6 years we’ve had this bus in the shop. Not because it takes us that long…
About to be finished. We’re assembling the engine right now!
2332cc with dual 48 carbs.
Peet made some killer bolt-on mounts to re-locate the gas tank for carb clearance.
I cut, turned, and welded the filler neck for easier access. The cut is on a factory weld…so it could be converted back to stock if someone wished.

Johnny should road trip down to Utah.. it’s probably only 16 hours or so… Then we can get some pictures with these two!
We are on week 46 in the logs… a few LESS than the camping box.. I think this means I can safely say.. No matter the condition of your project… worst case… I can usually have it done in a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yup Thats pretty cool. 😎

Barndoor heater boxes. The problem is that round cradle/frame horn support on the chassis is exactly in the middle of the heater box outlet. I use a 2 3/8″ steel doughnut from chassisshop.com to make a tight “s” bend around it.
