That is great news about the fender. The grill has never been there since we have had it. I was thinking of a peice of diamond plate or something. There has been a motorcycle shelf welded to the front. "They" may have removed the grill then. I searched for pics of your bus but I did not find it. When you get a chance put the link in, I'd really like to check it out. When I get a chance I'll upload a few pics of the inside, which is equal to the outside, I just need to put in the time to tie it all together.

Do you think it is beneficial to try and run lp or keep the gasoline.

Another thing is at some time before me; someone put deisel in the main fuel tank (drivers side) this is now a ball of jello...I have the tank out; is there any solvent to disolve this deisel and make the tank useable? Right now she runs on the reserve just behind the front door.
It seems at times I bought someone elses headache, but I feel I'm on the downhill side.I am not familiar with deisel; .... If cold can gel deisel can warmth liquify? I ask this because this has endured several Las Vegas summers and never liquified...Is it deisel or something else?
Timbuk as always I appreciate the shared knowledge.
Thakns again

The harmonic damper is VERY important for engine life. No shortcuts allowed on that one. Make SURE you have the correct one for your engine. And they deteriorate with time. You can have it rebuilt by... (Edit Damper Doctor in Redding, CA http://www.damperdoctor.com/

Just ask Mopar. Ever notice how you really don't see any Dodge Red Ram hemi's around? The 241, 270, 315, and 325 all lacked harmonic dampeners. That resulted in some pretty short crankshaft lifespans. I happen to know a gentleman that is rebuilding a 241 for his Dodge hotrod truck project. He has $15,000 (!) into this engine because parts are impossible to find. Retrofitting a harmonic balancer was of the utmost importance for him. The sad part is I still fear that little hemi will struggle to break 225 horsepower...but hey...it's period correct!
