After the war, civilian industry (and civilians) benefited greatly from the many developments made by the military in numerous fields.

We would never have known the joys of microwave popcorn if it wasn't for leaky radar cooking stuff all around it!

Right and people like Tango and me were made during the war--but only of the good stuff and look how well we have weathered the years.

Not even that long.

Many aircraft were built with the expectation that they would last weeks. They didn't even bother painting many of them.

Hey man.
Sent you a PM of the Allison info I received.
Let me know if you didn't get it.
It is the same #12 fitting but my contact recommended a J I C 12 with o-ring so the fitting could swivel as needed.
Good luck

thats the one I used.. the one that can swivel. you tighten the adjusting nut once the fitting is turned the direction you want. its a 90 coming off of the transmission.

Hey Jack...maybe we should start The Vintage Bus Owners Club.
You know...where it's the owners that are vintage(?).

Nah, someone would want to make up rules and it would get too complicated. I guess we'll just have to stay Old Farts.
