Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

I've found with water, you are better off trying to make it go someplace else-rather than stop it completely. I turned one of my windows upside down (mine came with vent windows at the top) so my pooch could hang her nose out the slider. I just drilled a small hole in each lower corner of the rubber track the window slides in.

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

I've been following your conversion very closely since I'm planning to do something very similar.

Two questions:

1) Did your secondary battery box hold the starting batteries or is it for the wheelchair lift batteries?

2) How big a hassle was it to remove the original roof AC unit. (and does the front unit work properly with the rear unit removed)?

Thanx - Roach

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

Where mine was-and since I planned on being able to walk thru, the main question would have been "how'd you get that nasty bump on your forehead?"

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

If it'll piss of Al Gore then hand me that tubing cutter Seems there's always something that's going to end civilization as we know it. I've heard so many bogus warnings that I pretty much tune them out now.

Used to be that you couldn't buy refrigerant (freon) unless you were certified. These days freon's history and the new refrigerants are ozone friendly or at least not as nasty as freon was, but you don't want to breathe the stuff. The new stuff won't end civilization as we know it, but it could blind you if splashed in your eyes or kill you outright if you breathe enough of it. That said, when the time comes I'll be reaching for that tubing cutter.

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

lol well ya, if its poison gas i aint cutting the line. never heard of anyone dieing from freon (yet). I have to deal with that on a daily basis it seems. I work scale operator at the landfill and every day i get someone that "oh i cut the lines so there is no freon" and tries to get the appliances in for free..

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

Yeah, the warning labels would have you believe that one whiff will cook your goose - I don't buy that at all. When the time comes to disconnect mine I just won't have my face *right there* when it's venting (lol) and a few open windows probably wouldn't hurt either.

Re: 1994 Ford E-350 Shuttle Bus Conversion

Freon itself isn't poisonous, however if it gets next to an open flame, it turns in to phosgene gas which is deadly. IE: don't open the line while smoking.
