Hey guys, hope you are all doing well. Today, my bus is starting up but only for a couple seconds then bogs out. Any thoughts?

I'm also hearing this noise again... http://youtu.be/q1CyitEufWU

Thanks for your input

Slightly off subject, but I am probably going with "walkie" forklift batteries.  I worked for about 8 years in distribution, and we had some of these batteries that were over 15 years old, being used 1-2 shifts per day, 6 days a week.  The small ones in the walkies were 12VDC, 600AmpHr rated.  Since my only 12VDC loads are the Frig, LP GAS heater blower, and LED lights the battery should last a long time before hitting the 50% discharge--then switch to the second one and charge the 1st when I can, or use a tiny little gas gen(quiet) to do the job.

I looked very hard at 24volt forklift batteries but the lack of acid vapor and no watering got me to AGMs

Guess it could be a spring brake but I'm more inclined to look for broken return springs or seized anchor pin.

Tom that is a DDEC l engine it's a different world from your old 71 series the ECM controls the shut down ( oil pressure and heat) the override will let it run for a few minutes, you better start looking for a Pro/Link or a Kent/Moore reader that will read a DDEC l they are priceless Roll Eyes welcome to the world of electronic engines it's going to be a different learning curve for you my friend

Thanks, Donald, I wasn't sure that I wasn't missing some trick.  I pay a lot of attention to knowing about brakes.
