Westy pop top lifting assembly problem

I had a look at the assembly, and sure enough it shows the same wear as others have noted – David and Neil, (and Neil’s Vanagon Wiki article on assembly worth a look).

And a good Samba thread on subject here.

So what to do? A copper bushing as Neil did or a bronze shaft as David did? Or both?

Will report back.

July 2016, reporting back. Did a fix of the problem, post is here
