Clifford,
I'll have to go up to the staorage yard and check for the 'keeper' you mention - what does it look like?

I have a DD 8v92 TA. Three weeks ago I lost the left hand pipe that feeds from the exhaust manifold up to the turbo, and lost half my boost. It had rusted out around the upper flange. Fortunately another pipe was located nearby, quickly installed, and all was well.
Yesterday I was cruising along doing 70 and noticed a sudden increase in exhaust noise. No loss of boost or power. Upon examination I found that the outflow pipe from the turbo to the muffler pipe had pulled free. It seems to have two or three piston-type rings remaining on the turbo attachment point, as part of the joint. Is there a technique for reattaching this? Not your usual spring clamp I see on many exhaust connections.
Any advice or insight would be appreciated!

Thanks for the heads-up.  Will spec slide width and length and fabricate mounts myself.  This should insure best access and ventilation.

Wait as long as you can to buy.  A lot of the fun is in looking.  Know its going to take either (as others have said) a lot of time or a lot of money.  I think we took about a year to buy and wish we had waited longer.  We are very happy with our bus but we still see some great buses for sale that cross our path and we often think about upgrading Smiley

Be careful when you buy.  Make sure you have someone besides yourself look at it for you.  We have found that there are lots of hidden things you cannot see that only an experienced bus person would know to ask about.

Be careful, some of these units only have access to oil filter etc. from the bottom, so beware when designing the perfect mount.

    You should be able to drill the holes and tap them yourself. It is not that difficult. You can do the indexing with a divider and play with the setting till you have the 5 hole marks equidistant from each other. That is how we did ours.
