Itinerant Air-Cooled visit #5

It turned out to be a perfect day to work on the bus (sunny, but not too hot). First, we replaced the engine mounts and were able to do it without having to remove the exhaust. My exhaust didn't look like it was in the mood to be removed so I'm glad we were able to pull that off. It looks like we were able to fix the oil leak too. The bus developed a terrible leak after replacing the clutch last fall so that was the main thing I wanted to accomplish this year. It looked like the front seal we also replaced last year may have been faulty. Hopefully the new seal will last a little longer than 100 miles.

Two hours away...

I'm about two hours away from Colin's 5th visit. I have an oil leak that developed after changing the clutch last year. It's also time to replace the engine mounts and the front shifter bushing (time permitting). Possible rain in the forecast today, but the sun is peeking out and I'm about to have my third cup of coffee... This should be a good day.
