I vote em both for some money owed...the green motor was opposed to go in the yellow champagne..got it running and decided not to take it apart...the green one now is all together,lowered and a daily..then the tranny smoked now we're converting Otto a 4 spd.
The yellow one has nothing in it as thebmice had ruined it...the floors,frama and suspension are still very nice with the brown on the underside and the brick red in the interior...I took some other bits and pieces off it and got the other one in better shape.
Gonna give the yellow one to my buddy Skills for the conv on the green bus..
Update#1: that's the wrong diagrams. Apparently it has 79 wiring lol
Update#2: I went to change the valve cover gaskets and one of the handles were snapped! Fml how f'd am i? Do I need a new head or can I replace the lever?
..dude your in for a long ride.
if these probs are throwing you for a loop now...wait till you have to "really" start umping into this thing...motor,trans,electrics,brakes,paint,body,se als,glass....the list goes on and on.
and they think VW's are cheap and quick to jump in on.
yeah dude i feel you.
this shop is killin me too and with the cost of the build and running deal it's making me scared but it will all work out we're hoping.
so glad i have my bus,stock motor,converted 4 spd and all original paint...love it.
it's come together dude...just keep pressin forward!!
yeah dude.....after working on vw's for an easy 15yrs...i have never had the chance to do a newer bay type 4...Skils and i had the motor and trans as a whole on the ground in an hour..
with a beetle the motor and trans option,hits the rear apron before the nosecone clears the torsion...so its best to do the motor remaval then the trans...which takes longer than even the type 4 bus motor...
