My VW camper was in the garage for a good few weeks as the pushrod tubes were replaced. Due to a seal breaking, the camper was leaking oil, badly. We've had it back for a couple of weeks... and now I've discovered, to my horror, that the problem isn't fixed. It looks like the crankshaft seal has gone as well. Oh joy.
But finding a mechanic that enjoys working on VW aircooled engines isn't easy. However, I'm compiling a list of aircooled mechanics around Gloucestershire and I'll post them up here soon.
