has anyone replaced the bushing and pin for the center pin? I know the one on the SO42 needs to be replaced. Just don't know how much of a job this is. I don't want to pull the beam

Search around here someplace. Surely I posted some pix of it when we did the job on Craig form Smelay's the Hatch. :-k

I've no done it with the beam in. It's no fun. There is a good tutorial on the Samba by Hazetguy or is it Hazetman?
I rented the reamer I think from WW??

thanks guys. I am trying not to pull anyone off of the camper if I don't have to which is why I would prefer to keep the beam in the bus. If I have to pull it, I might as well swap it with the beam in the single cab.

Done in and out. Much easier with it on the bench. Way too much work to remove it if just to do that job though. :-s

Do get the proper reamer, it's a must! ;-)

the steering on the camper is super loose. I got under it and had one of my kids turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could see the center pin needs replacing, tie rods, and drag link. So with the flipped spindles I will be putting on, the tie rods are good to go. Just need the center pin and drag link so I guess I will be swapping the beam instead.

Here is that thread...

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewt ... center+pin

I am only reading up on this now since after driving the camper to Leo Carrillo and back, I really got tired of moving the damn steering wheel so much. I loved the drive but having to move the wheel so much to stay straight was annoying. Especially after driving the SC with a much tighter steering, I now want this.

So can someone tell me how long it takes if the beam was out of the bus? I still do not plan on removing the beam but want to know in general how long it takes. WW rents the reamer but does someone own it here?

Do rent the reamer! It's a must have tool! You have to hammer out the old bushings but I have made a tool to "drive" the new ones in without having to hammer on them. Last time I did that was on Turbo's red bus and with the beam in place. :cool:

I was going to rent the reamer if no one here had one. Maybe I could bring the camper down to you with a 12 pack of water ( Corona ) and we change it out?

I rented the reamer.
I did mine with the beam in place. There's no reason to go through all that work of pulling the beam unless you are rebuilding the whole thing.
It's not a fun job, but it is low tech.

thanks Dan. Maybe I will just get all the parts and run down to Ivan's for help. I wonder if I can get through his garage opening being so damn high. Yes I am still getting used to being high in the air.

If you’re going to pay with beer, that job is worth a couple of cases of CASH coffee stout . The brewery is right up your alley. :-P

Agreed. Corona payments these days will only get you an oil change.
