Let me see if I have it right the 4104's built for Greyhound had the mirror mounted low the tour operators and Trailways the mirror was mounted above the driver has nothing to do with the year model,the 4106 had the same setup.

I moved to Prescott, AZ 13 years ago.  As long as I remember, there has been a 4104 parked in a lot off Hwy 89 here that hasn't moved (the bus, you jokers).  Now the property is for sale with the bus still parked on it.  The bus looks straight, Montana plates...
Question: the outside driver's mirror is framed above the windshield, and hangs down.  I have a 1960 4104 in my shop that has the driver's mirror mounted on the corner post and below the bottom of the windshield.  What year is the homeless 4104?

I too have felt with the all white military generator wires.  It left me scratching my head and I didn't even want to touch it.

You can leave the drum screws off if you prefer. I will reinstall mine when reinstalling drums. Helps prevent drum cocking and not allowing wheels to fully seat. Could seat later, and result in loose lug nuts.

Huge online library, lots of hardware to choose from.

Been around from before it was fashionable...

Happy coaching!

The Military generators every wire is white what a treat to figure those out if the printed number is not readable,the NJT Eagles were all white wires too  Undecided

At least on my bus, all of my 120v runs are in plastic conduit and only my 12v wires are running in the open-so the black wire difference isn't there.

And then there the new LED lights that run on DC but use the AC color convention. Why?

My thoughts

Check the brake drum cracks to ensure none reach the outside edge of the drum. As stated, heat checking, as pictured, is common and not reason for rejection.

Check the drum diameter with a good drum gauge, it looks like the beginning of the s head of the cam is pretty dirty and the roller was not sitting at the starting point indicating quite a bit of drum wear considering the shoe thickness.

Clean all mating surfaces so everything sits flat to get the proper torque on the wheel nuts.

Use a mirror if you have one take a look at the back edge of the brake shoes (if you are not going to remove them completely) to check for cracks or delamination of the friction material.

That bushing tool for Friegthliner suspension pivot bushings is a almost a must for installation of the bushings in that suspension. Without a tool you would have to remove the springs and do it in a press.

I am not familiar with your bus but if it is eccentric I would suspect it is an axle alignment device. If so you would have to re-check the alignment after assembly. Never-seize is your friend.
