 lots of jb weld...well, it was time to replace lines
 anyway so like i said on the samba this is just
 going to speed up the process of repainting the
 engine bay and replacing all the hosery.

 Re: bad news about hershey> the brass nipple that
 goes intothe carb broke out and since i was coasting
 the bus in gear gas was spraying everywhere...gas
 landed on the fuel filter causing it to catch fire
 too so then gas was spraying before the pump and
 after the pump...retap teh carb fix the wiring and
 i'll be back on the road in a week.>

 on the interstate going to the local pick and pull
 to get some parts for diana's car. bus was running
 great, next thing i know it started missing a bit.
 so i moved over to the slow lane, i started to smell
 gas so i slowly start moving over to the shoulder
 and next thing i know the bus dies...i jerk it over
 onto the shoulder (coasting in 4th) look in my
 rearview mirror and see nothing but blue
 smoke...blue smoke then turns to black so i grab the
 fire extinguisher and i run to the back bus is
 boiling smoke. i go to open the deck lid...deck lid
 is stuck so i shoot fire extinguisher stuff down the
 fresh air vent on the side of the bus run to the
 other side get in the currently burning bus and dig
 out a screwdriver pry open the decklid still can't
 get it open so i pry up the corner of the lid and
 shoot inside the corner...finally i get the lid open
 the compartment is still on fire in some spots,
 mainly wiring so i shoot the remaining stuff in
 there and get it out...now i call 911...tell them i
 am on fire...then i notice gas is spewing everywhere
 so i pinch the line to hold it and sit there for
 like 10 minutes, finally i call 911 back and tell
 them gas is spraying everywhere but i got the fire
 out. the 911 lady tells me i need to calm down...i
 told her my shit was just on fire and now gas is
 spraying everywhere unless i pinch the line which is
 hot. she put me on hold then said they're on there
 way...i told her to tell them to take there time
 cause it's out...finally the fire truck shows up and
 we get the line stopped and i get the bus home.>
