I do hope it is a simple fix Mark have you ruled out the cam followers and push rods ?

I didn't pull the valve covers off.  Right now it seems that whatever it was is now out of the gear train and hopefully in the oil pan.  The engine starts and runs smoothly.  I'll keep going till I find out what it was, even if I have to remove the tranny and the the rear engine cover.  It may seem odd, but I get some level of peace of mind that my bus is in excellent mechanical condition and is capable of going 5000 miles, if needed, at a moments notice.  I can't ever imagine needing to do that, but IF I needed to, I want it in perfect condition.  Ok, I'll settle for 'very good to excellent' condition, 'perfect' might be a bit out of my budget.

That particlar one I have no idea but the one hanging in the maintenance office of one of my customers was MUCH heavier out of a 425 C block cat (if memory serves me correctly).

Great demo Thor. On my bus, I installed a momentary push switch to do the same thing. It is mounted on the frame rail right by the starter, handy to reach if need be.

this has come up a couple of times lately so I took a minute to video it.

Glass shops use an epoxy. I used JB on a power head once. Proper prep and suitable hold to cure time, worked like a charm.

Call Ramco, when I did they told me which black silicone to buy, I forgot what it was but they were very helpful, you can get it at any auto parts store

Mark in the photo I sent you notice you cannot the see the diamond shape on the gear the lock goes over the bolt head on the cam covers the diamond shape and is locked in place with the the 2 screws in the photo the lock is not on your engine 

Ack!  Neither my original engine or the NYC transit engine had that locking plate!  Time to call the DD dealer and see if they can find a part number and order it.
