    First motor was a crate motor. Second had like 40000km on it I believe. So shouldn’t be happening… but who knows…

     

    just St glad it happened in Vegas. Not Baja. And even not in Death Valley where we were supposed to head next. I’ve been unlucky with the breakdowns, but lucky where I break down at least haha.

    I’m gonna go slower too… at least for the first day… or until JJ calls me a pussy and I’ll have to leave him in the dust…. hahaha

     

    I forgot about those tranny mounts for the BBOE. I’ll have to put those on when I do maintenance before the trip

    333DCED0-A703-4F91-B4AE-5CBB723C49822890AE13-C353-4062-AC18-149A92979064Morning started out great! Got on the road early and the van drove so well! We felt unstoppable! Almost to Vegas and I saw some smoke, pulled over and saw some oil dripping out near the turbo. 86351A45-868A-45A7-BE84-A0ABD302E4EDFinally located a crack in the inlet hard oil line. Took me a while, but I patched it by cutting the line completely and then slid some fuel line over it. 4DA6BB5C-D41A-4229-83AC-4979781F4D56Went to All Hose in north Vegas and got a new one made with some stainless braided cable. Fit awesome and they were super nice.

    237A6CC9-45B2-413B-B065-A17E1BC3E442We were back! So psyched. We filled up on gas and everything felt aweosme. We pulled down the on-ramp back onto I-15 and I lost all power and we started spitting black smoke like I didn’t have enough air. I could hear the turbo whistling, but still no power. So I took the intake boot off and turned the motor on and couldn’t see the intake side of the turbo spinning…. so I turned it off and spun it with a wrench to try and break it loose and sprayed a small bit of wd40 in there. Started it again and it spun for about 30 sec and then it made a big thud and the intake side stopped spinning…. so weird. We got dropped at some relatives of mine and hitched a ride with them to San Diego for my brothers wedding. I’ll get a trailer and go pick it up on Sunday or Monday. C172D70A-F2F1-49F2-A3B9-9F9068D39F8E0A5A8EDD-7243-4FE6-8A69-6FBBA2357122F6CD6E95-5B89-4CFC-80E1-E9216CAB8526

    Keeps getting better and better! Leaving st George now. This big bitch started this morning with no heat! At about 34 degrees. Below freezing must be when it won’t start without some extra heat

    My Grandpa used to say us Bradburn’s had bad luck when things would go wrong(which they often do). But he would also say, if we didn’t have bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck at all! Hahaha super funny. Excited to keep breaking this rig in. Just crossed 1000 miles since I left KCW last week👍🏼

    AA080CF9-DBC1-4D18-BED0-7C72F470E556Got a ton of snow in SLC this morning! Glad I had the awning at my house so I could load the van. We made it to St. George tonight! Went through Delta and down toward Cedar City so we didn’t have to drive on I-15. We would’ve cruised the same speed either way. Going great so far! Finally heard the radiator fan on today so now I know it works, that’s good. Plan is to go toward Death Valley tomorrow and drive through Titus canyon. Super pretty. Then drive south to San Diego Friday morning for my brothers wedding. Loving this van! People look so confused when I pull up anywhere and then they get an even weirder look on their face when I start pumping diesel 😎
