Yes, it is a T444e engine, medium size international, Thomas Chassis. We are now in the LA area so I think we might take it in to a bus mechanic at Bus West over in Fontana.

It seems like it is dripping mostly from the front, but it will definitely pool up after we drive it for a while. Stops after an hour or two for the most part.

At a truck stop outside San Jose we noticed oil dripping from the back as well....thought that was weird. Maybe a leaky line...?

I'm just starting to get acquainted with the underbelly so I'm not even sure what all the parts are under there, a bit overwhelming but I am excited to learn about this beast. Starting to love the creakiness haha

O rings

Hey guys, thanks for all your advice and recommendations.

Turns out it was the O rings that were leaking, was about a 100 dollar fix, not so bad...

I'm really happy to hear that. You got me motivated to track down all my leaks one of these days.

Out of curiosity, what was leaking? What o-rings in particular needed replacing? It'll be good info to add to the archive.
