All packed and ready to go. We set the alignment and installed the last piece this morning…the pedal pan.

Shipper showed up just before 5. He had it loaded in 10 minutes and then headed west.
I hope you enjoy it when it gets there Buddy.
Thanks for letting us play with it.
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantJanuary 22, 2021 at 7:48 pmPost count: 2165

A few “as found” pictures that I may not have shared earlier.WAY2COOLParticipantJanuary 28, 2021 at 10:55 pmPost count: 267
I noticed on the last video that you don’t use a spring from the throttle bar centre bracket back to the body …as a return spring.
I have my new Type 4 2 litre motor with 40 Webers ,in and thumping.
The current setup has the return spring fitted ,however it does make the accelerator pedal a bit heavy going.
Should I be able to run without the return spring ala Buddy’s bus

Hey Kim, there are secondary return springs on Buddy’s engine…I put one on each of the carburetors, a little spring between the air filter base and throttle shaft.
That way we avoid putting spring pressure through the linkage bar.RustabusParticipantJanuary 29, 2021 at 11:16 amPost count: 2165
Can’t wait for beach photos!!!👍👍👍WAY2COOLParticipantJanuary 29, 2021 at 4:02 pmPost count: 267
Thanks Franz. That’s a great innovation.I’ll give it a try.
Is the top of the spring held by a split pin through the base of the air filter ?
…..you know the deal
