FINALLY I have one

Post by 64 Notchback » Tue Oct 13, 2015 7:38 am

I am very pleased to say that I FINALLY have a DC :hangloose:
I have been looking for a SC or DC for quite some time and now have one, (whenever on comes up it is either sold, to far away or out of my price range :?) Paid for it this morning and will hopefully be collecting it this week.

It is a 1980/1 T3 2l DC
With a few extra bits and pieces.

I am stoked :drunks:

We do not have many T3 aircooled buses here, you may be the 1st.

Best of luck with her

Thanks for posting Riekert
Well there she is as mentioned before there is a few things that need attention (main thing being the "sticky valve") which I have a replacement one.
Just need some one to assist.

I am told that quite abit of money was spent on her, motor wise, and I am very pleased with it.

I will post the list of things done to her and what I would like to do.

Thanks Terry for putting up with the nagging :shock:

Jess is finally at home safe in the garage :hangloose:

There are a few small things to sort out like the noise she makes when changing gears, (may need a shift rod bush)
Clean up the engine compartment
Find out why the fuel gauge is not working.
And the give the motor a good service.

Overall I am very pleased with it
