12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

Jim

The engine is now in its proper place in the engine bay. When I started her she was sitting beside the bus. Over the weekend I pulled the bus forward with the motor home and winched the engine behind her. Then jacked her up and supported it with stacks of blocking. I then let the bus roll back over it and winched it into the bus. There was some brute force involved but she's in there now and I need a day of recovery...... ;) Then ill get busy buttoning things up. May have her ready to fire off again by the end of the month.


Thanks
