The danged EPA did away with DDT because it supposedly was killing the Honey Bee's .Well guess what . The bee's are still dying and we are being overrun by bed bugs,cock roaches and mosquito's.Nothing to do with roof cleaning ,just musing's from an old f---------------olk!!! 
If DDT had not been banned, the bald eagle (this country's symbol of patriotic might and power) would probably be extinct here by now.   Rachel Carson's seminal book Silent Spring was the catalyst for banning this poison, not the EPA.

It's all about the service and drain intervals on any oil do your samples.I going from Transynd back to Dexron in my B500 I don't drive enough miles per year to justify the cost difference between the 2  like 11 bucks a gal vs 50 bucks a gal

I have seen this quilted stainless on truck doors and food trucks and I would think it could be a little too much on the lower half of a bus. I tried to picture it on the lower half of my Prevost and decided it was too much. Just my thought. A couple times I have followed a truck at night with this on the back doors and with my headlights shinning on it, it became annoying.

Can't help you on what you have now but if you go on Ebay and look at Velvac mirrors you may be able to find something that would work for a new lower mirror. The mount may need some working on but Velvac carries many different configurations and styles. Good Luck !

        I have 400K on my '03 TDI Jetta, run on Mobil 5W-40 "Turbo Diesel Truck" oil, changed at 10K intervals.  You could eat off the inside of the engine (I pulled the oil pan at 350K to change the oil pump chain while I was doing a timing belt change, figuring something that important should be changed at a third of a million miles).  Yeah, it's a little more expensive than 15W-40 but it's proven to be a fine oil.  Since it make sense to me to use a good oil in my Onan 10Kwatt generator (and for a large part in not having to carry around another different bottle of oil), I wrote Onan and asked if it was OK to switch to the 5W-40 in that generator.  They replied that the 5W-40 would be an excellent oil for that generator.

Kubota generator engines are very understressed. I have a truck driver friend that when he sold his truck, the 3 cylinder Kubota had over 26,000hrs on it and was still running fine. Good Luck, TomC

I turbocharged and air to air intercooled my 8V-71. Used 7G75 injectors for 375hp and 1125lb/ft torque (was dynoed). The bus really charges up hills now. Pulls the Grapevine 15mph faster than when non turbo'd. Only have to down shift on big hills. I say this, because I know you'll be satisfied with the S50 if you just turn it up. The S50 at 375hp will put out more like 1230lb/ft torque. If you have problems with the V730 slipping, just have a transmission shop bump up the valve pressure a bit. Mine was modified and shifts just fine under full power. DON'T change that engine. The S50 is just about the most perfect RV engine you could ever want. Good Luck, TomC
