Hello all! We (the wife and I) are DJBus. We are the recent owners of a 1971 VW Transporter with the 1600cc. This bus NEEDS WORK!! Big work, but I plan to do most of it myself. It has rust, but not on the main frame rails just a couple outriggers. The engine has recently been rebuilt and I managed to get 37.5 mpg on the way from TN to VA! But a very odd thing happened. The hinged piece of the accelerator pedal has broken. One of the eyes on the pedal part has just plain sheared off. My question is have you all ever seen this happen? If so, what was the solution. I cant just take off the base, it's welded.
