You got that right...this project is indeed kickin' my ass.
And today I got hosed!



Fuel hosed that is. Went a LOT smoother than the oil hoses. There are plenty more hoses and tubes to be installed. Next come things like power steering, power brakes & new brake lines all the way around. Gonna pull in a little help on those.



ONWARD!

Sorry for all the skin loss you have had Tango. Those crowsfeet wrench adapters are great and you can use a torque wrench with them. With so many new fittings and such I think I would be torqueing them all being they were so hard to get to. Wouldn't be hard to miss tightening with so many fittings. Hope you are before you get to far along. Ask me why I think that?
Just redid the hydraulics lines on my tractor and feelt the same as you do, but what a good feeling of accomplishment when they don't leak.
My 2 cents..go Astros..go Tango! I like your can't be beat attitude with all things bus conversion.

John

Many thanks for the kind words John. I have been beaten down many times, but fool that I am I just keep getting back up.

And nothing against that team from LaLa Land, but yes...

Go Astros!

At a pre Halloween party last night I stumbled into the "TV" room just in time to see what I think was a homer with bases loaded in the 9th? Go Astros? Maybe go and practice some more. LA YEA!

Actually I don't follow sports but I thought it might be fun to troll things up here a bit.

Tango, you're in the home stretch now and your project, as always, is looking great. Jack

I thought I might get as rise from you Jack. Actually, I never watch sports either unless it just happens to be on at my neighborhood bar. I will never understand why people get so involved watching grown men play kids games while getting paid tens of millions of dollars. I know guys who can quote stats on a dozen teams and hundreds of players but don't have a clue who their Congressman might be.

I can quote PGN's and PID's from J1939 and J1708 streams but I got no ideas which congressman to vote for.. whichever one's paper flyer my shot-glass lands on when slamming it back to the table I reckon..
