     What is the name of the manufacturer of these terminals?  I see "Fair Lawn, NJ" at the bottom but that's about all that's visible.  It seems that every terminal manufacturer (or importer) has a terminal BT-36B.  Many thanks,  Bruce H

I FORGET...i BUY them from a DEKA wholesaler in Ft Myers, FL. let mr get back to you Smiley soon Smiley

*Poor ground connections are one of the most difficult things to find - just remove the ground connections and clean them ... period.

If I may add - Just because the first 3 ground studs you found were welded to the frame - it doesn't mean the 4th one was. . . . .That one cost me a starter !

If they are from a military engine it will be diffidently 24v,2 stage Jakes are a waste of good wire unless you just want 2 stage brakes  Grin

Do they slide from each end like the originals or only from one?

If you ultimately go for one of these windows, you won't regret it. They come packaged extremely well, btw. One thing to consider is whether a screened slider window would be best in that location. You could move one of the front ones back into that location and install the new one upfront to have fresh air when parked or going down the road. This will, of course,depend on the layout of your interior.

The PVC furring strips are super easy to work with.

I am pre-drilling through the strip into the ribs then running a 2" SS SPAX screw through.

New style buffers take away some frustration but you loose the fast idle,then buy you a  Jake feeler gauge beats trying to stack 2 feeler gauges, the spacers will work ok but do seep oil.Do your home work on adjusting the buffer or it will get away from you in hurry,and do not forget to adjust the bridges they are going to off taking those from another engine    
 

Loose fast idle?

ok so im looking for new style buffers.

Hoping to set it up as 24v and in two stages.

Someone mentioned John Usle and his Siberian Husky rescue  -  he has two buses, a 4104 for the two-legged folk and a neat old White/Carpenter pusher school bus for the four-legged folk.   A few years ago he brought both his buses to our annual get-together so I got to look around them  - the husky bus has space for about a dozen large cages, and being a skoolie it can be easily hosed out and cleaned.

How about a recent (2000 or later) front-engine skoolie, either dog-nose or flat-front, with air suspension on the back and a DT466 engine (maybe the best medium-duty engine), towing a toy-hauler trailer for all the metalworking supplies and Other Stuff.   Buses like that are cheap, can be serviced anywhere, can go where low-slung road coaches fear to tread, and could definitely go coast to coast, but obviously less luxuriously than a "real" bus.

John

I think that's a fine idea, but we're going to be living in it, close quarters with dogs, AND working out of it. Neither of us want to trailer anything in a large vehicle like that.

But it is on our radar. I saw a real nice 2007 rig that looked doable...

Thanks, John.
