Finished the last of the brake overhaul. Rebuilt the calipers & painted to match body colour. Meh... The only original part to the brakes is the proportioner and the header tank reservoir. Tested out my caliper rebuild job with the compressor first, good to go.

It's nice to see clear brake fluid while bleeding, not that coffee looking stuff that was in there before.

I drove to Victoria (but not in my bus) and bought a "new" motor for the bus. Thanks again, beeboy.

I spent some quality time with my used Dansk bus heat exchangers. Both sides needed a fair bit of filing to make the exhaust ports parallel with each other. After that, I measured & cleared a bit from flange tops so there was enough crush for the copper gaskets. I took the propane torch to the gaskets, annealing them for a better seal. These aftermarket heat exchangers suck!

Installed a cigarette lighter Saturday so now I can use my GPS as a KPH speedometer and I won't care if I can't see my speedo behind my 12" steering wheel anymore.

Finished installing my "new" $250 motor in my bus. Firedd it up and ripped up and down the street a few times. Sounds good and runs great too. Insurance and speed (90kmh) trials later in the week.

Whew, got Project Westafarian running today, still have to wait for beer o'clock to celebrate, (or DO I?!) Still have to tweak the carbs, but happy that this project is nearly done in time for some camping. Pardon the iPhone quality video.

Maybe an ignition ignitor? Is it only running on 3 cylinders?
