    Installed Chipโ€™s engine and mounted the full-flow oil filter in my favorite spotโ€ฆbehind the torsion housing inside of the frame. I had Mfcp Parker store build some stainless/Teflon hoses for bullet-proof reliability.

    Done and driving later today.

    I wanted to eat off that motor last week when I saw it. So CLEAN! Sounded great during break-in

    Looking good Franz.ย  Nice touch on the custom oil lines – if I send you some measurements could you get them to make a set for my bypass oil filter setup?ย  I’d particularly like to get rid of the long 90 degree elbow that comes off of the filter canister side that runs over the front of the coil.

    Pete, Iโ€™m sure we could figure something out. Youโ€™d have to convert to -3 or -4 jic with pipe thread adaptors. I think the case is tapped for 1/8โ€npt on the return?

    Tim, they are both Pertronixโ€ฆthe red one is the new style that adjusts dwell for max energy ย out of the coil or some bs.

    Raining cats and dogs today, so Iโ€™m going to wait for a test drive on chipโ€™s bus.

    Washed out the last of the Moab red dirt.

    Finished oil lines and filter install. Oil filter 1515 installed a little tighter than normal to prevent the seal from blowing out.

    Sheโ€™s ready to go. I put a few miles on her this morning, seated and adjusted brakes, filled the steering box with oil, and checked the carburetor jetting with an o2 sensorโ€ฆShould be good for Phoenix. ๐Ÿ‘

    Roosterโ€™s cruise last night with Chip and Kris. Going away party of sorts, they moved away from Grand Junction last month. Road tripping to Fountain Hills, AZ today.

    Chip broke down in Moab last night. Elephant foot adjuster gave up.

    I drove out and swapped the valve adjusters for ball type. Back on the road.

    Weโ€™ve had problems with elephant feet in the past.
