Hi- so I'm picking up a bus in Oregon and driving it down to the SF Bay shortly-
I wanted to get an idea of what kinds of spares I should bring, as I really don't want to get stuck out there.
I'm a pretty mechanical guy and can fix just about anything once I know how it works but my experience with large diesels and air brakes is limited.
I'm gonna buy some stuff like oil, tranny fluid, and antifreeze locally up there- but for the specialty stuff I'm going to have to fly up with it
My list currently looks like:
Fuel filter (specific to engine)
Serpentine drive belt (specific to engine)
12T bottle jack (I don't even think I have a lug wrench large enough for those nuts?)
Tire repair kit + fix-a-flat (can truck tires be repaired just like car tires? I would assume so?)
Anything obvious I'm missing?
My toolbox is pretty complete with things like bailing wire and JB-Weld so I can rig stuff if needed but I'm sure there are some specialty parts that I don't know about that would be good to have as spares?
Air fittings etc?
I just don't know- any help would be appreciated
