I took a travel tour through Northern Montana / had to replace the compressor (which I should have just done a long time ago...) but rural Montana diesel mechanics charge a lot less than big city places

New compressor... it’s pretty.
I had to also replace the air vacuum.

And - because my air lines were actually pumping a strong air flow - I had to replace a regulator (which had a leak before - and was surprisingly easy to change...).

Then - my height control valve went nutty. I took a trip over to Missoula to get the part from Harlow’s - and replaced the control valve - which was more challenging than the regulator, but still surprisingly simple.

Thank you, YouTube

Thanks, Sandi!
I’ve decided to settle down in Montana.
I hate to sell TheBiggieBus - but it will be much happier with someone else instead of buried in the Montana winter!
