Re: I FINALLY GOT MY FIRST BUS! HELLO FRIENDS!

hey guys! the bus is comming along well, this weekend i got the sink mounted in there next to the stove and got it pushing water from a barrel, to the sink, to another barrel... works good (pictures to come, my phone is messed up and i didnt have a camera) ... i finally got to drive it again now that i have a plate, it seems to govern out at 65 mph... headed down a hill on a nice road i noticed that at 65 i had no more push from the throttle, im sure it was a computer controlled governer not a problem but that sux! im not looking to fly in this thing but if im headed down hill and up another id like to get her goin like 75 or so to get some momentum...maybe set the governor @ 80?

what do i do? anyone deal with this before? its a 1999, TC-1000 blue bird with a 5.9 cummins...

thanks!

Re: I FINALLY GOT MY FIRST BUS! HELLO FRIENDS!

i havent worked on one of those...but a short bus kept under 65 mph with the 5.9... should get great fuel mileage... like at least 12 or better on freeway.
