Looks a lot like the #4 in my 63 Westy when the 40 horse gave up back in 1993. I still have the piston with the offending valve head glued to it as a reminder.

Scary!!!

I just installed my new engine in my bay, but wanted to share a trick. I am working without a lift, and always struggled to get the engine into the engine bay with it balanced on a floor jack. So I went to harbor freight for $15 bought 4 swivel casters and welded a 3 sided square tube frame. Welded the casters on, and now have a omni-directional cart for engines. It made the install so much easier, I'm sure I could have done it with the dual carbs in place if I had tried. Also, since it's 3 sided you can simply slide a jack under and jack the engine off the dolly.
Weld one if you have the ability!

I gave my bus a new camping trailer. It's a 1971 two wheel all state trailer I found on Craigslist that I brought back to life. It's got all our camping stuff packed and ready to go. Glamcamping at it's best lol.

Doing things on my "while I'm in there" list, as part of my engine rebuild.

I Followed Telford's excellent tutorial and fixed my fuel tank sending unit. Cool
