you got the 7.3 with hydraulic brakes . Pretty cool. I hope that I could get a skip if I do weigh it and itís below like 15,000 or even 20,000. From the 26,000 rule .
The only thing Iím wondering is if theyíll see I got airbreaks and require the airbreak license .
Yeah Iíve been thinking of getting a pardon if I could.
Regardless, while the only air brakes in my possession are consciously and conscientiously curtailing flatus whilst in polite company, my rig scaled considerably below it's 'blue book's' value.

Can't attest if that'll help a'tall with your air brake issue, tho...

Well it’s just weird that I see gears ... I don’t see that on my van or any other cars. Maybe because I haven’t looked hard enough.

Not that it helps advance your initial query, but I last viewed that film probably 5-6 years back, so I'm not twigging to the reference, sorry...

How Fawkes'd up is that?!

the first thing you pointed at is the draft tube.. it blows crankcase gasses and a little oil out (esp under load or if you over-filled your oil).. its normal for a little oil / smoke to come out.



the second thing is your flywheel / starter ring.. the gear you see id where the starter engages the engine to start it.. it is boled to the engine, and then a spacer, then the flex-plate, then the transmission torque converter.



the hole is a weep / inspection hole.. normal to see that..



as for gauges, I did dual digital displays on mine.. I soldered my gauge cluster and it lasted a year, then it went back to working when it wants so I dodnt even look at it most times except for the air gauge.



your transmission has a data link between the engine and trans.. there is no de-fueling that goes on during shifts, but the trans gets its throtle data , kickdown, and cruise control data from the engine computer. if that link dies, the trans operates in a semi-limp mode.. it will not lock the torque converter in any gear as it uses the TC slip factor to determine throttle for downshifts.. one the data link recovers it goes back to normal..



if a check trans light was wired it will come on if the data link dies..



if the TCM had its memory reset by someone with a scanner clearing the codes and resetting the adapts, it will drive "wierd" and shift "wierd" until it Learns your driving style over time..



in my bus, I upgraded to a newer ECM and re-flashed my new ECM with the latest firmware and it fixed pretty much all of the wierd shifting I had previously.. (I swapped an allison 1000 in place of the AT545.). your bus is a 2003 so it likely has pretty close to the latest ECM hardware already..

I got this and will see how plug n play they are.

Seems like I didn’t link it right
There definitely blue.
And bright.

Good that itís normal. Man I have to re read all your replies a few times just to soak up the info. Hahah .......
I can respond a lot more to this post but for now thank you!

Why is there threads though on what I now think is the fly wheel. Or starter ring. It look like itís missing a plug or something to me. The other hole a a check hole makes sense . But that one is not threaded

That’s pretty much what I think happened . It would go past maybe 50 then drop back down to about 25 on any type of grade for a few hours... and felt like I only had 2nd and 3rd gear.

Why would that data link die. Why would that be Intermittent?
Man I might just not worry about soldering the gauge cluster and just go digital with and old iPad or something that’s a set and gives me all the basics I would need with room for additional sensors and such I’d want to install.

Also seems like I didn’t have any lock up on the gears . As I would have to keep foot on throttle very steadily and never felt and lock up and rpms drop

Also check trans light never came on . So data link didn’t die.....
I guess.
But if all gauges were pinned down and not working would the emergency dash display even use the check trans . Or could that of happened ( data link dies) and it just didn’t show?

Man not trying to be annoying or anything with all the questions hah but you seem to have a very good idea and no one else I’ve chatted with does

Ah, so. I find high-flown & -faulting language to be unenduringly funny. I only converse thusly when I am permitted a period to ponderificate and parse personal phraseology .

Apparently, I always avoid alliteration assiduously in all ways...

Thanx for the headlight link. They were already in my wish list. They look to be good uns.

Leave us hope that when you see the light you can pronounce it goid!

Check this out . https://youtu.be/cXqlBwnqq7I
They looked awesome when there was only one installed. After putting both of them I noticed a flashing coming from them. Kinda sucks maybe a mis match in watts and volt or some odd power supply or short issue . Iím going to be contacting the eBay seller.

Did they come with load resistors? Had to install inline when I upgraded my toads' tail lights, back b4 even thinking about getting a magic bus, and it was simply Brun Hilda d's Beetle.

Hyper flashing like you described is symptomatic of LEDs installed w/o the resistors massaging the electron flow...

Just my dos centavos.

Man out of the package they looked like just plug n play . Unless there was a resistor built in which I doubt now I didn’t see an inline resister.
I guess I’ll have to take them off and add one in there.
Really don’t want to have to splice one in but only other option is to keep the brights on all the time which could piss off a lot of people.
How should I go about determining what size resistor ?

Yup. Went back to the ad, and they do state that their assemblies are PNP. The 6042 upgrades I bought for Der Beetle came from Super Bright LEDs, and told me what resistor was needed for proper functionality.

Before wiring it in, the lights stobed rapidly, kinda like when 1 bulb in the circuit's burnt up (hyperflashed).

Didn't see much in the description, other than they're ready to rock outta the box. Looks to be a good vendor, I'd try to get an answer from them. Good luck! 🤞

Hopefully these resistors from superbright leds will work.
I’m not sure about specs and what to look for when sizing resistors for this headlight but I might go with this. 20$ plus 40$ for headlight . Not to bad .....
