Haven’t got as much done in the bus as would have liked last bit but night or 2 a week is better than none! Got the steering box all rebuilt mixing and matching parts from several boxes to make a mint one 👍 installed it and got all pedals in and functioning, cables run in all the new conduits👌 Man this is gonna be a killer driver!!! Went with some badass small port small valve torque master heads from type E Motorsports in South Dakota….they flow killer numbers at ripping airspeed….really excited to see how they perform in the bus!
Specs are almost same as Johnnys barndoor motor but I told him mine was gonna wax him in the kombi hahaha!!!
W-120 cam on 1.25s 1.5” SS A1 IDAs 9:1 comp 40×35 heads….another 100mph plus roadtrip monster bus coming up!😍
Made an adapter out of a beetle splined steering shaft, machined the matching taper as bud shaft, cut a key way in and now can run this early split std 3 spoke I pulled off a bush buggy on saltspring island years ago.
Almost got the motor together too, just glued together the bottom end other night and set endplay, thinking I should be able to get built up to a longblock by the end of week? Can carry on with tin fits, started the T4 cooler mod already. Got my IDAs all dialed in proper and ready to rock as well🤘🤘John JonesKeymasterJune 3, 2019 at 8:25 amPost count: 4789

Nice. Early bus distributor even. Heat?
Ya picked that up at a swap few years back and just dropped it smashing the nos cap into a million pieces haha I also have a fancy CB performance digital programable advance jobbie…..might run that and keep a mechanical one in the roadtrip Kit?
I dunno about heater boxes on a 2332….. we been talking about buying some of those propane heaters to plumb in?John JonesKeymasterJune 5, 2019 at 3:49 pmPost count: 4789
