I saw a Youtube with an interview with a couple of Vavoline petroleum engineers.  One had commented that if you are doing an oil change oil that has been sitting around in the bottle a long time, you should shake it well first since the additives could separate out.  Using that logic, it would seem that if the bus is sitting for a very long time with the oil in the sump, it could also separate out.  Of course, it would seem that starting and running the engine would mix it all up again.

"ou should have no amprage between the two, the neg. terminal should be bonded to the block.>>>Dan"
Is it not bonded through the starter frame?

Nothing wrong with the starter if it engages just be sure you have the ground wire ( one of small terminals) the one close to the block from the solenoid connected to ground terminal on the end of starter not to + side

Scott- I just noticed your tag is in front of your drive, we have what I thought was the same bus however my tag is behind the drive axel. Strange. I wonder why MCI would change that.

Sorry for the topic drift.

First, a little background.

I have had a starting problem on my 4106(12V).Bus would start fine when cold but not after warming up.
So I took starter out and had it rebuilt. Rebuilder found some problems and fixed it.
So I put the starter back in and when I turn on the ignition I get nothing. Normally  there is a sound of a solenoid in the engine compartment engaging. Also no power anywhere else on the bus.
BUT, if I manually engage the starter by pressing the contacts in the starter relay the starter will engage.
Other than removing and replacing the starter I haven't changed anything.

ALSO, when I put a test light on the negative terminal on the starter and touch the engine block with the test light there is a dim light which indicates to me there is power there .

Any ideas?

Thanks Fred

... I had a heart attack last week and am taking it easy, and I need to get the rear end of my Jag XJR (my toad) ready, need to get the coolant leak on my 71 XJ6 sorted and the engine on my 70 challenger partially assembled and also sell this house! 

      Gee, dude!!  That's terrible - what a rough life you have!  You own two Jaguars -- talk about it not raining but pouring is somebody's life.  Wow, what a bad thing to happen, hope you can get over that soon.  Oh, yeah, hope you're fully recovered from the heart attack, too. (British vehicle owner and dabbler for over 50 years ... what did I do wrong?)

How the heck does one install the air filter in a Donaldson horizontal filter housing?  I tried to do it once and couldn't do it.  I could not figure out how to get the filter to stay centered while getting the cover back on. 

It is a Donaldson P142100 if that matters.  I am having a bit of trouble finding one in stock locally, but no issues ordering one.

Next year I need to do a weekend shakedown run before driving 4,000 miles to the desert and back.  Something is wrong with the toilet fill valve and it will overflow if the pump isn't turned off after use.  My water heater is also leaking somewhere.

A shakedown trip doesn't guarantee no issues, but a lot less likely.  The toilet issue may be just junk in the valve, but I wasn't about to pull the toilet in the middle of a trip.
