Very Nice, love the wood grain of the table.

Are you and Joe looking to be done by bugapalooza this year?

Interior looks so nice I didn't realize it's a bay Smile
That bus isn't a champagne edition is it?

Nope...not a champagne edition just a plain ole '74 bus.
Had the full width rear seat and the 3/4 middle seat.
I don't have any good pics of the interior before i started but it looked sorta like this.......

I put my spare engine in the bus so that I might have her back on the road in time to drive to Jake's tech weekend and then to Bug-a-paluza. Mike and I put the engine and tranny in. Little Jon hooked up the CVs and cleaned the underside of the engine. I put on new fuel lines and Clyde figured out the loose wires. It fired right up and shot acorns out the open heater boxes at Clyde. Very Happy Jon and I put the muffler on tonight and I give her a road test tomorrow.

OK, so tonight I cranked up my new old engine. She smoked for a bit then cleared up. She runs good, but idles a little fast. The alternator light is on as is the EGR light. There was a small gas leak that I fixed. It sounds like there may be an exhuast leak at the head on the driver's side, but not at the muffler. There is also an oil leak.

At least I have plenty to do. Rolling Eyes

Put a peice of duck tape on the other side of the alt light. You'll never know it's on and you can't see the duck tape through the light gel Laughing

I put a pressure regulator with a gauge on my bus. It seems to have helped smooth out my idle. I'm going to go through my carbs at Volkstock.

OK, let's get this thread going again.

Joe, Johnny, Greg, Bob, Jimbear, James, Darrell, John....let us know what is going on with your bus. I left Mike off the list because he has his own thread and IS keeping it updated.

If you have a bus and I left you off the list, please forgive me and post about your bus.

My bus needs the alternator situation sorted out and I am working on it presently. It also has an oil leak that only seems to occur once I turn the engine off. Drains for a minutes or two then it stops. I also have a rattling sound when the engine is running. It hasn't been identified yet but, the most likely explanation that has been suggested is that the collar the throw-out bearing rides on has come loose and is spinning and moving. Yee-haw, I get to pull the engine again.
