Lol... He was referencing the overly dramatic way you keep referencing the thread, how it is locked, etc..., like it is some grand story to reminisce about. It's a school bus. You wanted info on it. There was some confusion. Yes, much angst. At least, that's what I would guess he was getting at.

Anyway, the bus in the story looks nice!
I can't really be concerned with the petty requirement to levy some further judgment upon me; predicated on the false foot of responding to a thread. If you have something to contribute relevant to the thread, as others have done that's all good. But the furtherance of the same garbage you disdainfully accuse me of doing speaks more about you. I surely don't need you to explain me. You don't like me, you don't like what I say or how I say it. Cool. Your prerogative: Your presence on a thread I created Isn't required. Some of you folks feel that this board is yours: That you have some expressed entitlement to proselytize and drone on like you are the guardians of some presumed integrity inherent:

I view it entirely differently. I view these meddlesome petty interjections you feel compelled to make as bothersome annoyances many aren't willing to suffer. You do not possess a benevolent intelligence that mandates a correction of my posts, or the explanation of others. All are equipped to do that if inclined. That you presume to do it, and feel you have an inherent legitimacy in doing so is ridiculous.

This thread was moving along just fine. On topic. People conversing with one another. Actual Dialogue. Then you bounce it and it all changes. Is that your game?

Now follow up with something equally ignorant. You're so important. So enlightened. hurry now. We really can't wait for the next brilliant installment.........Moki

One I'm not pissed off! Two I just find the incessant posts by a core group of members of this board addressing the manner in which I express myself to be extremely tedious. And of little purpose. "just find your posts a bit odd and dramatic.

This the second time now you have expressed this sentiment in this thread alone. Let's just accept. I am odd. Let's just accept that I express myself as I do. You see it as dramatic, some see it as rude, and some have not portrayed it in any particular light. I see it as pretty much a matter of style. But what is clear is these "critiques" come from a coterie of three people. What's up with that? It's like so high school, like some kind of a click of kids who resent the new boy in school......... Let's get personal style and what you think about that style off the front line of my posts and try to be productive and pleasant. I'm not the topic of my posts........in this instance it is the saving of a Crown and the coming together of a community of Crown owners and aficionados to accomplish it. That's it. Am I still affected by the thread that brought me back? Of course. Do I think the guy who posted it is an imbecile? Would I have liked it to have been otherwise? Absolutely. I just tell it the way I see it: And there comes a time when being PC simply doesn't get it done.

Re: FROM TRANQUILITY TO PLEASANTON: A CROWN STORY.

Moki, I am deleting my posts. I feel you are derailing your thread far more than any comments from me, but that's obviously your prerogative. You quoted my comments, so it is completely your call as to whether or not you want to leave your thread muddied. I am giving you the chance to put it back on track. If you delete your comments, I will delete this post as well. This is my last post in this thread.

Re: FROM TRANQUILITY TO PLEASANTON: A CROWN STORY.

Entirely your prerogative JakeC.......It's all a very minor movement in my estimation. Threads go as they go: You've as much right as I to express yourself. I've as much right to disagree. We are presumably all grown up here and we cannot be expected to agree on all things: We all have a passion for our Buses. And there is far more that binds us than separates us.

This is an imperfect forum stuff can go south, words can be misinterpreted, misspoken, take on character or leave character out: They don't call them threads for nothing. They are basic tenuous components that are designed to form a tapestry. So I have no ill will whatsoever. That's a fact. You can stay you can go as you please. Aloha..........Moki ,

And Bansi? I'm not much into the conventional notion of Camperization: I much prefer the cottage approach. A rolling entertainment center Living room: With cooking and showering done outside the Crown as to minimize odors, and moisture: In the past I've always wanted plenty of power, in terms of electricy: So after the Seats go the next step is dedicated battery bank and a 6000 watt minimum inverter with a peak at about 8000 watts. Once I have power all my mods can be done on the fly. So I don't need to be locked into location. I also install a battery conditioner/charger and as well a portable Honda EU1000 strictly for emergency use.

And I also tap my air tank and run an air hose and fitting and it gets secreted behind the front bumper for air tools. I don't have the luxury having the Coach's in front of me: I so while on Vacation I accomplish what I can in the first week in terms of mods, and then head off into the wild, and enjoy the ride. But soon I will have much free time to do all the fun things I want: It's been a dream for a very long time to just travel and go in my own little incubus..............Moki
Sounds like you have a good plan Moki. And no, it's not turbocharged but we're cool with that. Thankfully it hardly smokes at all. I'm sure it's possible to add a turbo but we're trying not to do any modifications like that. This old gal runs like a dream so we'll stick with it! Plus.. There's no way we can get a speeding ticket at the moment

Good tip on tapping the air tank!

Re: FROM TRANQUILITY TO PLEASANTON: A CROWN STORY.

Inkblot

Well you can't always turbo charge a 671........it's likely you might be able to. But you would need to know that the correct pistons are there, and whether there are oil squirters to the bottom of the pistons: Even with out those you could turbo, but you would also have to run a pyrometer and keep an eye on temps.

Also another thing you could do is add larger injectors and have the timing advanced a bit..........thats good for some additional HP.........

But if your happy how it sits that's the most important thing. I just have the need for speed. On the other hand your engine, as it sits will likely last longer than you. Just be sure you change your filters and run straight weight Delo 100 in there, no multigrades, and make sure you keep your eye on the ph of your coolant. As the wrong PH can cause cavitation in your cylinder liners...........most of all enjoy the ride......Moki
