Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Thanks Dan,
i got the rest of the seats out today, and some of the rubber floor. all thats left is the drivers seat and the divider thing behind it. something drained my battery. could be some kind of short from one of the wires they cut, a bad battery or something like that, so im going to need to do some work figuring that out.


thanks
Eric

Dan, i didn't see a sticker on the drivers side. if i wasn't jammed in so close to the trees i could take a closer look. one of my photos is of the drivers side engine and it is bare.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifestar international S1700 CXXVI

I bought one of those chargers and it crapped out right away, got an exchange and that one crapped out. Maybe it was a bad batch? But after the second failure I just got a refund and went to Sears to get a better quality charger. Just sayin', if your batteries do not appear to be getting charged I would suspect the charger as potentially being faulty.

That is the first school bus I have seen that actually has a battery hold down

Battery posts and terminals look awfully dirty and oxidized. Clean them out first because they put a high resistance on the electrical path.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Thanks Guys,
the charger is slowly plugging along, its gone done a couple of Amps on the gage so something must be going right. I will give the terminals a good cleaning. i went into the switch panel and removed a bunch of wires that were connected to warning light and master, and a light up switch that do noting. they had wires that were unplugged, unprotected and live. they could have been the reason my battery died i used my meter to not only check for live wires, but to ensure which way on the the dead switches is the on position. other unplugged wires that weren't live i left alone for now.

I'd suggest that you clean all the terminals as they are way too dirty to function properly. All you really need to go with that spagetti is a can of meat balls
