I have a gas cap for that if you need it.

Gordo!

The last set I looked at rebuilding (bus) had the cylinders so incredibly rusted and corroded I did not believe new parts/rubber were ever going to seal properly again. 

Corrosion in the bore of the caliper body is not a problem.  Only the piston has to be smooth and rust free.  Unlike an engine where the sealing devices (rings) are on the piston, the seal of a caliper is fixed in the groove in the cylinder, so the piston only has to seal against the rubber seal.

Ok, that makes sense.  I'll take a look.  Hopefully this weekend.   My welding of massive exhaust leaks under Bart the Bus are taking up the next little bit of sunny weather when it returns and then I'll get the Beetle up onto the jack stands.   Meanwhile, I've somehow misplaced a fairly large Ar/CO2 gas cylinder for my 110v welder.   How exactly do I do that?  I can understand the dozens of smaller tools and often parts that I misplace on a weekly basis.  But a large gas cylinder that weighs 50+ pounds?   What the heck?   And because I'm fairly stubborn I refuse to give up and give in and just take the tank off the 220v welder.   Nope, not doing that!

Classifieds / WTB: bell housing end to fit bus type 4 engine

And you likely know why.   So I can attach a starter motor to it and bolt it to an engine outside a bus to start it.   Then I can work on it while running before reinstalling the engine.
