They shorted me an amber marker that I am still waiting to show up. I wound up ordering another set of the 7" round ambers for the front of the bus as what I had planned to do would not work. They will replace the rectangle ambers on the front access doors.

Still waiting on parts to show up. Got some of the new battery wire in and some of the other wire to rewire the marker lights. The power and ground are 00 and the other spools are 14Ga.

Re: New here. Here is my Bus. Dialup warning.

Well I actually started doing a little work today.

Installed the 7" amber LEDs on the front.


Installed the passenger side LED turn signal. I am rewiring the marker lights and not using the chassis as a ground. Had to remove the window to get the new wire pulled.

The new side turn signal is so much smaller then the chunky one I removed. This one is long and sleek. The old one stuck up almost 2". This one does not even clear the rub rails.

I will get a side by side photo of them.

Had some more parts show up today so far. Lots of split loom, my ANL fuse holders that accept 00 gauge wire, and a pair of mini ANL fuse holders with fuses.

Re: New here. Here is my Bus. Dialup warning.

Well when I was working tonight the hot side oil seal on the T04E13 turbo took a dump. I am trying to track down a seal. Just another thing to add to the list.

Re: New here. Here is my Bus. Dialup warning.

It was just above freezing today but I was out there cranking away on the bus. Mainly just removing all the old power wire. They had it anchored every few inches it seemed and I had to unbolt it at every spot. The cable jacket was as stiff as a rock so they did not use a quality cable. I had to really fight to remove the 0000 wire.

Everything takes four times as long to do when it is cold out it seem in my case. I am pretty upset how long it took to remove some wire, install the new switch, install 2 pass through terminals, and the fuse holder. All the lugs on the end of the wires were fluxed and soldered. Then the lugs were sealed to prevent anything from getting into the wire. I do not plan on doing this job again.

I am not anywhere near done with the wiring but I got the new power and ground runs to the starter. I am waiting on the 4ga lugs to show up to rewire the alternator and the main feed for the power distribution.

I only have three photos from today. I was not really in the position to take a bunch of them today.


Here you can see the battery switch, fuse holder, and one of the power pass through. The other one is just to the right out of the photo.



The back side.
