Another Good weekend in the bus out at a place called Ibex. It is about 45 min west of Delta UT. About a 500 mile round trip on the odometer. I went climbing. A friend brought his eurovan. He kept commenting about how surprising my bus was off-road hahah. This is the first stop on the trip I’ve been planning with Derek from Utah for a 3 day cruise/camping trip to Utah’s west desert. I hope you all come! May 17-19. Going to see cool old mining stuff, a hobbit house, hot springs, lots of open space, not a lot of people or gas. Lots of fun! I love my bus! Been almost driving it daily. So fun! Love using this thing </span>John JonesKeymasterMarch 18, 2019 at 7:26 amPost count: 6484
😎 There is no feeling like driving a split bus… It’s a choice for simplicity! 😎BBWBParticipantMarch 18, 2019 at 7:47 amPost count: 820
Cole, you need a “sky deck” cargo rack for that rig. Maybe a tow hitch too. Then you can bring along a dirt bike or two on a light trailer. 🙂

Ya! I need to make or find a rack. I like the one on dan’s mango. Might try to do something like that. I had a gas can and fire wood in my bus this weekend. Would’ve been nice to strap it up too. De-clutter the inside of the busFranzKeymasterMarch 18, 2019 at 9:38 amPost count: 3484

Motor and tank out today.mocking up new exhaust. Also getting ready for new type 4 oil cooler and doghouse fan shroud. Thanks for helping me learn a bit about the tig welder Franz. New flanges for the exhaust new Wolfgang international mid Mount today as well getting some aluminum ready to weld up an oil sump I’m making for a school project. Should be fun. Thanks for the help Franz. Franz has been nice enough to be my advisor for this project 👍🏼Baja MarkParticipantMarch 24, 2019 at 12:15 amPost count: 417
Cool, I’ve always wanted to do the flange mod on the exhaust 👍🏻ColeBModeratorMarch 24, 2019 at 10:51 amPost count: 1547
My project this morning. Getting the filler tube and valve cover ready for the breather setupColeBModeratorMarch 25, 2019 at 12:32 amPost count: 1547
For some reason the new oil cooler type 4 adapter from AA performance didn’t come with long enough studs… so I made some from generator screws. Close up of the new oil cooler and the new exhaust 👍🏼Fan shroud fit perfectly👌🏻 Just had to smash the sides in a bit to fit the new dual carbs thanks Franz for the help with fitting and adjusting the carbs! Fired it up and this thing sounds mean! Excited to drive it with the new carbsgot the new Bilstein shocks on front and back. I don’t know how hard to torque these? I couldn’t come up with a conclusive answer on the samba. Half said 25ft lbs which sounds low and others just said good and tight. RACE YELLOW FOR SPEED AND AGILITY. Another fun day at KCW! Love getting stuff done here!John JonesKeymasterMarch 25, 2019 at 8:24 amPost count: 6484
gonna rip with the new header and carbs… 😎WillyModeratorMarch 25, 2019 at 10:53 amPost count: 1071
One of my shocks developed a little squeak after 1400 miles or so, cranked on it more and it went away, so I’d get it tight.
