I'm pretty sure I know why the old one failed.

The oilpan bolts that go into the carrier have washers at least 3/16ths of an inch thick, the others don't.
Without the washer the bolt is long enough to bottom out and one of the center bolts didn't have a washer on it.
Bolt bottomed out and cracked the housing bigger'n shit.

Some meathead must've done an oilpan gasket and mixed up the bolts as I found a random one in the block with a thick washer.

Hey Super Nate

I've been lurking along throughout your G-Bus project and I don't know whether to be stoked or suicidal

Amazing journey.

Good luck with moving forward. Literally ...and backward.

I've been through both of those emotions myself,sometimes at the same time.

Thanks.

Under the knife, again.

Due to a small SNAFU getting everything together to put the transmission in, I've decided not to wait to shorten the body again.

It will be at least a week before I have what I need to install the transmission so I'll use this time to hopefully have the endcap moved forward.

While I'm at it the rear half of the entrance door is going bye bye too.

I don't need an opening that big and I will need the floor space after shortening the body.

Weekly photo update

I finished the cutting and hacking over the weekend and managed to move the rear body section just about into position.

A little tweaking this week and it will be time to start buttoning things back up.



I managed to move the body by myself but I had to get creative to get it done and not kill myself in the process.
Two tiedowns and some leverage got er done.

Looks like you have room for a big tool box now.
You going to use a hammer to install that window again?

That was my first thought, until I remembered he pulls a toy hauler with it.
