    Like I mentioned before….your heat works awesome cause your heads are boiling!! 😂  And with that 6.9cr  you could skip the 85 octane and just drop down to paint thinner. 😁

    Where do you have the sender for the oil temp mounted?  Or do you not have a gauge?

    Glad to see you made it back in one piece.  I had a great time giving you shit about your 1980’s tech engine. Someday you can take a spin in my 2332cc roadtrip bus.

    Cheaper gas maybe, but I can get up and over your big hill loooong before the weather turns cold, so no heat needed.  I do have heated seats though, just encase.  😉

     

    You are able to stop and sleep to let your heads cool down half way up the hill….so you got me there. 😆

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    I sorta wish surgery was later in the year…  I’m enjoying cruising around in my bus….  I could do this for a very long while!!!!   I’ve longed for years to have the freedom to be able to just wander and not be on a schedule or timeline…  no where I have to be… no one depending on me…😀.      I’ve checked off all them sooo so important boxes that all need checked…   Thanks to all who helped me in my quest!  Who helped me when I needed a hand or just a shoulder to lean on….😀😀😀😀😀 or an ear to hear.

    my bus rocks!!!  But I have had my deck lid open no less than like 10 times!!!  I overheated it and vapor locked it like 3 times…  finally found  a VERY clogged fuel screen on the inlet to my right side carb…….😀😀😀😀😀😀😀  after I tried a few other things…😀    As long as you catch it before you Break it… it can be fixed….  but if you keep on driving it, or pushing it.. you’ll break it..

    did valves at Sarah’s..  they were not loose… so my heads aren’t coming off…  but they were a touch tight..  glad I noticed the cracks around my steering box!!!  Fixed e brake, the pass swivel seat my wife has managed to break like 5 times now…😏  then backed my pit bike rack into a tree and had to fix that!!😀😀😀😀

    I’m proud to say.., the Jones family has cruised California in Many different busses!    And we Drove them all. 😁😁😁😁😁. Back when I was trying to build a business it was very important to me to show up to as many shows as I could.  And I usually brought my family … so we would combine business trip and vacation..  it was the only way corporate could get me to leave the shop!!  Back then we didn’t camp…  And the trips were usually just a weekend.. I had to get back to KCW!!!  Back then.. I think it was more important to be at the big shows and the host hotels…  the bling, the magazines and all that Jazz was all the rage😁😁😁😁😁😁.  You had to look “hard” and always wear black and a flat billed hat😁😁😁😁

    My main project coming up is a major fucking surgery.  June 29th.  It’s an 8 hour surgery.  Wholly shit🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄. Been sorta waiting around for this all year…  I just want to get it over with.

    my bus needs a refresh now..  She’s using and leaking too much oil again.  About a quart every day of driving…   I think I will tear my engine down and inspect. It too.  I love my setup…  but it does take a lot of maintenance!  That’s the sacrifice I have to pay to be able to overload my bus and climb hillside in 4th gear😁😁😁😁😁.   Still running like a champ..  but I know it’s time🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

    does anyone do screw in valve guides?  Just wondering😁👍🏻
