Thank you so very much. This is going to be an epic road trip. Hope I don’t load the bus down too much.FranzKeymasterJanuary 8, 2019 at 9:23 amPost count: 2983
Ha, I was thinking about your bus being loaded down. Thinking about the clutch namely. Maybe we should put a new stage 1 pressure plate on just to be sure?
Engine is almost ready to go in the bus. Later today.

The naked stroker is going to have a fresh outlook on life… 😎 hell Dan… I think you will be able to drive your bus home towing the sand rai!!!! 😎
another parkway project that really needs everything but they only want the minimum… 😎 The customer came in the other day and said the defrost is weak…. I snickered…. 😎FranzKeymasterJanuary 9, 2019 at 5:31 pmPost count: 2983
I want Dan to have a problem free trip. Driving to AZ then northern California from Colorado towing a turbo sand rail.
Rear axle service today. It had a leaking axle seal, broken motor mounts, leaking input shaft seal, and cracked axle boots.
Moving on to the front axle. I think the wheel bearings are OK. Maybe I should pull the drums to look at them? I’m going to grease the link pins and torsion arms tonight, then repair the throttle pivot (it has a wollowed out hole).
Engine ready to install, fully plumbed, cleaned the carbs, and set float heights.
Stage 1 1700lbs pressure plate, new disc, and main seal.
Double barrel draft tube is vented to the 1/2 valve cover. No breather box needed.NotchyoursParticipantJanuary 9, 2019 at 7:30 pmPost count: 126
Looks great Franz. I know when I leave the shop that my bus has been dialed in by the best. It’s going to be a long drive. Nice to start out with confidence. Fresh motor and a fresh clutch, can’t get any better. This bus seems to get worn down a bit. Must get used some.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 10, 2019 at 10:06 amPost count: 5888
