I'm actually more impressed by the size of the trailer being pulled by the bus in the first photo..


     Each of those windows is a (coffin-sized) sleeping compartment - single only!

The by-pass releases the blower lobes so when the turbo boost is higher than the blower pressure the blower turns faster allowing the higher boost of air into the airbox.  More power, less black smoke.

so im guessing the bypass acts as a check valve sensing positive pressure above the blower from the turbo.

keeping the blower from acting as a restriction.

So if turbo pressure > spring rate then bypass, or does it mechanically allow the blower to free wheel.

If this is true and there was an available port above and below the blower you could do an inline calibrated check valve - just a thought..

Sorry to say, Tom, but that is exactly what happened when our tranny went out. I distinctly remember hearing the rev, right before it wouldn't shift. It was a B500 and the Allison guys said that is when the final little bit of clutch went out. We needed a new tranny.

I hope it works out better for you.

I would guess Paul Von Fange from MN will probably do video. He did a great job in Blytheville.

I am poring the floor for the bus barn next week, hopefully it turns out better than yours has (no I am not trying to rub salt). If it goes crap though, I can only blame myself as I am the one doing it Undecided.

I'm curious about the burnt smell of fluid.  Does that normally only mean burnt fluid b/c it got too hot or does it typically mean a catastrophic break down of the transmission.
It has been my experience that once you see/smell burnt fluid it is usually too late. Damage done.

Was it just a faint hint of a burnt smell? Or was it a strong obvious odor and color? With only 5k on the oil and filter and being burnt would not give me a positive feeling, especially with the high temps.
