Sorry... been busy. Mechanic is here and we are trying to get it going with ether. One can so far with little success. One of the guys here at the marina referred me to this guy.

Cliff, I put a new O-ring on both ends of the bowl and tightened a smidge beyond hand-tight with the special wrench. I have no secondary, it has the little blank-out device that Davco sells, but I pulled the lines off both sides of the housing and get good fuel on each side.

Perkins in Callao were the first guys I called -- they're close. They don't work on two-strokes. I don't need to call American Diesel -- I know those guys personally and they are not Detroit guys. Also, they are mostly a parts and phone support outfit, I don't think they have a guy with a truck to send on service calls.

I'll post an update if this guy can get it going. Thanks everyone.

-Sean

Walters comment made me chuckle too. I can't tell you how many times I've just stood in our new bus shell and stared blankly coming up with virtual solutions to problems. Lol. I plan it out in my head then execute. But watching me plan in my head looks very much like I'm in la la land

Scott, that is good to know, it looks like the blank stare affliction affects the young as well. The difference is that as you  get older, the stare will be longer, and you will drift off the original topic and take longer to recover. Not unlike the wandering off the thread topic at hand - go Eagle if you want the best ride and much admired looks (in my opinion), go Prevost if you have deep pockets, and go MCI if you are practical and want to get parts more easily. They all use the same engines and transmissions, basically; the rest is the shape and style of the wrapper.

Here are the pictures of that additional screen -





And here is the air intake.  All these screens were in this air intake before the air gets to the filter.



Ive since taken them out, left one for good measure and have replaced the air filter.  Hoping this helps with my sooty smoke.  Ill let you know if theres an improvement.

Just looked at Campland on the Bay's site-they allow up to 270 days long term.

Wet torque converters is where the bell housing and starter is sealed and the trans fluid can drain through the bell housing. V730 is that way.

Have stayed many times at Campland on the Bay in Mission Bay. No problem with my bus and saw many other buses there what looked like long termers. Good Luck, TomC
