That's unfortunate. Too bad you didn't have some guidance before you jumped into that one. Some of us have gone through it, and might have spared you the pain.
I had a good bus available last spring that might have been a better candidate, but it's in AL now. Still available.

I could use a rear bumper if yours is decent. And corner bumperettes.

I will take pictures as I expose my project for what she really was.  A huge project haha.   I think the other thing that happened to me on this was that my buddies aren't around to help me like they did on my last bus project.   They all got girlfriends and wives.

Why would you use vacumn when you already have air pressure?

Vacumn systems are used only where there is no air press system available? A vac system is actually an air system anyway except it uses atmospheric pressure instead of an air tank.

They both push which is what you want.

The hyd part doesn't care what is pushing.

You have to study about those ads closely, some of those trucks have a bunch of hard miles on them before they were converted.

No mine is an all dry element system, what year do you have there.
I would have to look into that a bit if its different. In most oil bath type systems you just replace the oil in the lower section "normally".

Ah ... Lennix Firefox Mozilla British Speeel Chezk.  Cousins across the sea separated by a common spoken language ... I think. Smiley  How do you spell filture?
How true.   When I worked on rigs in the North Sea we had crew from Louisiana and Mississippi, and also some local crew from Liverpool in England and Aberdeen in Scotland.   The 'Mericans couldn't understand a word of what the Scousers were saying, and I couldn't understand what the Scots were saying, even though we were all theoretically speaking the same language.   Our Australian Rig Superintendant couldn't understand any of us, and used to start mumbling in Strine after a few minutes with the Louisianans.   The few Dutch on board were the only ones who spoke good English (apart from me!).

Ah yes, water pumps.   Mount them as low as possible, with somewhere for the inevitable leaks to harmlessly drip to ground without flooding a bay.   Make them easily accessible, because sooner or later you'll need to swap or repair one when a chunk of something gets caught in the diaphragm or check valve.   Strainers are well worth it to minimize FOD.


PS  -  HB, it's spelt Eff Eye Ell Tea Eee Aaargh.

There is no amount of rust that can't be repaired.  It will take an obscene amount of time (many years in my case), but it can be fixed.  The materials aren't very expensive, except for time-- time is priceless.  I totally understand your reason for scrapping it.
