    I'm looking at a bus that I think is very similar to the one you have been building. Any advice on what I should look for in an inspection?

    Christopher - I saw on one of your videos that you have the instrument cluster on a small tablet - showing the speed, temp, etc. How did you do that? My gauges are so inaccurate. Any ideas?

    May not be that, the filter housing exterior is bone dry, everything below it is soaked. Also leaking power steering flyid from the hose driver side of filter housing.

    you may be able to unscrew that lid and retighten it.. it uses I thik a 1/2" socke drive in its center.. loosen it and then retighten.. I know if the lid is getting old then that 1/2" drive hole loves to break.. and im pretty sure that paricular part is the same as a powerstroke.. the O-ring comes with a new fuel filter element usually.. I dont think the lid does.. might be a good case to just replace the filter anyway.. I wouldnt drive it too far.. diesel usually isnt real flammable but if it got on the turbo i could imagine it going up in flames..

    It looks to me like its the same as the powersmoke variety so i can just use a youtube video for that to fix?

    Got some diesel pooled on the top of the motor so its likely that oring, stupid question but should i not drive it with it leaking there?

    leaking it from the tank area or does it look like its from the engine area? the first place I always check on a 444E is the fuel filter canister thats on the top of the engine.. it has an O-ring that Loves to leak.. its a brown round can right in the middle on top, I get to mine by turning the wheels to the right and standing on the ground between the passenger front wheel and the frame and I can reach it..

    Hey chris,

    Seems like im leeking diesel. could you type me up a quick visual reference of where to look to figure out the spot? i was thinking about following the line from the tank while the bus is running but that sounds like a bad idea.

    Thanks
    Graham
