I'm with Jeremy and agree it might be easier to use two 2-way valves than to locate and set up one 3-way valve.

Just dreaming, thinking. My current bus is a skoolie, Gillig 636 with 3208 cat @ 250 hp, 5 speed manual trans. Bought and converted for a specific trip. Alaska. Did that. I would like something nicer, faster. Preferably with a mechanical engine (not a Detroit) and manual trans. 35 foot is long enough. 102 wide would be nice. I know next to  nothing about transit buses. What should I be looking for? I would welcome your thoughts and reasons for same. Thanks Alan

In some ag applications (sprayers) three way valves are used. They would either be plastic (can it take the heat?) or stainless ($$$$).

Likely, when your welder starts to work on that hole, he will make several new ones. That steel may well be so corroded that it is very thin by now
and trying to weld up a leak like that may only create more problems. I went through exactly that on mine when I had it all apart. The more I welded,
the more holes I had. I did finally get it to seal up, and it has been holding, but...

Welds don't normally just develop pin holes after 40 years. There's a reason that hole appeared.

Good luck. It's worth a try, but don't be surprised if it can't be patched.

Hi All

Been travelling for work 3 weeks this month so I've been slow working on the gathering.  I've updated the list, we are at 28 buses in the northeast and 3 others that have shown interest in coming to the gathering.  The latest list of buses is attached.  I'm looking at campgrounds in the Lake George area, I'm going to call 4 or 5 of them this week along with the chamber of commerce in the area.  I've traded emails with Nate about using a park in his town of North Creek NY but there is no power available so that would not be my 1st choice.

I will post an update in a week or so.

NE bus list attached.

Mine are the double lobe air bags,  Buffalo is out of business, the Greyhound terminal is probably just a ticket office. I don't know where they get there work done,.....maybe El Centro? Probably Phoenix, but it wouldn't hurt to call them and see what they say.

Great meeting you Mark and Donna.  Grin Thanks for the info on your front Camera. I found a similar one to yours and it was only 57.00 batteries + 12 volt hookup too. Can be hooked into a laptop also so the cops on the scene can view it if needed. Man that was scary. Angry

JB may indeed hold, but I think I'm gonna try the real thing.

Because the leak is at the top of the steel beam, there's no way to get any tire 'slime' to it. In the past, I had to use some of that slime on one of the rear bags that just would not seal against the plate. Still sealing just fine after several years.
