1956 Bus Engine Flame Fun

So this happened…we really needed this 1956 VW Bus to move on its own so we can utilize that side of the shop. Last weekend we threw a transmission into it (link: http://twolarrysracing.com/blog/?p=2455), and this weekend we threw a 1500S engine we had on a stand into it. The engine hasn’t run in about six years (came to us as just an engine), and the Bus hasn’t move on it’s own in about fifteen years. Let’s hope the transmission is actually good hahaha. No muffler on it gave a pleasant side-effect of flames and popping that we could startle the kids with. And that is always fun.
