I measured my bus and Sandi's next to each other. Her is 2003, mine 2004.
her bus sits one inch +/- higher than mine. From center of hub to edge of wheel arch trim.
Gonna do some more lookin n measurig, but I'm now convinced that 10R's will fit with no trouble! My body to chassis mounts are different than my previous buses. I'll snap a pic, but they're spring loaded. I guess so as the rubber slowly degrades they stay tight. Nice.
Gotta get pics of my bus and Sandi's next to each other.

I'm going to talk to the diesel shop again tomorrow. See if I can get it in for some diagnostic work and find out about the general health of the engine. I want to really make sure everything's in order before we proceed with fixing anything.

I've got a question-
Is it even worth sampling my oil if I just changed it? Its only got about 10-20 miles on this oil since the change. The leak sprung up just after changing it.

Got some GREAT news after talking to the IC dealer here. They only have one part number for the front cover for my year. Fingers crossed but I think I'm in the clear as far as having to remove the rear timing cover.
A new outer cover is $950. They have one in stock, otherwise the part is on national backorder. I think I'll go ahead and get it. They put it on a ticket for me.

Do you still have the old oil that came out of that engine? Test it.

I would also test the new oil because if it has coolant in it, you will be loosing your rad hoses, heater hoses etc. It won't happen immedietly but overtime they will rot away insideand get a major overheat.

Naw, we got rid of the old oil, but I didn't see any signs of coolant in it.
Will definitely check the oil, but with only maybe 20 miles of operation I doubt it would be too helpful. I've only ran the engine maybe 20 minutes and 1/2 mile since the front cover coolant leak started.

I'll start with replacing the front cover and gaskets. Then get everything tested thoroughly. Runs great, other than the leak. Hopefully it stays that way.

You should be good but I am just passing along what I know from past experience. i had an Audi and got a new head gasket installed. I was supposed to get it retorqued after say 2000kms. Well, dumb me, let it pass and got a nice mix of oil and coolant in the block. Not good so beware.
