Good info. My charcoal cannister is behind the battery, just hasn't been hooked up since 1992 I guess. Shocked

Got the gear box out of the bus last night and taking it down to German Transaxle in Bend for a rebuild and Peloquin torque biasing differential installation. 252K mile on this box so far, has been leaking gear oil from the nose cone at the shift rod.

You'll love the LSD, what a difference in rain, snow and muddy slop.

The motor and trans drive nice and pull hard. I haven't noticed a difference driving with the Peloquin, as I have just been driving on the streets. I had thought about taking it down to Syncrofest at the Hollister SVRA to see what the torque biasing differential can do, but the motor is pretty green and not fully broken in yet. If I get into trouble with it, its better to be an easy tow ride from home. Not interested in trailering it all the way down and back just to tool around on the dirt with it.

Maybe next year, hopefully with a spiffy repaint by then.
