Re: TygerCub's Project

Good catch on that wire Coolr! I never saw that, even when taking the photo!
I'll try to get back out there again today and take a closer look at the wires.

Can anyone tell me what was supposed to be on the platform that sits right behind the altenator (see 6th picture in original posting)?
I'd relink the image here, but work won't let me perform that function

Hmmm... No A/C. Though I suppose it could be installed.

Great GooglieMoogilee ! That's not an electrical system... that's an attempt by the Borg to assimilate your bus into the Collective! I think one of them got tangled up and lost in there.

Re: TygerCub's Project

wires at the back of the alternator are probably for a different type/make of alternator that this alternator doesn't need. the bracket above the alternator is for an air brake compressor, not reqiored since you have hydraulic brakes, it's just more economical to build all of the engines and mounts the same than to purpose build each one.

Re: TygerCub's Project

Well, my cousin promised to help me start the bus Monday... the wait is killing me! But, it's all good, because it means I'm saving money by not being in the shop.

So... instead, I made a wash station last weekend. FINALLY have the video up on YouTube. It's on a microwave cart I found at a local thrift store. The cart was in great shape, has wheels so I can roll it around the house (or out of the bus), and is very sturdy construction. Looks like only the flat tops are made of particle board, which I don't like, but unless I really soak it, the stuff should hold up long enough for my purposes.



Wish I had more real update information for BOB. But after he's back from the shop, things should go really fast!

Yeah, I've had the power washer for over a decade now and used it all the time when camping! Now, it's my primary washer since the X got the washer/dryer. It's so simple, I really do love it. I picked up the wringer after reading one of your posts, I think! Glad I got it!

Re: TygerCub's Project

Tommy met me at the bus today and poked about for a couple of minutes before he told me I had two problems...
1) The fuel solenoid wasn't getting any power;
2) The batteries are dead as doornails.

He's going to recharge the batteries tonight and come back tomorrow to see if that will get power to the solenoid or if there's an additional problem.

If we can't get BOB started tomorrow I may break down and call Good Sam to toe it to the truck shop.
