oh I want those with gauges!!! that sure couldve help me determine what my de-priming issue was.. (fixed by replacing a copper washer). is your engine like mine where the complete fuel system is in a vacuum until it reaches the injector pump?

Filters with gauges. You always come up with some of the most unique features, even on parts. Dare I say it? Sweet.

Cadillac --- That's my (limited) understanding of the system. And those gauges came on the dual filter kit from Seaboard Marine. They have a ton of top of the line gear for Cummins engines.

Robin --- the other filter I want a vacuum gauge on is the air intake. Most big rigs run them. They have a simple "red zone-green zone" and let you know when it's diaper needs changing.

Cool. I don't remember any of this type of fancy equipment with gauges from 40 years ago. Simpler times I guess. The technology of your build is leaving me in your veritable dust. Way to go.

Hey Tango. Great minds really must think alike. Both my fuel filter, water separator and trans oil filter are right where you put your fancy set up. When you are done with your bus and both our buses are parked next to each other, yours, with all its extra options, will look like a Nomad wagon parked next to my Biscayne wagon. Jack

Playing Blacksmith today --- While trying to figure out my dash/firewall/pedals/brake master/etc. today, I determined that my brake pedal would need a little modification. I have modded it once, but hey...plans change. All the nice bends had to go. And oxy/acetylene does the trick if you don't have a forge handy. Get it nice and rosy...then pound hell out of it. At least that's what I recall from the movies and it seemed to work.


This is the first mod. Just shortened it.


With the kinks out. Not worried about the bottom couple of inches as I am going to cut it down and use a different and slightly smaller pedal.

It's making stuff like this that stretches a vintage project out so long.

ONWARD!

And here I just thought it was the "vintageness" of the builder that was the problem.

Well...there is that too. I know a lot of young women who are into vintage clothes and such...but not that many who dig vintage guys.

ha! if you play on my side of the street then you are considered "senior" by the time you are 30!!

you dont worry that you wrecked the strength of the metal by heating it and cooling it more than once?

your project is familiar to me in the fact that its like doing a Hot-rod project.. but then you are also building a camper too!!.. its all encompassing!!.. kudos to this project!! I love watching you build it!
