Yea it sure did suck, but I still have my '58 RHD ragtop bug to numb the pain (plus I know where 2 more single cabs are, just need to talk the old timer in to selling them)

Ah, a Porsche engine, I've never done one of those. I wonder what the gap is on those.

Not sure, I never checked because I'm unable to do it anyway. You've
got to have some sort of special feeler gauge that is bent or something
in order to reach them. That price was even through a friend of the family! OUCH!!

I've also got to have the oil cooler orings replaced. Another hard as crap
part to get to. Though the engines are bullet proof some of the silly parts
that have to be replaced are overly difficult to get to.

They sell a couple different types of bent ones. I guess the gap will determine if you can use a vw one or not. They are pretty cheap too. I think mine was 8.00.

In fact I wish I had the time/money/space/skills to fix any old vehicle up, I keep hoping the people who are selling the house next door to us will give me the workshop that is on the property (it's closer to my house than theirs) even though I know it will never happen.

The double cab is the best air-cooled VW ever made. Tell me yours has the ramp on it...

No, there was an option on the single and double cabs to have an access ramp for the bed on the passenger side. I've seen a couple of them at Bug-O-Rama over the years. I'll see if I can find the pics.

He's right.
I've seen them as well.
Always wondered if anyone cared about the paint on the ramp touching and scraping the ground.

No, the one I'm thinking of wasn't the Low Loader. Instead of the access door swinging to the side to let a ramp out, the access door IS the ramp. I coudl swear it was on a double-cab as well. I'll have to dig through my pics. I could be wrong.
