Re: 1979 Chevrolet Bus

The time has come to start thinking about the new subfloor. Im pondering ideas of how this should be done. I have seen lots of good ideas on other posts, but I don't think I have seen anyone talk about how to fasten the subfloor to the floor. Is it just layed in and then built upon, or is the insulation and plywood glued down or maybe screwed down to the metal floor skin? I haven't even got all the seats out yet, but Im wanting to come up with some ideas to think about, so I will be ready when the time comes.

Re: 1979 Chevrolet Bus

Im trying to find out some info about this Onan Generator. The metal tag is just about worn off and cant read the numbers very well to tell what wattage it puts out. It does not run right now either. So Im not sure about its overall shape. This generator is hooked up to power the 2 rooftop A/C units. There is a breaker box inside the bus with 2 30 amp breakers, and 2 110 plug ins all inside the bus. Im wondering if this is an aftermarket setup or a factory thing. I was told by the last owner that this bus was once an activity bus, but I kinda have doubts about that.

Also wondering about replacing the old oil bath air cleaner. I really don't know much about an oil bath, but Im guessing it slows down air flow compared to a paper filter element.
