Hey guys, it's been awhile.

Got sidetracked from this '52 project with my bus. Now that it's 95% done, time to get back on the splitty!

Engine look familiar Dave(NO_H2O)?

Out of the smack black bug and into this.

Good to see the old 2275 is serving you well. It had a good torque cure that should do well in the bus. We missed you here but I knew you would be into the bus for a while as soon as I saw pix of it. Nice find and nice build to bring it back and update it. Love that bus.

What pump are you using to scavenge the oil from the turbocharger?

So please school me on these scavenger pumps.

Assuming since turbo is below th pan, there is no way for gravity to help with allowing turbo oil to drain properly?

Is it common to have the out let drain to where the oil dipstick or vent would go? Need some clarification on why, the outlet does not feed into oil pan area? Can this be used this way with a dry sump setup?
Pondering this approach for a type 4 in my bug down the road.
Thanks in advance,
Alex

Ps last question before Xmas �� with regard to the hours discusses on the pumps website, are these rebuildable or does one need to send out for 10k hr intervals?

Hi Dave,

Had the trans out of the bus for a 2nd gear down shift grind issue. So since the engine was out, and we had a local dyno day, I brought along the 2276 to play. The engine made 140hp and 130tq. Not too far off the numbers you ran on Jake Raby's dyno many years ago.

Pete

Hi Alex,

I wouldn't know if this pump can be used as a dry sump pump. Decided to drop the oil back into the engine fr the filler spout because it was convenient. There is way to much going on around the sump with this type of header. As for the pump being rebuildable? Don't know. This pump was suggested to be used be a engine builder friend. He has had good experience with them, with no failures.

Pete

Work will start again on the '52. Need to get the trans and motor back into the bus in the next couple of weeks.

Can't wait.

Back to working on this.

Never liked the plastic fender to body gasket. Ordered up the cloth fender welting many years ago and finally got to swapping it in. I didn't like the pre-cutouts of the plastic for the bolt locations. So I punched holes instead and installed. With the holes, it bunches up around the radius which I don't mind as the cloth is in contact all around.





Last night installed the Uniball plates I made. Took pic as I was installing so as you can see bolt missing and loose. It is completely bolted up now.



Have been looking for this MB SLK 55/65 spare wheel for awhile. Have an idea that I want to try. We'll see how it plays out.
