Filters

The fluid filters I've found so far.


Baldwin BF1214 1 ea
Baldwin BF7629 1 ea
Baldwin BT261 2 ea
Baldwin BT839-10 1 ea
Baldwin BW5071 1 ea
Racor 2040sm 1 ea


This is the first diesel I've owned, but on everything I buy used a full filter and fluid service is one of the first things performed.


The air filter looks new, still have to figure out the transmission filter.

update

A little work done and rust found so far.
Most of this rust appears to be from the heaters and hoses leaking... of course all hidden by the covers over the hoses.

Thinking I should have searched for silicone.

Whoever did all this did not fix any issues just covered them up.
Yes they put silicone on the inside under the radio and above the mirror to keep the leak from dripping on the driver...


The last picture is of the removed wall from beside the stairway. The silicone was on so thick it removed the rubber from the floor.

Heater hose removal for the back heaters was easier than expected.. Just cut and flipped the top hose when I removed the hose running to the back. What a mess of antifreeze.


Last picture is the air control for the stop sign, thinking to reuse it when I install an air ride seat. Will see how the seat is hooked up in the donor bus.

Hmmm, should I be putting all of this in a build thread?

At this point, I'd say it's safe to say,
