    Had a chance to test drive the pamper yet with the SVDA?ย  Curious if there’s any noticeable performance/cooling/fuel economy changes….

    Chopper is looking really good!

    They finally came in the mail yesterday and I installed it yesterday…. Pertronix mislabeled some boxes and sent me a regular 009 style… so they had to send me another..ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย Adjusting it and setting timing.. it sounds a little crisper.. and it revs quick…ย  I can see it sticks it at 40 degree’s quick.. so I bet it will be a little more peppy accelerating… but if you come off the throttle at all.. it goes back to 30…ย  I bet it will help in a few ways…ย  I’m excited to be done with points and condensers… I pray…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  It also has a rev limiter, auto dwell adjust, and all the previous problems seem to be solved with them..ย  ย But no, I have not even driven it around the block… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  7am tomorrow.. maiden voyage for it.. SLC Utah!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Enjoy that kool-aid JJ, hopefully you experience what I and others have. Better mpg and cooling is always nice. Put your old distributor in your tool kit to prevent Murphyโ€™s law from striking. Looking forward to seeing everyone again ๐Ÿ˜ safe travels, hollar if you need anything

    My bus ran flawlessly all weekend…, I can only assume my HVX mods are doing there job.. My oil light acts and responds as it always has…ย  It was HOT in SLC Sunday… I know I got my shit hot…. But I should be getting a ton more oil out to them heads.ย  The sump feels hot as fuck to touch… I want to assume that means it is sucking heat OUT of the oil and thats why it is sooo hot….ย  ย In the HVX mods print.. he did say, the side effect of cooling the heads more.. , by getting 8X more oil out to the heads, and pulls the heat into the oil, making your engine’s oil warmer.ย  Which I was hoping would help with oil cooling problems…ย  ย anyway..ย  It seemed like my heat was a little less intense.. and my dipstick felt much cooler than I have become accustomted to.ย  ย ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย I do like the new distributor.. I can tell it pulls harder on the hills and acceleration… It has to… it pushes your advance an extra 10 degree’s when you stomp on it…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย It seemed much harder to start to me now..ย  not sure why.. only when hot.. started fine in the morning…ย  OH.. WAYNER I found that crazy noise coming off my motor when it was cold… My lower pulley was loose…. The nut in there bottoms out a touch before it is tight, and wollered out the pulley enough to make noise when it was idling too low during warm up..ย  ย NO bueno though… I gotta fix that! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    anyway… Dougs been working on my seat…

    Dude, I was thinking it was a loose flywheel, pulley is an easier to fix ๐Ÿ˜. Makes sense with more oil to the heads is gonna pull that heat out and heat up the oil more. Sure that sump is helping with the air flow thru it. If youโ€™re half worried about it, thereโ€™s that temp dipstick berg and a few others sell thats a simple plug in piggyback into the oil light circuit. flickers your oil light at 225 indicating you should slow down and allow to cool. think theyโ€™re only $30 or so.

    turned out the woodruff key got wollered… put a new one in there, lock tight this time on woodruff and pulley, and a waver washer under the little bit too long bolt… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Perfecto…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย adjusted clutch, and fixed a couple things… ready for a road trip!!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
