so I just got the bug home, first time i really got to check it out with out feelin like i was being watched, ok I know it's a 66 it's not going to be perfect, but I'm kinda disapointed with it (at lest at the moment) I dont know why I cant explain it just not liking it whole bunches at the moment ,yeah the car looks good,it's got NO power (40hp Ithink)
the 12v swap seams to be a hacked job (to me at least) dont knoe got to get some sleep, been up all day and I worked last night< maybe Im just tired, got off work at 8am it's 8 pm, woke up at 930pm last night so Im going to bed and Ill sleep on the whole bug thing, see where my heads at in the morning


wow wrote more than I was going to

well thinks for reading

l8r steven

nah I think i was just tired last night Ive messed with it for a couple of hours this morning gettin an idea for what I need to do, think it's going to be a fun little bug to drive around this summer, I might have to rise it up some for me to enjoy it more, No im not going to cut it up, not event going to switch motors, but I have a quetion, it grinds going back into first gear
when comin to a stop, but if you come to a complete stop it wont, is this some what normal or does it need to be rebuilt,

any ways Im going to keep it(for now)

l8er

steven

Needs rebuilt. Run it till it breaks.

You could check to be sure that the clutch is fully engaging first.

Maybe it's got a "crashbox" tranny from an earlier bug. It's over 40 years old and who knows? Maybe somebody swapped it out. The early trannies didn't have synchro's for 1st gear, so they would grind like a son-of-a-gun when you tried to push it into 1st when it was still moving.

Just a thought.

Congrats, too, and welcome to the family.

yeah Im thinking it's just a old clunky trans It runs good and I can get over the whole haven to come to a full stop to grab first

the clutch is newer and grabs really good
the little 40hp motor starts up on the first turnover every time

need to find some air shocks for the front so i can rise it up a few inches
(the lowwer adjusters hit something)
