It has taken me ages to try and find a place where I can share my mechanical, building and general bus conversion experiences.
Hopefully I have at long last found that place here in Skoolie.net. Even though we are at opposite sides of our planet, buses are still buses..... Aren't they?
After nearly 2 years on our conversion project, we can pretty much say it is now complete, although in reality that will never be the case.
There is always something that needs attending to around the 'house' mobile or otherwise.
Here's our only problem at the moment, it is our noisy brakes, in particular the rear ones.
Although it is reassuring to hear and let other road users know I'm actually in the process of applying the brakes
I'm not so sure
that the noise should continue once I have removed my foot from the brake pedal
But it does go away after a few seconds.
My concern is how do I remove the drums in order to check for wear and tear. The inspection ports only show me that the linings have still
got considerable life left in them eg; a good half an inch on the lining thickness, and there is no sign of any 'wetness' to be seen either.
If anyone has any tips or tricks to share in this mechanical area of home maintenance, I would very much appreciate your help and advice.
