Unfortunately I did not drive it out. AAA (still cant believe they have hauled this thing three times for basically no money) came and pulled me out, hooked me up and took me to my work (an auto shop conveniently) to escape the city's deadline. They gave me 30 days notice to remove it back in may I think, so they have been very reasonable with me. I have an unknown amount of time that I am safe at my work to finish the motor, but I now no longer have to keep half my tools in the car with me.
My remaining items on my list for starting the bus engine is down to this:
Fill the trans
Fill engine oil
Refill cooling system (had 2 leaks to take care of)
Test cooling system
Fill power steering
Finish connecting harness (about 5-10 connectors/wires)
Oil pressure check
1 intercooler clamp
Install lower portion of rear engine mount (arriving friday?)
I'm so close to finishing this dang thing. I changed every gasket in behemoth of an engine and I cant wait to start it.
The area at my work I wanted the bus placed had too sharp of a turn to tow through. The bus is towed from the rear so he had me hop in and turn the wheel as if I was driving the back half of a long firetruck. That was pretty cool to do.20190810_202251.jpg20190810_202328.jpg53686.jpg
