I am finally getting around to fixing the main safety and mechanical concerns I have had with my bus. I am getting the radiator recored, I broke it putting on an electric fan years ago but patched it, and I am having all of the brake cylinders replaced. The front right cylinder has been leaking more and more lately. While I am at it I am also getting a new band fit to the parking brake.
This is the first time I have ever seen the rear brakes on my bus and I can't believe how big they are. Apparently trucks are the opposite of cars in that the rear brakes on the truck do the most work. I guess that is where all the load and traction is on trucks so that makes sense.
