruce up with some white paint, it will do until the restore (another 2 years away)
    Replaced the Fuel Lines, put in the new clutch cable, replaced the CV boots, greased the CV joints and put the gearbox back in.

    Drove six hours without a windscreen. Bit of a head ache now! Watched the ominous storm clouds brewing and narrowly avoided getting a good drenching! Story and photos to follow after I get some sleep.

    pulled the motor, replaced the fuel sender, breather lines and filler neck (it was worst than I thought) and it smells like a volkswagen again... without fumes, which is still a volkswagen smell, just a different volkswagen (?)

    My Kombi smells like damp dust with that oily fuel smell crossed with wet dog :)
    I dont think there's an airfreshner big enough :)
