I’ve been lurking since you started the thread on the TomTom deluxe- ’06 or ’07?
I don’t post much, but since the TomTom days, I check out your page typically Mon-Fri to see updates on builds, including when I was traveling in Asia, Europe, and South America.
What can I say? I have a fetish with split window buses and you seem to always have a bus build going on lolzVon_hanselParticipantMay 31, 2023 at 7:42 amPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantMay 30, 2023 at 10:53 amPost count: 62
Since this is the random forum, I have a random question for the group- what Transmission Nose Cone Mount do you use?
I rebuilt my trans around 2500 miles ago and when I installed the trans I put one of those new Chinese Wolfsburg West nose cone mount and its already ripping. I now have a nice clunk.
It’s a lot of work to replace every 2k miles. Man I wish I was 20 years old again where pulling my trans and putting it back in the day before OCTO wasn’t a big deal to me.Von_hanselParticipantMay 13, 2023 at 8:31 amPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantJanuary 25, 2023 at 2:02 pmPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantJanuary 9, 2023 at 8:16 amPost count: 62
I’ll be coming from that direction too, maybe we can cruise out with you?
If you are still looking for people to drive out with, DM me on IG @Coleman_lifestyle
I can plug you in with different groups leaving So Cal area between Wednesday and Thursday. Some of the Campbodians from SD are meeting up with me at 5am in Beaumont on Thursday; if you are an early riserVon_hanselParticipantDecember 26, 2022 at 7:10 amPost count: 62
Yep, red loc-tite on the glad nut. I know it’s controversial, but I’ve never had one come loose, and a good 1/2” impact gun will break it free when you want it to come apart. I also like to use an impact to install the glad nut. 8 dowel crank/flywheel seems to have less problems with the glad but coming loose too.
This is all great info. Thanks Franz. I’m rocking the 4 dowel but good to know for future reference.
Thanks again for the feedback,

I put some miles on my bus for BBB prep after I rebuilt the steering box, put in a new clutch, and resurfaced the flywheel. I had the gland nut come loose at 253 lbs/ft (going off of the idiots book) dry.
I’m curious to hear what do you guys torque gland nuts to on 1600s?Von_hanselParticipantDecember 19, 2022 at 8:57 pmPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantDecember 16, 2022 at 1:39 pmPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantDecember 16, 2022 at 1:24 pmPost count: 62
We are leaving Wednesday, spending the night at Pioneer Town, getting our fade on at Pappy and Harriets, and then headed to BBB Thursday.
Yes I agree it’s nuts that people get in line on Monday for a show that doesn’t start until Thursday.
However, what I LOVE about BBB is that I get to see friends that I don’t get to see often. I’m looking forward to seeing the people I know from Nor Cal, AZ, UT, CO, and FL showing up and camping.
It drives me nuts when I go to a car show that is on asphalt, and that is dead by 12pm (OCTO). At BBB I get to cruise around and BS with people for hours and not feel rushed. It’s also the best organized campout that we attend.Von_hanselParticipantDecember 13, 2022 at 9:42 amPost count: 62Von_hanselParticipantDecember 1, 2022 at 10:09 amPost count: 62
Corporate wants a auxiliary heater…. 8-( I’m gonna have to give in it looks like….
Have you thought about a Diesel Heater?
These bad boys will make the inside of your bus somewhere between Hot and Africa Hot! You can run them all night off of a portable battery pack/ power bank.
