I actually remember chatting about the mister system going to the fan a decade ago at some VW campouts, you and Rob (RIP) we’re probably standing right there. Was thinking about that a bunch while I was trying to cross Utah and Nevada in July a couple days ago!!! 🙂 🙂MikeKParticipantJuly 27, 2019 at 10:19 amPost count: 24
I haven’t tried it personally, but I always thought that it was a great and simple idea. Apparently this is a somewhat common technique for keeping inter-cooler temps down: https://www.enginebasics.com/Advanced%20Engine%20Tuning/Intercooler%20Sprayers.html
I wouldn’t want to run it full time, but on those exceptionally hot days it might save your motor.BBWBParticipantJuly 28, 2019 at 12:42 pmPost count: 720

Look into a water/alcohol injection system. Used to run an Edelbrock system on a V-8 truck engine years ago.

I’m liking this idea!!!! So should we find a 12V mister with a single jet to run behind the shroud?? I think will work!!!!
Bus is running like a top!!!! I had to adjust some points this weekend… I think they had been tight now for a week or more… Thinking that was part of my vapor locking in SLC…FranzKeymasterJuly 29, 2019 at 8:34 amPost count: 2870
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: 5680
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: 896
it’s an interesting idea for sure, next thing you’ll be making water jackets for around the heads.. 😂😂
Build a sand car JJ!! Let’s see a JJ build again!!

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: 5680
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: 1096
^ 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: 2870
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: 5680
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: 134
<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: 5680
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… 😎
