Absolutely! I’ve driven my 55 around with no main stacks in it just idles for tuning and find the transmission. It lets you know when tipping into the mains real quick but can get into 4th gear if granny it. Is The beauty of IDAs is can tune the idle jet “holder” it’s like air corrector of the idle circ. I still have to tune the kombi more….there’s more in it, not that it needs to be faster🤐JbParticipantAugust 27, 2019 at 2:41 pmPost count: 544
Having a lazy advance down low makes you throw fuel at it with a fat jet to cover up the lean condition caused by ignition. It’s a snowball. My bus has too big an idle in it right now…I’ve just been too busy to tune.WaynerParticipantAugust 27, 2019 at 3:56 pmPost count: 106
Driving with main stack removed on DRLA’s is also how you can isolate the idle circuit from main. Lean it out until it won’t run then back up a step. Then you can tune your main circuit with wideband for WOT. Smooth transition between the circuits. Main air correctors are the fun ones to tune….wind it out 😎
On the ignition side, it’s similar to the 009, you set your total timing (but vacuum unhooked and plugged) to what you want ie 30 BTDC. Then with the vacuum hooked back up, at part throttle you will prob see 45+ degrees total advance, but full throttle/under load only up to your 30 degree setting.John JonesKeymasterAugust 28, 2019 at 7:56 amPost count: 5876
Ok… I am drinking the koolaid… distributor and the doodad on the way…. 😎 I don’t know if I am gonna get all “WIDE BAND” on it though.. 😎
Engine is in, ready to roll… Thinking maybe a run up to Telluride again this weekend… Awesome free place to camp, awesome area… Take the baja… ALPINE LOOP!!!!! 😎CorporateModeratorAugust 28, 2019 at 8:11 amPost count: 697

Aw, come on…..it’s not like you have to permanently wire it in. Use it as a tool to figure your timing and jetting, then put it away. With all the mods you’ve done why guess on your timing and jetting when you’re sooooo close to getting peak mpg and lowest temps.WaynerParticipantAugust 28, 2019 at 9:03 amPost count: 106

hell yea buddy! You will be a happy camper soon! I can send you my wideband if you don’t have access to one. Use it and bring it back when you come to the classic. Did tiger weld a O2 bung in your header? I have the tailpipe connector if not. It’s easy, I extended the cable, just need a 12v cig lighter for power. Clamp down the cable up to the front, plug in and start tuning.
or maybe we’ll cruise up there for the weekend and go to telluride with you 😎DarioParticipantAugust 28, 2019 at 9:48 amPost count: 435

Let’s get a group of campers and bajas together… Jesse what are you and family doing this weekend..? Dan and his turbo sand rail? Would be fun to do something close to home on the last long weekend of summer.CorporateModeratorAugust 31, 2019 at 2:15 pmPost count: 697
Little Baja maintenance….
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!John JonesKeymasterSeptember 3, 2019 at 12:03 pmPost count: 5876
My bus tows like a Peter built…… My bus rocks, my baja climbs rocks!!!! Camping rocks!!! Colorado rocks, and is full of rocks!!!!!WaynerParticipantSeptember 3, 2019 at 2:23 pmPost count: 106
Two very impressive vehicles for sure. That Baja always amazes me at all the things it can and will do. 💣💣John JonesKeymasterSeptember 3, 2019 at 5:34 pmPost count: 5876
Thanks wayner.. I like this pic of my rig!!!! Who woulda thought I would be towing Baja’s with a camper bus!!!! 😎 You need a baja!!!!
Another reason I am such an advocate of light weight is… I tow it with my bus…. 😎 and I think that is sooo cool…. 😎CorporateModeratorSeptember 7, 2019 at 9:48 amPost count: 697
Mama’s getting a sissy bar and serious foot pegs!!!!!!😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Yes!!! I see a lot of comfy rides in your future!John JonesKeymasterSeptember 9, 2019 at 6:46 amPost count: 5876
Well I finally pulled the trigger on a sissy bar for my chop… Now.. when I want a sissy bar… That means get out some steel and use the bender and make some shit… Not find one to buy… Built.. not bought… 😎 Gretchen is going to love this new set up!!!… I need to call Doug and get him on the king and queen seat for me… 😎 I want it to be like a saddle back there… 😎 And look at them big ol floor boards for gretchen! and non skid fucking expanded steel for sure traction…. 😎
I guess the best thing to do here is tear the whole thing apart and repaint all of it… But.. Winter is close… and I want to get to ride it some… So.. I think I will just repaint the back half for now and throw it back together… 😎
