Hello Jake. Thanks for the pic posting info. I emailed you 2 pics from my cell phone.
My 87 Thomas SaftLiner is powered by a 250hp Cat 3208 Turbo with 70k on a factory reman. It is linked to a Allison MT643 transmission. Skoolie gears = 2100rpm/55mph. A re-gear to 2100/65-70 is planned.
150,000 miles on the speedo, and 11,000+ hours on the tach. Former Campbell County, WY skoolie. Zero rust.
I have to confess that I'm suffering a bit of burnout, having plodded along alone, and pretty hard for 2 years, and not really seeing that much progress. After getting the bus out of the paint shop in early February, I contracted with a local cabinetmaker to basically finish the entire interior for me. In just a week he is WAYYYY ahead of where I was, and the quality of work is outstanding. He's going to handle all framing, cabinetry, wall covering, ceiling, kitchen, etc., all I have to do is keep up with his need for conversion components.
In the past 2 days, I have ordered...
26inch Sharp LCD HDTV
1500watt UPS and OmniMount for above
Sony DVD Burner/VCR Combo
Sony Dream System Home Theatre
Short Queen Sleep Number Bed 60x75
2 Toe Kick heaters
ShurFlo 5.7gpm water pump.
...with more to follow as he needs it.
If I can figure out how, I'll post progress pics from day one. If my cabinet guy can keep up, he'll be finished in 60 days.
