Most buses have air tanks under the floor behind the front bumper.

But they are nestled up inside the frame rails.

When BB and others (like Newell) have mounted gensets behind the front bumper they mounted them below the air tanks. When you consider how low to the ground FE buses get you realize how low you can mount a genset and still have plenty of clearance.

Well,
After getting married, starting a new job, buying and restoring (down to the frame) a 2000 sq ft house, building a shop big enough to get the bus inside, and an upstairs living quarters in it, whew! Well not 100% complete on the shop, but the "Skoolie" fever is meandering back. She has been out at a buddy's place, and I just went through her last month with some new hoses and belts and batteries. Will be bringing her home to the new shop here shortly... looking forward to getting her complete.

Good to be back friends!

Schweet! Most of us can only dream about having someplace big enough to work on a bus away from the weather.
