Some sort of sealer was covering a big hole. I cut it out and patched. Floor is looking good. JJ got the hinge pins out! Time for some mirrors. Blends as well on the big ass old truck mirror screw holes

    Mirrors! I don’t have to stick my head out the window anymore to see where I’m going! Haha5836D97A-644F-4245-829B-BC999D468CB317E1994B-E875-43C7-A2D8-E213AD035ACF6EE01CED-FC0D-42B3-AC21-E3E71FE5351D30A1B7E9-A753-4061-821B-D3330AF823EDi made it home safe and sound yesterday. Left KCW around 545. Super pretty morning. So cold though… those photos with the cotton candy skies are my view of the la sals while I was on I-70.

     

    my bus ran well. I was nervous all drive because Franz maybe thought this motor is burning up a valve… seemed to be fine though. Franz, I couldn’t get that backfire to go away even with that exhaust puddy stuff you had me put on there… weird.

    I had to adjust my points and timing once in Wellington, which is to be expected after I put the new points in while at KCW. Thanks for all the help and fun this weekend! Hotel KCW is always a blast

    Hmmm strange. Its got to be something with the exhaust and a rich fuel mixture. Maybe try a smaller idle jet.

    Cole don’t you have a 1914 with a stock carb??  I feel like we trued that a few times but never could get it to run “Right”..  Put a set of 40’s and an a1 on that rig…. It will be like a new bus!!!!!!!  😎

    Speaking of which. Bubba… We have an A1 on the floor here for you!!!!!!  bay winder stuff…

    I believe so JJ…

    should I do that, or just run this as is and save cash to build myself a fully new motor this summer….? Just so I know the motor in and out

    A stock single carb on a 1914 seems like a recipe for the engine to be starved for air/fuel.  Sounds like the jet sizes have been increased, but you’re still limited on how much air can be delivered to each cylinder.  I don’t know a helluva lot about carbs but one possibility is you’re running so rich that detonation is being completed in the exhaust cycle.  Does your current setup require a lot of timing advance to get the engine to run decent, like over 32* total?  I suppose the one risk you have of the current setup is that it runs hot and you risk cooking it like Franz suggested.

    Been running at 30 max advance. Seems to have good power, but I don’t know any different for this motor. Seems to be happy at that advance, just backfires a bit. Spits some flames too… I look cool at least 😎 but it is a bit concerning. That definitely could be it pete

    $500 for the dual empi hpmx 40 carb kit. That engine would run like a song.

    Maybe get another el-cheapo empi single quiet pack exhaust while we’re at it.

    Want me to get some stuff in? I’m ordering empi today.

     

    You could do a compression test…but I think it’ll read good. It sounded like it was running crispy.

    Alright, I’m down. An exhaust like this one? Sounds good to me.

     

    It does run great. Only backfires when I come hard off of a higher rpm… would be cool to see what dual carbs and a solid exhaust would do. The exhaust on it now looks pretty solid… but I guess it is pretty rusty haha EC72B762-A914-4B4F-B28C-9A4598F96D91
