Will was at OCTO. We all hung out that whole day. Good to see you Will!WillyModeratorJune 7, 2022 at 4:19 pmPost count: 1762
Yup! Made it to OCTO! I don’t think I took a single photo though. It was really great hanging out with Franz, Cole, and KB again and also getting to meet the Unke family in person! Although I’m not really jealous of your drive out and back. I love a road trip in a bus but that drive from now till fall SUCKS. I’m sure it was the Baker Grade that killed my last motor.John JonesModeratorJune 8, 2022 at 5:42 amPost count: 12901
yeah… it’s fuckign hot out to be driving a bus through the desert… 😎 Done it sooo many times…WillyModeratorAugust 15, 2022 at 1:52 pmPost count: 1762
Glenn took this bus to Big Wednesday last week. Its always a super secretive “if you know you know” kind of event. I didn’t have the luxury of attending, but it looked fun.
In other news, my clutch seems the chatter a lot now unless you’re really slipping it with it revved up. I’m also seeing more oil leaking from around the transmission now. It really shakes the whole bus. I’m going to have to pull the engine and check it out sometime soon. Planning on inspecting the Bowden tube, mounts, throw out bearing, clutch, plate, and flywheel. Any recommendations on a new clutch and pressure plate?John JonesModeratorAugust 15, 2022 at 8:01 pmPost count: 12901
I run a stock HD clutch set up in my pamper, tow cars and shit😍😍😍😍😍😍WillyModeratorNovember 20, 2022 at 8:34 pmPost count: 1762
I finally got all the clutch stuff ordered from CB Performance. It showed up yesterday and was promptly stolen from my porch… 🙁
I’m hoping the next set shows up in time for my days off for ThanksgivingJohn JonesModeratorNovember 21, 2022 at 5:07 amPost count: 12901

😳😳 damn that sucks! California is wild… saw a picture of you guys and kula in your bus! Where were ya headed?!WillyModeratorNovember 26, 2022 at 2:16 pmPost count: 1762
I should be! I did recently drive the new Amazon van that we make. It sorta feels like driving a huge vanagon. We should start seeing these everywhere soon. They’re really really cool.
The photo of Kula was from a night of us just cruising around town. She really doubles the amount of attention the bus gets!
I ordered the new parts and they showed up safe and sound this time. I decided to work on this project at our relatives house so that every old kook walking around Venice doesn’t come and talk to me while I’m pissed pulling the engine out. After looking at everything I suspect the bowden tube was the issue. No drop in it, just a straight line. Throw out bearing looks good and its dry inside the bell housing, so that’s good.
I’m replacing the clutch, pressure plate, clutch cable, and bowden tube. Should be back on the road for a brewery show in San Clemente next weekend!
