Dyno day!

Been quiet from my side as the winter here is coming in hard, but today Anders and I got to take the newly built engine to get it tested and dialled in. Very happy to end up at 110bhp and 133nm (with air filters). As we planned it pulls very well from the low revs. The limiting factor now is the exhaust and valve springs, but this should be more than enough power – at least for now Very Happy

So next up would be to get the old engine out of the bus, install the oil cooler and filter and get the new one in. Since the winter is arriving, first drive will most likely be some time in the spring. We'll see.

Hehe. It's one that Anders use on his race car when on the strip. It got stretch so one can easily take it on and off. We did most pulls without a belt, and then just popped it on to see how much it affected the power.

Does the '68 bay not require a mustache bar to mount the engine?

It does. Would’ve been easier to use a bus case, but this was what we had available at the time. We’ve modified an adapter plate (to make room for the oil pump and hose) that fits to the mustache bar. The bar is still on the bus with the stock engine. Will need to clean that up when it’s out, mount external oil filter and cooler, delete the og air filter bracket, prepare tins etc.

The bus is currently having a good look at its new power unit after finally being united with it.

Those Berg "specials" 42 DCNF's bring back some good memories of my old 1776 (in a bug). When the bug was gone, I had them rebuilt and never installed them on a 2009cc engine for my Intermeccanica. Match-ported (is that even a thing anymore?) to my Berg heads.
No mounting bosses in that case either or I would have put in into my '71 bus by now. Such a sweet engine.
Really enjoying this build. My bus has not been on the road in years.

It looks like one of those emergency adjustable length V-belts.

Haha it's been a while, and nothing has changed. I see engines on dynos like that from time to time, but I legitimately went to test drive a bus one time in ARIZONA that had no cylidner cover tin…

Not much new, but scored a 010 distributor to replace the one that I’ve been borrowing.

Dropped the engine last night. Strapped up the transmission and used a motorcycle jack to drop it - quick and painless.

Test fitted the extremely custom adapter plate we made for the bug case to work in harmony with full flow and the mustache bar. Hand in glove.

Got the oil system planned out, just need to pick up some hardware. More on that next time.

Cheers
