    Jeff you can re-use copper washers just by re-annealing them by putting a flame on them & make them cheery red.

    If you drill toward your hand sooner or later you will definetly stop…..a mechanic would do a really rough job usually so no you would not a make a mechanic…the sump plate could be reinforced with an aluminium ring under the nuts if you could fit longer studs, I seem to remember doing something like this many years ago…..I bet the bug loves new oil and a clean filter screen

    Man it's a dirty job to do an oil change on one of these things… When i do an oil change on my ford, i don't even need to jack it up.

    The old Holden grey motor never had an oil filter either. Yeah, nah. ya got me there. never seen a paper punch to make gasket holes. give ya credit there. You can anneal copper (soften) by heating red hot and quenching (cooling in water) It will then conform and seal noice – just like a newy. Thank christ you didn't get degreaser all over yer safety glasses!!! You can tell I'm commenting as I'm watching, eh 🙂 next to bugger all oil in the g/box, jeez no noises? Good vid, thanks Jeff. Oh, and thanks Mrs Jeff

    Hey there is now a bunch of fuel line after the filter. The decomposition of the hose and fuel line after the filter is the reason for keeping the filter in the engine bay close to final use area. Been driving bugs for 45 years and no filter has ever leaked on me. Cheers

  • 2LitrePeter

    Hi Jeff. Fuel filter should go after the fuel pump. Without positive pressure, the filter will clog up quicker and cause restriction, potentially collapse the hose and definitely leave Mrs Jeff stranded somewhere. Just fit a good quality filter in the factory location. Happy travels!

    this project is dear to my heart as we had several bugs in the family when i was growing up all owned by my grandmother. turned out my future best friend's dad was the general manager for the dealership. great history too mrs. jeff!

    Hey Jeff, I believe there's a little trick to get more life out of old copper crush washers involving heating and rapid cooling, worth a Google. eBay also have those universal kits for copper washers which are handy. Cheers!

    You might want to try a lock nut on the adjustment bolt that keeps backing out. Not a nylon one just a regular one tightened against the bracket the bolt is mounted in. I don't know about this one but that is common practice for adjustment bolts on many carbs. The same method is often found on gas cable adjusters to keep them in place.

  • tx5brent

    A few tips that will hopefully help.

    That bolt that keeps falling out needs a jam nut that you can toghten up against the bracket that will lock it in place.

    If you reuse copper washers, a trick to help them seal again is to heat them up to red hot using your map gas torch then dunk them into water, this helps soften them back up.

    Jeff, the big concern with 3d printing is the design of the part you need. The few car parts I have printed have all sorts of curves and tend to be challenging to reverse engineer. Mostly I have designed car handles and interior accessories.

    Jeff with all that sludge in the engine it would have been better to put some engine cleaner in first run it and drained it out then put in the clean oil.

    Mr Micklem you can re-use copper crush washers' because you heat them with a blow-torch because copper is soft LOVE YOUR WORK keep going from the UK.

    I don't understand the rush. Why not just work on something else until the gasket set comes in? No offense, love the channel, just seems like you could do something better than cutting custom gaskets when they are still available.

    How did you reconnect the fuel lines together in the engine bay?
