Working on a local 67 this morning. Test drive last night was funny. I got back to the shop and immediately noticed a large leak....engine oil, but smelled like gas. I pulled the dipstick. Yep. Full to the top. Check out the stance too. Low rear. It has brand new brosal 30/31 carb that we installed last fall. I should probably look at the needle/seat and float level. Bunch of other things wrong too. No brake pedal free play.

Front bearings are the first thing on the list for sure! The front beam had been super tight for years but last Falls trip to Chaco Canyon and its miles of washboard dirt roads seem to have loosened it up! I need a tow hitch!!!! Planning on driving down in my Buggy and would love to tow it home behind the Sundial! [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< Besides that all it needs is a good run through! Smile Smile Smile

Somebody left the ignition on in your bus. The battery is totally dead.

I pulled the front brake drums removed the bearings. They look decent. Did you have some noise? Maybe something else.

Hell yeah.

I was thinking about that weird rattle in your engine. It may be the fins inside the fan shroud have broke their spot welds. When you do the generator job, check that.

Its always a party when Rusty arrives.
