Dave came by today for a Berg shifter install and a few other minor tweaks.
I can say it looks WAY better with a set of commercial caps on it now.

Of course  Worthless
So hopefully Dave can share a couple.

From Dave's thread...

The SC is now back at the Vintage Warehouse after being away for metal work, glad she is close to home and in TRUSTED hands.

Almost 3 years later, after 2 moves, and 1 firestorm, Dave drove his SC home yesterday.











There are some minor things I believe Dave is going to handle before it comes back for an engine upgrade in a month or so.

 thumbs up

Waiting for install, but I had to take a peek in the crate. 12/2016



Numbers on the dyno "to the ground" 176 HP / 167 Torque

Still, way more than I need, but as Jason says, it's "reliable HP now"

All of this work has been happening in my home garage when I find the time (not very often) so not only does it go SLOOOOOOOW, but there's not much room (kids toys now).
Not to mention, I get side tracked easily.
I probably wasted a day toying with the idea of running stock wheels/tires before deciding that wouldn't work with out a lot of cutting in the front.





So, back to the original plan of earlies.





After missing 3 "deadlines" I set for myself. I have decided it will be done when it's done, or sold when I'm done with it.

I've been working on relocating the tank, extending the filler neck, and modifying the spare tire tray, before I paint the engine bay and install the 2276cc IDA engine I built for the Portuguese bus awhile back.

At some point, I decided I didn't *really* like the repop seats and I wanted a correct 20- 36hp instead of a 1500cc.
The trans was having issues as well.

So, I sold the repop seats and bought a set of OG seats. That's when things went off the rails for a few months.

Once that was settled. I had a bad taste in my mouth and didn't particularly like the bus any longer. I wanted it gone. That's when Mike stepped in. His advice, "Make it *your* bus, something you like, not something other people will like. So.......

Out with the 1500cc and the trans.



Time for one of these....



Some hybrid Porsche/Bus spindles and Wilwood/944 brakes front and rear



The Portuguese 54 sold minus running gear, so I used the trans for this one. Easy deal, it was already assembled and will have great cruising abilities.



Wheels, tires, etc. You know the drill.



That's where it is today. In the photos, the wheels are King Crabs in front and 5.5's in the rear. I have since changed them to 5.5's in front and Deep 6's in the rear to better fill out the wheel wells.
