After the mice/rats tore up wiring and made the carpet stink to high heaven, I am against a deadline of a week from Wed to have the car functioning for the Type 3 Invasion. Man, I hate vermin...

I just took my battery out and had to vacuum sunflower seeds out.

Good luck! I hope you make it!

I have been mouse free since sticking dryer sheets in all my projects. Don't ask me why it works!

Got the slave cylinder and new mount in. This was a 3 handed job due to the middy header pipe location. Oigh.

I had a bug that had been sitting in a driveway and I pulled a bunch of spare rib bones from behind the fan shroud.

After sitting for a couple weeks while she was on vacation, my mom’s car would barely run once it started. The air intake and part of the filter was packed with acorns.

I think I have finally found my no reverse shifter issue. After disassembling everything, cleaning, lubing and starting to reassemble I found that over 27 years, the cables have stretched. While they still slide freely, the left to right shift cable has grown almost 3/8". This has pushed things past their designed travel limits. So, now I am altering some dimensions to accommodate. Hopefully I will have an accessible reverse again, as well as a less vague pattern. Hopefully...

So, something didn’t go right? I have little experience with Type 3s.

This is the custom shift system from 1996 that has failed.

Today. For the 1st time in years, I have air cleaners on this car again.




Those will flow nicely and protect.

Doing away with cable shifting and going with this system on the notch.

Seeing what I have to start with. A few pin holes and some definite work to do, but... this could get interesting.

As you probably know, air flowing over them draws out the heated air from inside the engine compartment. Plus it looks cool!

The shift rod should be a good switch. The one I built for the modified Ford truck gearbox in the Transporter has performed flawlessly for over 70,000 miles.

Was the cable shifter an issue ? I just picked one up hoping it would be better.

Yes. Even new it was finicky. Now, 2+ decades later, it is worse. But... mine is a different style than what is currently out there.
