Shouldn't you be busy building an engine for Ricky or putting an exhaust on a thing.

Actually, there is probably too much to write about. Once I have some answers, I will post an update. Stay tuned... :D

Here is an update on Gunther.

After many hours of trial and error with very little success, I decided to ship the entire bus out to Kirk. He offered his assistance and I accepted it. After some modifications and fixes he had the bus going 60 MPH with small nuts and fully loaded! The engine is running strong and is performing as it should. You can ask Kirk the details, but in summary a mix of little things compounded to create the issue.

At this time the engine needs to be re-installed and the brake components still need to be finalized, switching back to my big nut transmission. Once that is done, a second run on the road will be in order.

I will be sure to post an update when it is available.
