Changed the oil & filter, replaced the oil lines, adjusted the valves, cleaned the carb, and replaced a broken generator pulley. Also split the case for biblethumpens new motor good thing too, too much silicone used when putting it together, even had silicone blocking an oil hole in the main bearing.

Oh and painted the trans for the rail.

Installed the front, rear and passenger side quarter windows. Pulled a new wire harness. Now scratching my head how to wire it all up!

Manny, To make it simple use a 63 wiring diagram.

diagram vintagebus.com/wiring/bug-62-65.jpg

key vintagebus.com/wiring/...65-key.jpg

and use an aftermarket fuse box with ATO fuses.

Thanks Daryll! That wiring diagram looks a little easier to follow than the one supplied in the EMPI Universal Harness I bought, PN:9466. I did swap out the supplied fuse box with the EMPI Weather-Proof GM style Fuse Box PN:9470. It uses the modern fuses and gives me 4 more circuits for accesories.

Not today but Sunday we ran the Log Corral Trail to power line trail from Bartlett to the old SR 87. Had to winch up one spot on a waterfall due to being hi centered one time and ran the last four miles with a totally collapsed and locked left front suspension. 22 miles with an average speed of 19.6 mph. No video or pictures of us but here is a link with Jeeps.

When I got out of the trail I had to pull the drivers turkey legs and remove the pieces of broken torsion leaves that had locked the lower arm. I'm thinking this would be a good trail to rent AzBajas Go Pro and video tape it.
