How to improve driver's air?

Get close control over the outside air vent.

Air intrusion will consume the good you are trying to do with the AC.

happy coaching!

yes the OTR AC should have driver controls and separate fan, at least the MCIs do, you could also boost the driver fan ventilation, just a suggestion, lvmci...

I still have every part of the OTR system, converted to 134A. Both heat and AC work great, but...How would I boost it for the driver? That would be FAN tastic Smiley

The other thought was for those who have torn out their OTR systems. I can't imagine driving without it...those darn windshields... BUT I am going to be adding material to the area above the visor, VERY soon.

I can see the beast (luckily, newly painted and free of road grime) from the curb side door, but nary a belt. The blower motor and associated lines are there. There is also a wide strap looking thing, but it doesn't have belts (That I can see) From the left side, there is some kind of adjustment bar, and the beast bolts up to that, and directly to what looks like the bottom of a tree, for lack of a better descriptor.

Ya know, I'm going to find a picture.

"I have never seen a planetary belt driven accessory drive on any Detroit fwiw"

Isn't that similar to the Epicyclic drive? If so, I don't think I've ever seen one on an engine that wasn't enclosed?

So what I want to know is ... if we show up next winter bus-less, will there be some spot way in the back next the interstate where non-bus-dwellers can park?  We do have a diesel puller but it doesn't leak much so we won't really fit in anywhere.

For comparison, I drive a new school bus at work. It has ac and wifi. New cost - around $150,000

Drop box fan? Is there such a person? Did the newer MCI 35 footers run a drop box?


I haven't saw one on the newer 35 ft Turkish made buses,some Eagle owners installing the 60 series with the 4060 Allison are using the 4060 with the drop box made on the transmission to use a 4:30 or 4:56 rear gear it's a neat setup IMO
