Did some paint work this evening, so the front clip will be ready to be put back on once I take care of a few more details. The purple now comes all the way to the firewall, and have the inside of the fenders painted.

Pinion angle is unchanged, but the driveshaft to tranny is about 1 degree. I have the mounts at the same height as with the other engine, maybe it was always off just a little. I could lower the front of the engine just a little. Seems 1 degree should be ok?

I did check run out on the driveshaft after it was installed with a dial indicator, and it is running within about .002"

Other then a few little odds and ends we have the bus back together. Started the engine today, and did a bit of tuning. Runs nice, will give it a test drive this week.

The hood going on. Drove it out of the shop today and took a spin around the block. Really pleased with the Manuel trans, and the engine too.

One interesting thing to note is the exhaust has quite a bark to it, and much louder then the 392. Think it might wake the dead... so need to quiet it down some. Really feeling like the 392 was never quite right.

if your exhaust note is stronger on the 345 then your 392 was sick.. my 392 is a deep throaty sound and thats in a bus where the pipe is way behind me..



im guessing since that motor came apart it probably was tired all along.. a fresh 345 will beat a tired 392 all day long..

Gremlins have been having fun with the bus. New exhaust gasket/donuts failed after 100 miles, then a return hose on the power steering gave up, and other little annoying things. I made new donuts out of bronze, supported the exhaust system better, and did some other odd and ends.

Also fixed an engine stumble.Two problems, the advance on the dirtibutor was stuck, and it turns out I was using ported vacuum for the distributor, not manifold vacuum. Switching to manifold vacuum cured that.

So another trip this weekend, and see what happens. Short local drives it is running as it should now.
