I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Hey everyone. I have a 97 lifted jeep wrangler for trade that has 14,000 invested in it. Been looking to get back into a westy since I sold my 76 reluctantly. Anyone interested pm me. I'll send pictures and all the details if interested. Thanks everyone!

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

I want to try changing the Governor for my tranny to allow higher RPMs before shifting. There used to be a thread here that showed this modification where about one fifth of the tab was removed.
So, two questions.
Does anyone have any experience with this modification they will reveal to the rest of us?
and #2 Does anyone have an extra Governor they will part with so I can experiment?
I'm eager to try this but cautious about altering the only one I have.

Why didn't you say something at the campout, I have some governors, do you want one? What state do you want (Hehehe) PM me your address, and I'll ship it to you. I don't know what they do to them but at least you will have your good one to put back if the one I send gets messed up.

Thanks Phil for your quick response but the one I need is the newer version where you can see the movable weight looking like a flag. Removing part of that weight is what I want to try. I'll hang on to the one you sent and return it at Busses on the River or I can mail it back to you, your choice but I'm hopeful that you also have the one I'm looking for. Thanks again for just being Phil.

I'll take a look at the others, but I might have sent the only one likt that out before you got this one. I grabbed a bunch of them at a pick & pull, just before the buses were crushed. I'll look and see if I have a late modle one, if so, I'll send it out.

Sorry, don't have a late mod, just 2 old ones. The cover will come off that one that you have take the cover off and play with it. Might work with the cover off. If you break it, not to worrie, I don't need it back.
