    That tach is pretty sweet! Trying to track a starter down this morning. You’d think with this basically brand new bus you could just take it to the dealer and they’d have one… guess not hahaha

    Well, big weekend for me and Betty!! Started off great. Also, forgot to tell y’all we replaced the cracked and dry CV’s 🙂 Stoked!! Got in a ton of climbing, camped in a BEAUTIFUL area called Indian Creek about an hour south of Moab. Had an amazing time with my good friend Clara and her dog Ueli! IMG_2246IMG_2275IMG_2280IMG_2319IMG_2316IMG_E2270IMG_E2287IMG_E2236It was a kick-ass weekend, and of course when I was 15 minutes outside of the next destination (bluff, ut), I lost most power. Felt a big boggy, like my points were off. So I went back to check and it the screw that you turn to adjust the points was fully stripped. I could have done this, it also could have been cross threaded or something. Regardless of HOW it happened, I didn’t carry an extra full on distributor or that small screw. Unfortunate. Got a tow in to camp with my classmates (here for a school trip), and Cole is going to overnight me a new distributor. Hoping I can pop that guy in and make it home safe at the end of the week! Now understanding why I need to carry more parts and tools, Slowly building up the toolbox. IMG_E2324IMG_E2330

    I swear by those Pertronic’s solid state pointless system. I used them on all my air cooled engines since they came out. Never had one fail. Last set of points I adjusted where on my old ’75 Honda Goldwing. 🙂

    if you are planning on replacing the distributer anyways what about a little sheet metal screw if you can scrounge one up

    it should bite enough to hold the points temporarily?
