at highway cruise where does your oil temp run in relation to your coolant temp? mine seems to run 8-10 degrees hotter than my coolant when im highway cruising.. maybe thats Ok for a large chassis bus...

I do think my LPOP is lower than I like.. though its in line with other 444E's so I should probably just leave it all alone since it works.. other than the small oil leak, I might fix that if I feel like tearing things apart back there..

id thought about putting a melling m208 in... they say it pushes a little more volume.. and at 148k and 8200 hours it could have slightly looser than stock journals and a worn LPOP... my HPOP always has enough and works normally..

Was able to lay down some more paint before the big storm rolled threw almost done, now that it is here i will have time to snoop threw everyone else's build thread finally. it is pretty hard to sand & paint in a track home neighborhood having to worry about all the dust & paint going into the neighboring house but it is getting their.
I used shitty paint on the window frames so i been slowly dremaling it off for a re-dew. I think I'm also going to make a storage compartment in the bottom rear were the yellow is as well.

cadillackid- i wish could crunch those numbers for you but my bus has been sitting more than driven, only driven on hwgy to bring bus home. i don't have a coolant temp gauge on it yet, i think it maybe in my next purchase tho, next three gauge purches will be the coolant temp, fuel pressure & oil temp.
A wise man once said if it aint broke don't F**k with it. Unless you are like me & toss & turn at night over these things.

The horn blow's what about the driver.? not this driver but this horn will replace the pathetic horn that pre-exists. If i see you texting, doing hair & make up, getting your helmet polished or just flat out jerkin off while driving, i will get your attention with courtesy beep, but you piss me off i am going to hit you with the big doggs. They are definetly on the way believe me. BEEP BEEP.!! MOFO.!!!

I LOVE air horns. Put a set on a 1975 BMW bike and they saved my butt more than once. If some squid started into my lane, I'd blast'em with my Fiammi's and by the time they moved out of the way and figured out they weren't about to get slammed by an 18 wheeler...I was gone!

fuel pressure you'll have to put on a gauge, oil temp and coolant temp you can read with an ELM device and bluetooth to torque app on a tablet or android phone..

im digging those horns!! I want some on my bus!.. I have an air system already so i should just be able to buy some horns and bolt em up??
