Thanks for all the advice/videos on tire pressure & maintenance! Much appreciated! Sry if I don't get all the credits right, just a little covered up right now.

On another subject - Owner of the shop where my clutch is being repaired is not able to find a replacement - So just throwing it out there or if someone can point me in the right direction.. Looking for this clutch
Lipe Corp. Model # 140 602 1778
Ser. L0058452
2" - 10 spline 2 plate
Lipe has apparently made this model obsolete. It's either that or having to send it further south in Cal to get it rebuilt.. which will take a week..
So, if somebody knows where I might be able to get my hands on one - or knows of an old Gillig graveyard here in California lol.. We've already tried several school districts in the area that used to run Gilligs w/ no luck.. might have a lead on a suitable replacement part, but won't know til late Monday..

Thanks Tango! Stu & Filo- A guy @ Big O in San Jose said that TDS in Ukiah could do the splits, I called this morning & they said they probably could, but nice to have a back up.. Your Les Schwab is in Vacaville?

Yes it is, I would think a truckstop could do them also, Big O & Americas tire here in town said no way. I'd be Leary of going to a place that says "proably could" When it comes to split rims it usually yes or no.

Has anybody here with aftermarket remote wireless tire pressure sensors? There seem to be 2 kinds - one that live on the rim inside the (tubeless) tire, and the other that either screws onto or replaces the Schrader valve. I'm wondering if those are worth it. Seems like most new cars come with some version of this capability, so maybe it's Fed mandated by now?

ive been looking into them... seems when i asked here a few months ago everyone told me to lear nhow to use a "bat" and be dome with it.. im still interested in electronic sensors .. a lot of new RV's come with them standard.. the ones I was looking at just screw onto the valve stem... my steers are bead-balamced so I cant use the inside type of sensor..
