totally torn down now...

I've got scoring on all my lifters around the edge of the surface that comes into contact with the cam.  The scoring is  especially apparent on the 3/4 side.  There is also a rough / scored surface on the  each lobe of the cam.   :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

Bearing surfaces all look good though
:haha:

Any ideas on what caused the mayhem?

These came in the mail today from a friend in Idaho.  I know they aren't VW but I still like them. 



Anyone have a lead on where you might find new amber sealed beam light for fogs. like these?  I think they are 60's ford originally.

Check at NAPA.
They have all kinds of old stuff available.
It will be just the size of the light usually, like a 5" or 7" sealed beam.
You can always tint one with hobby paint for R/C car Lexan bodies.
That is what I used on my tail lights.

The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

That will make it tough.  I picked up a 6V light at a swap meet and did not notice it was a sealed beam until after the cash transfer.  I got lucky when it worked.  All makes swap meet at PIR/Expo may be a good place to search.  Well, it is a good place to search but now you have a good reason to go.   :2up:

Buddy in Idaho pulled two of these and an old backup accessory light off of a early 70's Ford courier.  I mounted this one and the backup light is going on soon.  Im going to give the other lamp as a Christmas Gift

I put one light on the front of the Thing and now everyone asks where the other one is.  Some folks just don't get it.  :huh:

No kidding!  If I had a nickel for that and every time I heard " hey, your trunk is open". Because of my standoffs ...

Thank you sir!  You might certainly say that.   :2up:


Good news today from Oreilly Auto Parts.   I walked in and showed the guy a picture and gave him a short description.  After giving me a "this is going to be tough" look, he went to the back and produced a giant book.  After 10 minutes of searching he located the light.  Wagner 4415-a.  
Thank you!
They also supply them cheaper than any online supplier I could find.
Turns out, this lamp is used as an accessory on Harley Davidson motorcycles.  Who knew?
