Never heard of that brand but they are still around I see them on standby generators at the casinos here.

One guy here had a set in Eagle he bought and removed the batteries because he didn't know what they were. They are neat when you fill the cells you cover the acid and water with mineral oil to keep the water from evaporating sorta like making them maintenance free old technology making a come back like the induction cook tops from the 1930's

Ooh. Good one Dave. I wouldn't be surprised. I have the exact symptoms except brakes don't work. I'll dig around the bus next summer and see if there is one

Can someone tell me if this is just a dream?

Is there a battery that I could buy that actually lasts 15-20 years?

Scott just wondering if you maybe have a 24 to 12 volt converter that might be shot in the back somewhere. Mine was blowing the runners but I had stop and turns. Figured out it was the converter box doing it. change it and all was well.

That's the same video I posted. . .

When there are shots of that Nova bus's underside I was looking at the rear axle setup  -  it looks like a dropped-center axle with an offset differential (the driveshaft appears to go in along one side).   I guess that's the only way to do it for a low-floor bus.   Are they T-drive or some sort of V-drive?   Interesting that it's essentially the same design as old British double-decker buses of yore such as the Bristol Lodekkas.   When folk with those old buses in USA are looking to upgrade their drivetrains, maybe that's one way to do it by using parts from a modern low-floor bus?

That ISB 6.7 (and the 5.9) are tough little engines. Cummins Marine has the 6.7 rating up to 550hp-course that's a 15 minute peak rating. In our Freightliner M2106 and 108SD trucks, the 6.7 is the most reliable engine of our entire line. Considering now many we sell, you don't see them very often in service. Our standard engine is the 200hp @ 520lb/ft. We usually use the 220hp @ 520lb/ft torque for the 26,000gvw. Then going to the 33,000gvw, we bump it up to 250hp and 660lb/ft torque. Good, quiet engines that get reasonably good fuel mileage. There's a 360hp @ 800lb/ft for RV/emergency vehcile rating. Low mileage use. Good Luck, TomC

Yeah, I ended up giving a big old {shrug} to the pile of pins on the back of the switches.

My concern now is what the DDEC expects.  Undecided

That is where the installation and application manual comes in handy, some place on the web you can download one for free use the search option here. Lol then you get a double whammy with the first generation ATEC like on your 748 lots of fun chasing the little wires huh

I standardized on 7 blade connectors about 20 years ago. I usually have a couple of trailers at a given time and one or two vehicles with towing capacity. The electrical connections work in any combination. I'll do the same when I get a hitch on Sophia.

LC, I've been trying to answer your email, but my outgoing mail server is not currently working. I'll get back to you asap. We're well and finally through with the nightmare month. Thanks for inquiring.
