If you're going to take a trip across the country sometime you're almost sure to find another door during the trip.

Is this the same mower you got?

640 480 - govliquidation.com


I can't tell if this one is diesel or not.

No I'm not a big fan of Toro. We use some brand new commercial Toros, but I don't buy them.
The mower I just got is a Sarlo.

I had one of those. A 36".
The belt drive tore up yards real bad. Parts were imossible to find, too.
The engine is worth more than the mower, according to the guy I sold it to from CL.

I was interested in one of those small diesel engines, like in your new to you mower, as a power source for a small diesel generator. Wasn't sure of the brand. Thanks.

They sell generators with these engines.

That would be one of my top pics anyway. Maybe I won't re-invent the wheel this time?

I have the same stuff going on here. Everyone (my family) says that I should probably remove the inside wall as well and get at it from that angle too. I really didn't want to do that but it looks like I might have to!!
Oh wait...Is that the rust on your door?
Mine is under the license plate and on the other side under the tail lights.

When BGA painted the dev bus, they took out the window , and worked some of the rust from the light holes , mine was more around the window frame.

I'm wondering if you suck out as much loose as you can, then ospho the heck out of everything in there,,and cover the outside corners with like diamond plate or such. Resealing the lights and window should stop new water from getting in.

That's more or less our plan.
We got some of the GOOD Rust Reformer coming, will use it liberally.
Probably gonna remove the interior panel behind the damage and asses it from there.
The hinges are REALLY rusty and the metal they screw into is deteriorating.
May have to REALLY rebuild the ass end on that side!

Thomas, International, and Blue Bird were at the scrap yard that I wandered Sat. They had a few with WC doors. No Am Tran buses. Is your door the same as any of those? Is it replaceable with any of those? The ones I opened and looked at all had flat gaskets. Stupid easy to replace so those couldn't be the same.

Ouch that's some nasty stuff there.

The rest of the bus is virtually rust free. only the WC door and service door have any real rust otherwise.
Without seeing it first hand, you're going to need to do some SERIOUS rebuild or bite the bullet for a new door especially without a metal brake, hammers, ... hell a metal fab shop.
