If you like pictures or paintings of Yosemite that look like you can be right there of course Ancil Adams  and for oils and pencil is Alice Best and her father who are both dead and gone but did wonderful paintings while being there.

Can you simply take a pair of Vice grips and crimp the line temporarily to shut down any fuel flow or siphon effect? Can the lines be capped? What about run the genset until you are out of fuel Grin

A siphon works by atmospheric pressure on the surface of the liquid in the higher container, plus gravity pulling the liquid down into the lower container.  So if your fuel line output is lower than the level the fuel in the tank and the fuel line is full so gravity can pull the fuel down, and the top of the fuel tank is open to atmosphere, you can get a siphon effect.  You can stop it by sealing the top of the tank so there is no atmospheric pressure pushing on the top of the fuel in the tank, by raising the level of the output of the fuel line above the level of the fuel in the tank, or by using compressed air to blow the fuel in the line back into the tank, breaking the siphon effect of gravity on the fuel inside the line.  Or you can pinch off a flexible fuel line with a set of vise grips, or stuff a golf tee into the end of the line if it's a hard line, or have a bucket handy, or quickly slip a flexible tightish fitting hose over the end of the line with it's end up higher than the fuel level in the tank.  I've either tried or done most of those at one time or other.  Some of them even worked... Shocked

I need to remove my generator to install a slide.  How do I remove the fuel lines from the generator without making making a mess of diesel fuel everywhere?  Since the lines come from the top of the tank will they quit draining once the lines are empty, or will I have a siphon effect?

I will be watching this thread. I know Valley is good in west sac but pretty pricey on everything.

RJ, thanks I have worked with Ted Campbell before and know about his working hours. Of course, with a metal building and no shade who can blame Ted for working during the cool summer nights in Williams. I was hoping someone of this board has actually had work done by BusWest. I noticed they have several facilities in California which would be nice for warranties and some intra company support.  They say they can work on Rv/Bus needs and they have a very good deal on AC work this month so I am hoping someone can give me some insight.  They also have 4 mobile units which might make it nice for work done on the bus where it sits.

Thanks again.

Grant -

I am not familiar with BusWest, but just a wee bit further up the road is Ted Campbell's place in Williams.  www.coachmaintenance.com

Be aware he doesn't come to work before 4 pm. . .

FWIW & HTH. . .

Best of luck and understand Ed.  Keep it in mind.  Seems those guys did a pretty good job with those folks with the 4106 so I think you are in good hands.
