don't want to monkey with something that runs so good. Bought this engine years ago for a net of $250...i'd say i got my money's worth.
Keep driving. Sometimes a VW has a heart and you just have to let it live. Like Vdubtech's Rustybus, you could have a wholly unexpected several years of good fun.

I pulled the Lincoln into the garage when I pulled out the bus the other day. Seriously thinking of leaving it parked in the garage for the remainder of the summer, and alternating between the Harley and the bus. The only down side is, I'm not too keen on leaving the bus out in the rain. I've got some minor surface rust around the windshield, and a few other places....that have stayed minor for the 10 years I've owned it, as it is always garage kept. I know I need to fix, but realistically, may not happen until fall.

FI ...8 completely solid lifters.... now it's both kinda noisy and leaky, but she sure runs good!

(Read up on our windshield removals/bondo/paint/reinstall procedures, they are doable in a weekend.
