Please ignore the date stamp on pictures, the owner is suffering a short between the headset and can't fix it!!!  The PO used liquid nails to install the carpet in the back!!  1.5 hours of scraping to get this far.

Next with the help of Bob, Kim, and Dewy we dropped the motor to reseal and stop the leaks. I was told by the PO that the motor had about 10K on it, we did not find any thing to contradict his statement. The motor looks to be a long block by JCS as stamped on the heads. My cylinder tins were cracked so I bought new ones. Here are some pics.

Motor has been resealed, heads torqued, valves adjusted and test run. It got too late and everyone was tired and we called it quits for the night. I could not have done this without all the help from Bob, Kim, and Dewy. Without their shop, expertise and helping hands it would still prolly be sitting in the bus leaking!! Again many thanks guys!!! You are awesome!!! Breck
