You keep making reference to selling…. that big wad of cash is hard to say no to… but a split bus is hard to replace….
Only if someone meets my price. Or I can’t physically drive it anymore.
I think my bug motor and towing and heavy loads I do eats my input haft bearings up also…
My trans builder says towing is not helping, but not the real problem. He thinks it’s the torque of the Subi engine.

My transmission is done. Picking up tomorrow. Probably start ripping the engine out soon as I get it home.

Engine out. Transmission tomorrow. Need to do CV boots while I’m in there to.

Transmission in. Putting new CV boots on, two were ripped and the other two ready to rip. Should have engine stabbed shortly.

All back together and running. Just got to burp the coolant and get it full. Should be test driving tomorrow.

That motor looks funny…😘😘
Where you headed now? The road calls!
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantMarch 30, 2021 at 8:53 amPost count: 1050John JonesModeratorMarch 30, 2021 at 9:02 amPost count: 7863
Nice knocking that out… You got your RV back! I hope I am able to go hangout with you!!! 😎 I wonder if Newbold will be there?BBWBParticipantApril 27, 2021 at 2:11 pmPost count: 1050
Last couple weeks, I took my trailer and modified it for better motorcycle hauling. Widened the deck, new fenders made from old closet doors, new front frame for stronger tie downs, and some new tail lights. My trip last year revealed some weaknesses to be addressed.

Getting down to the wire. Been fussing with the transmission, getting the break in oil changed. Checking bolts, that sort of thing. Then coming home from my grandsons BD party, the engine started balking while on the power in 2nd and 3rd gear. Thought maybe I was overheating at first. But that wasn’t it. Talked to Arron out in Cali, he said most likely the fuel pump. When they start to go bad, pressure drops and the engine will lean out. Sounded, and felt like what was happening. So on Monday, I dropped $250ish on a new pump and low pressure side filter set-up. Installed it all, and seemed fine on my 40 mile test loop. Stopped at a friends house for an hour or so and headed home. Started doing the same thing again. Well, shit! Now what. Pulled the plugs, they looked good. Put my buddies’ fuel pressure gage on it. Good static(90psi), good dynamic(45psi). On a whim, I changed out the coil pack. Did another test run of 20 miles, stopped for 40 minutes to let the heat soak happen again. This time I had good power while accelerating. Hoping it was just the old coil pack dying. I think I have it fixed, but I don’t have warm fuzzy’s having to leave next Monday. So I’ll do some day trips in the next few days to make sure it’s good, and build up my confidence. Hope to see you all early next week.

Yeah fuel pump isn’t it. They either work or don’t. I’ve never had one “kinda” work.
Id go after the crank sensor. Sounds like it’s getting lost, like a rev limiter??John JonesModeratorMay 26, 2021 at 6:37 amPost count: 7863
OH man…. Sucks to be wondering about your drive train right before a big ol trip… Hope to see ya early next week!!! I am still hoping to get to sneak out with ya for a day at least!! The local desert race has thrown a wrench in my laid back time schedule….. 😎
