They told me the forgot about my order while moving facilities and then told me they would send it 2 day shipping on the 17th and the did not send it until the 25th according to the shipping label, I don't see the need to lie like that.
No need to be jealous. You'll get that bus up and running someday and when you do, read back some pages. I've left the coordinates to all the places I've found recently. I have yet to come across a trail recently that your bus couldn't travel.
What's the status of the wagon?
Its still sitting, i drove it after cleaning the carb out and breaking it down all the way, and got the same issues. I'm almost certain it hates running on 85 octane mountain gas with 10% ethanol in it...
I dunno, we'll see. I dont feel like draining the tank.
I would NEVER go to Mad Man Army Surplus and Hip Hop. I had read horror stories about the guy that runs the place, but decided to reserve judgement until I went in myself.
I stopped in and it was instantly weird. Some guy that worked there that didnt seem 100% "right" if that makes sense, introduced himself to me. Very polite, very kind, offered any help I may need. That wasnt the issue.
I was in the store for about 4 minutes and I hear the owner yelling at the aforementioned employee...
"Shut your ****ing mouth, I'm so ****ing tired of hearing your bull****, you've been running your ****ing mouth all day ever since you came in, shut the **** up already"
I set down the item I was looking at and walked out. The guy that got yelled at asked if I found what I needed, and to ask for him if I ever come back and need help.
I cant believe someone in a store would actually talk to another person like that.
On the other hand, I've heard great things about Hahns.
I'm tired of fiddling with it to no avail. it just sits in the driveway now.
I recently saw an ad on Craiglist for a 2007 Ram 1500 with a salvage title. It was only $4000. Slap the guts from the Ram into your wagon. It'll make a nice sleeper. Would be nice if money weren't an issue.
Back in Florida, I had a boat that seemed to be allergic to ethanol which was all the marinas sold. It was too much of a pain to trailer the boat for gas. I started using ValvTect ethanol treatment and the hard starts, sputtering and lack of power went away. I'm not sure if ValvTect can be used in Jeep motors, but it might be worth researching.
Not sure where you are, Dr. Marn, but this is the only place in Vegas I was able to locate that sells non-ethanol fuels:
4747 N Rancho Dr & W Lone Mountain Rd
...so most gases here ine vegas have some ethanol content, not 100% gasoline?
I always thought they post it out their station when theres ethanol on their pump, like some gas station does.
I only go to Shell BTW.
All pump gases contain ethanol as a way to lower fossil fuel usage. Some stations sell 100 octane with no ethanol content.
My old Chevy truck and motorcycle run fine with the ethanol mix. What's up with the waggy.
Something to think about here is high ethanol content can swell some of the seals in fuel injected and carbureted systems, reducing fuel flow. Also if compression ratio is too high, low octane fuel causes all kinds of issues like pinging and no power. What has the wagon been doing and what have you done to it so far?
The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
Ethanol raises the octane of gasoline. Pure ethanol has an octane rating of like 113 or 114 I can't remember for sure. It's just so corrosive. Talking to my dad he used to buy texaco super premium gas with 108 octane. I can't remember last time I did see 100.
