Hi new to the forum.
I have a 54 MK VII that is in need of restoration.
I am the third (technically) owner.
The first bought the car in England and gave it to his daughter.
It has been sitting since 1987, but travelled the world (via US Military Officer) before that.
I have sent the carbs off for cleaning and have the engine running.
Next is clutch and brakes. Then I’ll have to decide what to do about the body.
In looking at the postings I noted that my car came off the line just before Jerry Theis.
I have attempted to send him a message but it came back.
Any info in contacting him would be greatly appreciated.
My immediate issue is the oil seal on the canister. XKS Unlimited was unable to send me the correct one. I have been trying to get to the correct size by purchasing packs of 25 from McMaster Carr. But can’t seem to get there.
