    The BEST Bus on Earth!

     

    I was having a hard time getting the BBOE to shift into gear when the engine was running, so I played with the clutch free play and got it to at least let me put it into first or reverse. But it would grind a bit  when going into gear and would start to move on me even with my foot pushing the clutch all the way in. I emailed JJ and he said to check the whole clutch cable for any frays and the clutch cable tube to make sure the welds hadn’t busted off or anything. I checked all that and it all seemed fine. Played with the clutch free play some more and still wasn’t right. So JJ gave the go ahead and I pulled the engine. First time doing it and man was that intimidating. JJ wrote me some good instructions though… ha! I pulled the engine and took some photos of the throw out bearing and all parts of the clutch and sent them off to JJ (Ill post those below). When we talked on the phone after that he said everything looked fine… So I was super confused but we still decided it would be best just to replace everything since I already had the engine out. I grabbed a clutch kit and new clutch cable in Salt Lake and installed it all and put the engine back in. Took me a while but I got it done! I still don’t know exactly what was wrong but now the BBOE is shifting like a dream! Im psyched it all worked out!

    Thanks for all the help JJ!

    Muffler dick!

    a shot from redding friday…. The BBOE… and Johnny… “Master blaster” cleaning up the OG spare tire tray for the Beige Barndoor!

    I really love this bus…  Kevin and cole both told me this was like driving a “regular car” compared the non interior’d Barndoor… 😀  😀

    The BBOE really does feel like that. You can just sit back and cruise!
