Re: Dusty's Bus

The trip was about 750kms and I used 160L fuel . Pretty poor consumption with the camper on , but not unexpected . The truck ran well and the drive was nice.
I was going to insert an image , but that function seems to have changed .?? yep I'm a dork but I cannot see how to do that now. (Stuart ??)

Re: Dusty's Bus

While I was away in Dunedin , I scored a set of Fenton Headers for the truck , cool 50's period speed equipment . I just got 'round to making them fit, there is a definite change due to the better breathing , even though I still have the single carb manifold on. I had to tune the carb a little , and...

Re: Dusty's Bus

Yep , we are pretty heavily regulated here when modifying anything . All the work I have done on the bus repower/steering /brake changes, is inspected by an Engineer, the electric is another ticket , the self containment (waste water etc) another ticket , gas fitting is supposed to be also ..... :ro...

Re: Dusty's Bus

I just spent a week away helping on the http://targa.co.nz/ rally. It was a big deal for me 'cause I don't really 'do' people but they were short of help and I figured it was an opportunity not to be missed. I did about 1000 miles and the truck went Great :) met some interesting people too. Nice to ...

Re: Top of the South

Very interesting , thanks, Stuart. A very gentle intro to the road, it's not until about 5 or 6 minutes in that you realise there is no place to stop or turn , you are committed . I took my 9m bus over the road. I should have been committed elsewhere :) . :shock: About half way thru , was that at th...
