I am considering a trek 300 miles to go and get a QSW.
I have a couple of options on how to get it back.
Just want some feedback.
I had an 87 QSW with 220K that my brother gave me and sadly I parted with it for a fox due to a MPG tradoff.
I wish I kept it, but it was a beater.
I have five other vw's right now including a vanagon, and am not that leary of the quantum woes.
I wondered if anyone has ever tried towbarring a QSW.
I don't have a trailer to haul it, I don't want to drive it 300+ miles home with an escort, and I do not want to consider a flatbed pickup.
So... I thought, I could drive down, pull the front skin, and drill the bumper to fit a towbar and pull it home in neutral with my trailblazer.
Additionally and alternatively, I decouple the CV's at the drive flanges (fingers crossed at each star point 6mm) remove them at each wheel and pull it home that way too.
Surveying the sanity gauges on the vortex.
I would really like anyones take on this endevour.
OR, I could give it a mini-tune and fluids rundown and stress-port it gingerly 300 miles, but again, it would be risky.
Any ideas? Can the syncro handle towing in neutral?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
If I can get it home, I have plans for it and the spares it comes with, 2.2 CIS-E Blown anyone?
