Don did the Tech Corner for air-cooled
dual port engine: "I learned
something this week" - his type
II (1970 bus) was running like crap
(sic), missing, using a lot of gas.
There was like a vacuum effect in the
intake manifold gaskets. Both had cuts
in them, the air got sucked in, not a
good thing! He changed the parts, took
off part of the motor, took off
carburetor, loosened generator and
shroud, took off the top. Mike and Dan
joined in with the discussion. The
gasket comes in black, red, and
silicone. Any dual port engine has
these gaskets on either side of the
carburetor. Don explained on how he
replaced the gasket, it took him an
hour to get it all back together. Don
does not recommend using the
"strap on" gasket. Thank you
Tanya reminded all to pay their dues.
Mike sold the 50/50 tickets: $10 and
$15 were won, both by Danielle
Oosterhaus. Lucky Danny!
Tanya announced the club logo license
plate which Robert passed around for
all to see. It's $10 a plate. A
sign-up sheet was passed around for
all who are interested.
Raffled off were some small items.
Auctioned off by Robert were
"Coca Cola" bus and beetle
matchbox toys, sold to Don for $12.
Upcoming car show: Danny needs to be
where the kids are for the face
painting. We will make sure she will
get a spot close to where the kids
are. Big Jim from the Abate Southwest
Charter of Motorcycles announced they
have shelters and tables and could
loan them to us for the show.
No further business was put on the
table. Tanya closed the meeting.
