    Was able to burn around in van before winter hit. Had the fan go through my new rad due though due to tight clearances and motor twisting a bit. 🤬 installed dual electric fans with adjustable temp control for fans. Keeping it cool now.🥶

    With the Vans disc brake conversion i found it took an extreme amount of brake pressure to get the van slowed, so installed power brakes to Van. This was an awesome upgrade. It stops like a new car now and dont need the two footer on the little pedal to get er slowed down now.

    Van seems to keep getting put on backburner especially now its driveable . We purchased an ol Winnebago Brave that have also been trying to fix up so that not helping.lol. Wife didnt like pulling long fifth wheel around so this should do the trick. Ditching the gutless 318 with 3 speed , for a junkyard 6.0ls and l485 transmission. We have started on complete reno on the inside. So hard to find time for both...
