By the time I am done "fixing" all the bad/missing things on my bus I think I will have more in parts than I paid for the bus itself lol.

Not to be too dense here, but why is there a vernier throttle on a school bus? And why are the flaps labelled "parking brake"?

Pshaw! I am already WAY deeper in parts than my bus originally cost. Try starting with a rig that pre-dates the National Highway System if you really want to spend some money.

Here is an answer that I found on a different thread: (http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f13/re...ever-9217.html)

And the "parking brake" flap is to activate the parking brake,,, since it has no park gear and it has lucas gerling brakes (non-air brakes).
