    I put some more run time on the engine yesterday. Changed oil, and checked the valves. It’s ready to install. Oiled up the inner foam on the uni filters too.

    I found thR cause of the strange feeling clutch. Broken guide tube at the torsion housing. It should be welded where the hose clamp is trying to hold it in place. The curves in the clutch cable will try to straitened the tube And move this mounting point.

    Spent a while cleaning all the dirt/oil In the engine bay. I bet you didn’t know it was sand green in there. 😁

    Getting there. Checking the whole chassis over…looks like we have a front wheel cylinder leaking.

    I noticed some of heat tube insulation was missing. So I installed a new piece.

    Here is why this bus is extra special. Its original metal. Never been welded on.E58C3ACC-50F9-4319-99EC-8A11D46AA2973D62DC5C-D0AB-4DBE-B007-4B23A72F419A

    She’s a ripper! Drives great.

    I did a few paint touch ups around the engine bay and painted the gas heater exhaust filler piece.

    Engine pictures tomorrow after the vented generator brush cover is installed.

    How about scraping some of these decals? Surely they are not all original?

    For starters, I am thinking we loose the first three rows on the driver door.D2A1B2FF-D62A-4511-8024-B4C8D149F624

    Then the next two windows.BD2BE849-D1C7-4631-AAD4-2F0B3E336A80C18155B0-60E6-426D-8E01-0371722E0EFD

    And leave the third window.1C958ED5-95B3-4AE3-93FC-EC716C7F351D

    Sound good?E3CF7FD1-820A-4EE3-A7C5-E08C2D15C34E
