    I'm confused.  Is that outside roof or inside ceiling??   Nice work, which ever one it is.

Thanks Guys Smiley

Dave... Your bus looks like mine, minus one axel. Same rear cap.I have a couple of questions. What is that cap on the top holding the AC units?

And...entrance stairs, left as you open the door. I have a blue line that is capped off in that little box. I don't suppose a girl could use that (along with the little 12v air compressor and miles of air line dad had laying around (that he never got around to using) to create a way to air up the bus air bags? The front emergency fill valve under my driver seat is disconnected, all those lines go to the E-6 brake valve (I think) and the quick connect in the curbside rear access door doesn't seem to do a darn thing. It goes to the bottom of a small round canister. That canister also has a BIG tube from the Tru-Flo 700 compressor. BUT...I do NOT think it's a dryer. I have looked up every dryer DD ever made, and this doesn't qualify. It has no drain, nada.

Any thoughts?

The extra roof on top of our Bus is because it is a Saudi Coach. Its just an extra piece over the original roof that air goes between to give it cooling when it was over there in 120 degree weather.

You should look into re- hooking up the fitting in the tool bay under the driver seat area. That is for a tow truck or hauler to hook up an air line to it , to release the brakes so he can move it if not fully aired up.HTH

Slight thread drift

Scott, the first thing Fred Hobe would tell you, the cones in your fans need replaced, in the pics, they look ragged?

For everyone, Fred did a lot of the early aggressive cooling mods to his MC8 to run a wicked 8V71T military engine. Pulley changes, metal cones in the fans,

He relayed a story back some time ago to a few of us one late night at Arcadia of some work with an aeronautical engineer and scoops like none of us have seen. The experiments ended, as there would be no return on the r&d investment... busnuts would just copy the work and not pay for it...  imagine running down the highway with your fan belt disconnected and the fan door propped open... and your engine staying cooler with the fans disconnected than with them spinning!?!?!?

The little scoops we do see are, at best useless, and at worst, actually swirl air AWAY from the radiator cavity...

He built and sold, or helped build, a lot of coaches back in the day.

Google his name, there are a bunch of things online for fan maintenance/upgrades.

happy coaching!

google maps shows the address as a house in a subdivision in San Antonio.  That is odd

David he is legit he sell Lords torsilastics made in Cary NC same place (Lords) the defunct Silver Eagle Manufacturing had theirs manufactured and sold, he has no boogie axle torsiastics the last time I checked and was 2 to 4 weeks delivery on the tube for the rear.Check out Lords and Henkel they are world wide

Leave it.

Many folks misunderstand how pneumatics work. That tank frequently only has a single line into it, depending on model.

The devices that are air powered are tee'd off up the line somewhere, they don't have to be plumbed "thru" the aux tank.

Good for you in asking, smarter than I was, long ago and far away...

happy coaching!

Not sure it's of any use to anyone, I came up with this drawing for the corner roof curve on my MC-12. This is so I could mold furring strips for my ceiling install.

I am also going to use it when it comes time to build cabinets to help get the best fit. 

Here is the DXF if anyone wants it.

I'm working on an air intake right now for part 2 of my ventilation system. That's taking forever as I'm having so many problems with my welding helmet which is too dark. I just bought a variable darkness auto darkening helmet to resolve that.

My goal is to get the bus livable during the summer months. It's already livable the rest of the year. Once that's achieved, plumbing from an external supply is possible as is a gas cooktop plumbed into a gas cylinder set on the ground outside. I'm not a great fan of putting stuff underneath or on top of the bus. I might put a solar plugin so that I can plug in extra panels placed wherever (not permanently attached).

Zephod--. What kind of welder are you using?
