Hell yea Will, lookin good !
What size engine are you running ? Photo ?WillyModeratorJune 21, 2021 at 10:26 amPost count: 1467
Its a 2332cc with a big ole transmission. I think it has wedge ported hot rod heads, bored out intakes, and IDFs. Its great for pulling hills around here at 70mph and passing people in the left lane going uphill, but not very friendly on the wallet when 87 octane is over $5/gallon.WillyModeratorJune 21, 2021 at 10:30 amPost count: 1467
Spent some time on the brakes after everyone left work the other day. Sanded the shoes and drum surface with some 80 grit and 45’d the outside edge of the shoes. It seems to have helped a bit and is squeaking a lot less, but still sounds like something is touching… the springs look good and so do the brake lines, but it looked like there may have been a small area where the shoes were touching the drum. Notice anything weird in these pics?

Pretty cool you get to work on your bus there!! I’m sure they don’t mind looking at it 😏ColeBModeratorJune 21, 2021 at 8:45 pmPost count: 2272
I’ve had the springs rub on the drum. Hard to see where they are rubbing. I’ve had better luck with og springs. They seem to be bent slightly different than the repop springs. Who knows 🤷🏻♂️FranzModeratorJune 22, 2021 at 11:11 amPost count: 4405
I like how neat Will is being with laying down papers to catch dust.
That is defintaly not how he operates at KCW.😂WillyModeratorJune 22, 2021 at 4:13 pmPost count: 1467
Paranoia and this damn heatwave got the best of me… Ordered a Blazecut and 1 5/8″ heater boxes…. Brakes are still squeaky AF but I think I can deal with it later
I figured I don’t get any do-overs with not carrying some fire suppression, and couldn’t stop thinking about Rustys experience recently

I dream of a clean engine bay……these dirt roads we live on make it impossibleAudrey JonesModeratorJune 30, 2021 at 2:15 pmPost count: 669gianniParticipantJuly 1, 2021 at 3:59 pmPost count: 22

I don’t know Bubba… I was gonna say that it looks like he isn’t even really driving it like he says he is… #trailerqueen 😉😉
I can attest to the fact that he is now!! Last night we camped in a weird little spot off a dirt road right before St George. On the way down to the spot, we questioned the steepness but decided it was okay.. On our way out this morning it was way softer than expected.. after the third or fourth try and letting some air out of the back tires we were able to make it out! I’m sure the engine bay doesn’t look so clean anymore 😎
