What's inside my tunnel?
 
I just finished shortening my pan for my buggy, yes I do some work occasionally, and thought some of yall might want to know what's inside the tunnel. I couldn't remember seeing this info before and with the "never ending" gas line replacement thread that's been hanging around I thought it might help some. Maybe Jon can some supply some festive photos to go along with this one.:funny: :

Are these pics posted in the "Tech Bin"? If not, they should be. This will give us another reason to give newbies crap about not searching.:grin:



Or oldbies like me who are just too damn lazy to look for themselves. :wink:



Nice work guys.

Thanks guys. These photos are really helpful to those of us who are going to be shoving stuff into the great unknown (I mean gas lines, clutch cables, etc.)

Good examples of early VS. late pans too. No inside heat cables on the early pan (Nicks) and it has the choke.

This might sound crazy but...

Did the inside of the tunnel smell of gas when you opened it up? That is if the fuel lines weren't cut at that time.

mine smelled normal. Just greasy and dirty, that's about it though.

The fuel line in mine had been plugged up for awhile from the looks of it. I did find a penny though! No smell that I noticed.

Re: What's inside my tunnel?
 
Early on when I started investigating gas fumes in my bug, my Dad (a VW mechanic from the 60s/70s) told me that sometimes gas sits in the tunnel and can stink up the car. I'm guessing provided there is a leak or bad seal or perhaps fuel could just penetrate (leech through the poreous medal) through the medal tube and fumes be held in the tunnel.
