Ha! Mine is adjustable (picture to follow shortly)...there are two additional bolt holes to turn the vents outward further. I am going to take advantage of that! Steve, check yours....you may find it is adjustable!

Mine is ADJUSTABLE! Had no idea. See the picture...there are two additional bolt holes enabling me to angle out the vents like the guy who has the 1980 did. I'm going to do it.

It would be cool if we could make them temperature activated to automatically deploy when the radiator gets HOT!!!

Yes, that would be cool....right now it's a 20 minute job.....does your '78 have the adjustable feature too?

Clarke,
This is an informative discussion about the Vents. It might be a good idea for you to do a "How To" on the Mechanical Discussion portion of the Forum with pictures. It may be helpful to someone at some point.

Will do later today. It's pretty straightforward. The one thing I don't like about the vents being out is the screen that is on the inside of the vents to prevent debris from entering sticks out when the vents are fully deployed.

On Aircraft they call them cowel flaps.. which are adjustable via actuator contolled from the cockpit. Volkswagen bugs used a sealed bellows system that expanded or contacted with the air temp.. which controlled the position of the flap... or you could just undo two bolts.. ez-er...

Took the coach back to storage this morning. It's about a 13 mile drive, mostly freeway, mostly uphill, to the storage facility. Normally the engine temp on a day like today (overcast and cool) is around 184-185. Today with the air scoops deployed the temp was around 180-181....that's quite a difference!

My '78 has moved on to a new owner....I never checked to see if the vents would deploy...I run mostly on flat ground and never overheated. I think a p/o put a larger radiator in it...It is huge!
