Cheerio
I very well may be a lot of a sociopath. But that has nothing to do with you having never watched Billy Madison.

The single most common cause of over-the-road engines running away is engine oil. Most commonly through the intake side of the turbo seal but it can even occur from worn rings as well as a number of other fuel (oil) sources.

But since you are a diesel expert, I'm sure you already knew that...but just forgot it. However, some people are aware of this potential while others are not. Disseminating such information is therefore considered a public service.

BTW...I am installing an emergency shutdown device on my little Cummins 4BT. Just in case.
I know more about diesels then you ever will. You spout off **** in every post you make that you know nothing about. I would love to see the law against anti seizing lug nuts.

Just stay out of my threads or I will make you look like the know nothing you really are.

When we finally load up and take off the smoke coming out of most of the buses is pretty impressive.

Personally, if it was my bus I would put it all back together and take the bus out for a good workout. Like 100-200 miles with a good hill along the way to get all of the juices working.

I think once you get back you will discover most of your wetness will have disappeared.

I jumped the gun. It was a long cold day and I really was not thinking about it. Then little wanna be pops off his mouth. Since he knows it all and is such an expert he failed to mention what the real problem likely is.

Which is correctly called "wet stacking" as you eluded to. I just need to get it out and beat the snot out of it to burn the carbon off the injector tips. Which after tomorrow I can now that my parts are here.

To get this thread back on track.

Air bags are rotted out and do not hold air. So I started working on that issue.







Got them removed last week and ordered the new ones.

Also ordered some new brake lines as the old ones were really starting to look bad. I did not take a photo of the new ones before I installed them but here are the old ones.


Picked up my 7 22.5" rims from the powder coater today.



UPS showed up with some parts this morning. Rebuild kits for my air wiper motors and one new switch.



Then Fed-Ex showed up this afternoon with this. New bags and shocks all around.



Now to get to work.

Good work on this bus right here!
How much did the PC on the rims cost you? I bet that thing will ride great with new shocks. Been meaning to do mine for a bit now.
I second the wet-stacking idea, but I am curious to hear how taking her for a good trip clears things out.
I thought my last bus was having serious problems as I could see an oily-looking substance dripping from one of the exhaust couplings at the turbo--figured my turbo had some bad seals so I took it off and found there was oil upstream from it. My manifold bolts were not about to come off they were rusted so badly, so I figured I'd just take the injectors off the old 466 and have them tested. Turns out, all but 1 was leaking!
I replaced them and that cured my problems!

Unlike you, I have never claimed to be a "diesel expert" but that still doesn't change the fact that a diesel engine that is potentially sucking oil from an unknown internal source can run away. That's all I had to add. If that is incorrect, please let us all know. There are a lot of us bus and Diesel Newbies here and we try to share whatever we learn or hear or have read somewhere. If you want to add or correct information here, it is welcomed. If you are such an expert...act like one and add to the knowledge base rather than spouting off like a spoiled child.

As for the anti-seize remark...that came from (as was duly noted in my post) a professional diesel tech with nearly 20 years experience I have hired to help me with my project. I have no idea of the veracity of the remark, that is why it was so stated.

So, in addition to getting a life...learn to read.

G'night Nat.

$15 each for blasting and coating, so $105 total.

Getting rid of the split 20s as those tires are getting very expensive. The 22.5s are easy to find and I get rid of the widow makers.

I might have bad injectors even though it has almost no miles on it. Once I get this stuff buttoned up, finish the rear lights, and get the front seat installed I will take her out and see what happens.

Funny you should say that. It was the first time I used the place. Cold called them up and told them what I had and wanted. He thought for a moment and said $15 each. I said, I am on my way. These things looked pretty bad when I dropped them off.

This was a very large production shop. They shoot large batches of white every week I was told. So that brings the price down tremendously if they can throw it in with another batch. If it would have been some odd color I am sure the price would have at least tripled.

Call around, you might be surprised at what you find.

What...no "expert" response to the run away issue? I'm not goin' anywhere Bub. We need all the information we can get here. And I will take wisdom from any source...even yours. After all...you are the ultimate "Diesel Expert"...set us straight.

BTW...nice build.
