    trade it for a sprinter…. 8-(

    That thought has been heavy on my mind too. A/C would be nice getting through hell AZ. Plus, I just found out, I owe the IRS big coin from 2017. 🙁

    Can’t help with the IRS problem but I’ve heard the Gilmore A/C kits work well and don’t rob any HP unlike the old style York compressors.

    I’m running a Subaru motor in my bus Mark. Got all the stock brackets, just need the motivation to get it done.

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

    Hey Mark!! Ya know, I bought a 71 with AC, maybe Subi it and run the OG AC?!?!?!? It doesn’t need to sleep in my driveway! 😃

    AC on and air cooled car seems like  bad idea…  8-(   Not to mention all the air leaks… it couldn’t keep up!!!!  😎

    I drove me Kombi yesterday… What a fucking awesome rig… I will forever be thank full Bill brought her to me…. 😎 It’s funny… The kombi is set up like we did things years ago!!!!  Big heads, Big exhaust, Big Cam, some compression… etc… MSD ign, and holley fuel pump…   I am starting to think there is something with the advantages of straight axle….   Less weight, less gears to go through…. a Lowered bus drives better, no question about it… I can go faster too…  I dunno… funny to see me going full fucking circle back around to how we did things in 10 or more years ago!!!!..  😎

    Could you do a trans drop like the BBOE but with a straight axle and be close to stock height?  Best of both worlds?

    Ya buddy! You’re back😜👌👍

    I drag my bus through a ton of shit I shouldn’t haha it’s all fixable! You should see my poor A1 muffler😂

    what about setting up the pamper with IRS? Keep it stock height or a little lower….crank a badass 2332 back in it with J tubes😬😵 then add a propex or little diesel heater?

    Sounds cool. Ice cold comfort on hot days should be enough motivation!

    There’s a thread on thesamba where a guy uses the original under dash unit and adds all the modern stuff from Gilmore – they sell parts separately as well as the kits.

    I like Josh’s idea!  IRS, 2332’s, and cheap diesel heaters all kick ass… 😛

    Well…. the radio was acting up… the blower motor for my heat and air stopped working, a knob broke in the dash, and it smells like it is leaking gas????  All my cars are always some sort of fucked up in some way…. fuck.,  it’s tough keeping one car dialed in much less 4.. 😎  Good problem to have….  If I could park all my shit inside…. that would solve most of my cosmetic problems…. 😎  😎

    Anyway… Took out ALL the stereo shit, POUNDS of shit… Cause I was never 100% happy with it, and I want simple… 😎  I just need loud clear music, a radio receiver, cause YEAH I still like listening to the radio!!! and some blue tooth.. 😎  cause who listens to CD now a days?????

    During which, I found the bad spot in my main battery cable that was for sure causing my battery drain….!!!! YEAH!!!! Been a problem since I got it!!!!

    Blew out about 10 pounds of DOG HAIR!!! Fixed the blower switch problem and am about to put the dash back together.. 😎

    Yeah… Not sure what to think about those anymore…. wonder if they will ever get done… hate to pour more money into something useless???

      😎  😎   I am absolutely NOT sold on IRS…. Brian is all about irs and “ball joints”….   I am more of a “King” and link guy that sways… 😎  😎  😎

    I keep suggesting covered parking in the “courtyard”,  but I think a better gate is higher in the list😁
