Update on Repairs: shocks, 3rd, 4th and reverse.

The shocks have been broken since just after with their last fixed.  Those shock mounts had been sheared off since before I got her.  Andy fixed them with a welder, but that only lasted a couple days.  New job includes 6 inches of 1/4 in steel on each side.  No shakes anymore!!

Also, revers has been gone for a month, and 3rd and 4th have been terrible.  Had to smash them in!  The Samba forums suggested that the shift coupler had a loose collar.  I had already replaced that!  (Moral: do not trust new parts...)  Again, welding was the answer.  Pulled, welded, reinserted and boom!  All gears back again!  Life is good!
