People cook with gas, some prefer it, resturaunts do. Some people prefer electric stoves and heat. Its about personal preference,  costs and space. I prefer gas, sometimes I boondock,  gas allows heat and cooking without turning on the generator, or being tied to a pole. For me that does it. Personal preference, no need to go further. Lvmci...
That's so right on. There are plenty more coaches carrying propane than electric only or nothing. With reasonable safety considerations during installation planning and use, it is safe, so it just comes down to personal prefrence, ala lvmci!

After buying my 1983 MCI 9 about 2 yrs ago, I have regularly been reading the threads here. But I don't recall any discussion on the Prevost conversion documented on the YouTube channel: RV Chief's Prevost

He has spent a lot of time, sweat and money on his conversion. I was wondering what all of you had to say about his bus and/or his conversion.

He has now finished his bus and is taking it on the road. In this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NftCDaC5apU&t=1335s   at time mark: 15:16  his is driving the bus through the under belly of a stadium. When I was watching that I was thinking; I probably wouldn't even attempt it. I'd probably get stuck.

What are your thought's?

Those bolts have a locking type sealant already if you purchased them new from Detroit,if not pre treated use the Loctite

I am speaking of the 3/8" NF bolts that hold the flex-plate and ring gear to the torque converter flywheel on the MT647.  I have a clearance issue, so no washers under the bolt heads (actually shown to be correct on the Allison assembly detail page, so I feel a bit better about that.  I was taught to never install a bolt without a washer).  My question is should I use red loctite when doing the final assembly, and torquing of those 12 bolts?

Thanks, Brian.

By this question you can correctly infer that I have finally fully completed my adaptation of the Cummins ring gear to my modified Detroit flexplate and installed the transmission onto the engine for the last time...   Smiley

Complete Coach does sell good products but I doubt those engines will be flying off the self at that price,you would need to run the serial number by Detroit to see if they could be upgraded to to 470 or 500 hp before you buy one

I suggested to him that the Chevy dealers could have hydrogen fuel stations,  they would get those vehicles back at their stores  every week or so, to sell them batteries and tires. Turns out Honda  had a hydrogen fueling station at the CNG fueling station,  because Honda had given two of their hydrogen powered  Fit models as an experiment, to the city to beta test in LV...

I need the pinout schematic for the turbine sensor for the B500. I have the wtec 2 manual but my bus is a wtec 3 and the connectors are different on the ecu. Anyone?
