Re: RazorCityDen's 1994 Cornbinder

Yankee; it's sucking air from somewhere and letting the fuel siphon back to the tank, look real close at the fuel lines from the lift pump to the injector pump, It's not unherd of for someone to have left a bracket off of a line or otherwise damaged a line and a hairline crack has developed right at one of the fittings.
Experience sys that usually you will find a cracked line at the fitting on the filter/primer assembly, then look for fittings that have had the thread sealant disturbed and then finally replace the flexable hoses on the supply lines.

One idea might be to take the end pieces with the bevels completely off, and then use those pieces plus shorten the rub rails in order to have factory ends in front of the opening. If you don't have enough rail ends to blend in all your cuts, maybe you could find a skoolie graveyard with some salvageable rails.

Re: RazorCityDen's 1994 Cornbinder

I wouldn't use OSB for flooring unless you get the kind designed for that purpose. it is thicker and is tongue and groove. I started to use the cheap stuff and three weeks later it was swelling and warping at the joints. I have a lot of moisture in the air, ( pacific northwest) and am told that is the reason it moved around on me. Home depo said to use the stuff designed for that purpose and haven't had a repeat of the issue. glad it happened before i built anything on top.

The 3/4" OSB decking is all I would consider for the floor as well, it's tongue and grove, treated for moisture resistance and designed for a sub-floor application, the other OSB products are designed for wall sheathing or roof decking.

If I were running in new plywood, I would use green treated, the factory plywood in my bus was of a treated variety and it's still looks great though and though, but the mountain west in dry, there's no salt used and I think my bus lived a charmed life.

Take care,
Den

I considered that too and may do it. I'm focused on the interior right now, I'm trying to get it done before spring and when it warms up I'm going to start in on the exterior. I should at least get some primer and paint those raw ends though.

Take care,
Den
