Could even rig up a temp switch to turn it on and off
How about perfect size tank to fit in the corner opposite of the battery.
Put a second mister on the oil sump too?John JonesKeymasterJuly 29, 2019 at 5:14 pmPost count: 6423
I wonder if a fuel pump could pump water?? and be enough? 😎
Still can’t get sand off my mind.. the Sand Scorcher II idea is moving up my list…. 😎AndymParticipantJuly 29, 2019 at 9:19 pmPost count: 935

Hah! I live! I did try to reply to the overheating head thread a while ago but couldn’t get on for some reason (probably because I’m an aussie…. :)….).
I don’t know what the thoughts on Bob Hoover are there but he did attribute the overheating head and valve problems to oil supply (heads starve, engine gets hot and then oil gets hot sorta cycle…). Interesting he did note one side was worse than the other.
Given you’re pulling it down all the time anyway maybe consider this?John JonesKeymasterJuly 30, 2019 at 4:53 pmPost count: 6423
That was a great read… I had to read it through a few times, and also note, click on one of the pics and you get to see many more pics and how he did all of it… I am game to try.. Makes great logic.. I worry about how much the oil pressure was affected after drilling that additonal oil galley to feed the cam..??? maybe not much.. or not enough or he would have mentioned it..
I want to print it out and see what Painters thinks about it… or maybe someone who texts or talks to them dudes could send them a link… I wonder what Ross or Eddie would say…. 😎Pat KKeymasterJuly 30, 2019 at 5:14 pmPost count: 1301
^ now I gotta do some reading to see what the buzz is about???
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterJuly 30, 2019 at 5:16 pmPost count: 3451
We usually have the big oil pumps…I would think would be good for that.
Add one one of Cole’s oil sumps for a bonus with all that oil moving around the engine.John JonesKeymasterJuly 31, 2019 at 4:56 pmPost count: 6423
I finally found a good home for them Phone Dials…. Really like em!!!! Real wheels… and something sorta different….. 😎cookiemonster131ParticipantJuly 31, 2019 at 6:23 pmPost count: 135
<p style=”text-align: left;”>What ever happened to that shop help that got the rabbit truck?</p>John JonesKeymasterAugust 1, 2019 at 6:32 amPost count: 6423
When Chris left, he paid me for it… But I always wanted them wheels back… The very first set of Phone dials I laid my eye’s on were Jack Wink’s on a black vert at the Texas Bug inn in Ennis Texas.. around 1991 ish… or 92… Always loved em… Finally have a set… Thanks Tom… 😎BBWBParticipantAugust 1, 2019 at 7:21 amPost count: 813
I like Phones Dials on busses. Have a softer look than Fuks. Fits the soft corners on a bus.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.John JonesKeymasterAugust 1, 2019 at 8:58 amPost count: 6423
I got the dually tucked away and on hold, my bus seems happy, and the kombi is waiting on a full paint job…. Is it SAND CAR time yet or what????????? 😎 😎alykatParticipantAugust 1, 2019 at 1:22 pmPost count: 447
Hey John….time to go on face book and sign up with air cooled Vw parts for sale. There have been several sand rails on there lately at VERY reasonable prices. Only thing is, the best ones (and really cheap for what they are) have been in Texas. Of course a trip to pick one up would be a great chance to visit some of the extended KCW family as well .Critter1ParticipantAugust 2, 2019 at 9:00 amPost count: 223
The dials fit the look better than those other Porsche wheels that were on there. I’m like you Jones, I’ve always loved me son Phone Dials!

I think we need to get our mister systems set up… 😎John JonesKeymasterAugust 5, 2019 at 7:58 amPost count: 6423
I’m gonna talk to Eddie and or Ross about the Bob Hoover mods… and pull my engine out and send it over for a freshen up and hopefully some head cooling mods also…. 😎 I think I have 2 1/2 years on the bottom end…. and it’s had 3 different top ends on it… Looks like my main seal is seaping oil also… Rusty and I are going to Mt Rushmore in a couple months.. I wanna have a fresh motor for that…. 😎 I dislike the idea of not having the pamper for a couple weeks… but the kombi is still running strong!!RustabusParticipantAugust 5, 2019 at 9:07 amPost count: 1893
Good idea Jones!!! This road trip has had me thinking about ordering up another long block from painters 🙂 I wanna be sure both of my Buses keep on rolling!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂John JonesKeymasterAugust 6, 2019 at 3:12 pmPost count: 6423
I may have to do this shit myself,,, But I’m gonna!!!
I wish I could get sand cars off my brain. …John JonesKeymasterAugust 8, 2019 at 11:37 amPost count: 6423
this would probably do the trick for my sand obsession… LT500 in newcastle…. 😎
I have been slacking like a prom queen this week… I need to get my motor out and start the mods!!!!
