Title: Maintenance in Portland OR
Post by: Sipapu on March 04, 2013, 08:30:15 AM
I'm having trouble finding a general maintenance shop for my older 1969 dd8v71. Oil change, air bag inspection, general walk through. Anyone know of one?

Any engine work you should consider Hillsboro Diesel in Hillsboro, OR.  For general maintenance it is pretty slim for buses in Portland.  Hillsboro might do some basic stuff.  Great engine guys.

I know very little about portland OR. But I will tell you what I know, I live in Nebraska and I bought my bus on ebay,in Portland so we flew to portland to drive it home, the PO set up an appointment to get the bus serviced at Jublitz I cant remember the exact location but it was near the airport.they did a very good job, I felt that they knew what they were doing, they used Baldwin filters and shell oil. ask for roger!>>>> John.

Ditto for Hillsboro diesel.  They work on anything with a DD, not sure about the general maintenance but you could ask.

Thanks all, I'm checking these 2 sources today (above) and another. I mostly wanted and oil change and tires and a quick  'look over' before starting back to Florida. Got my first real taste of bus ownership yesterday pricing a furnace replacement :)

Forgot to mention, if your route home takes you through Eugene, OR, then Mid Lane Truck & Bus Repair has a good reputation and works on buses.
