I am certainly no expert in bus conversion construction, but why not just use a liquid nails product? It can be used for multiple surfaces and is easily sealed with the vinyl grout.  I would imagine that it is much cheaper than Sikaflex as well.

Vinyl tile grout.  Have found the clear ge silicon did not bleed thru coarse granite I used in previous conversion and tile came up in pieces(little) with hammer and chisel.  The liquid nails brand did show thru granite!  Bob

My silicone hoses leak too David I don't think they ever stop leaking but now the clamps are a lot cheaper

Scott, you need to careful I did the Sikaflex on some marble trying to cut a corner in a year you could see all my lines where I applied the Sikaflex my wife was not a happy camper Grin, ceramic tile may be different than a natural stone if it is glazed on both sides I don't know for sure

It sounds like you stripped the old floor out completely like on the previous MCI, and you want a solid deck from flange to flange. It looks like you either get longer sheets, which would be wasteful and more expensive per sheet, or figure a way to extend the flange with metal.

Correct.... Ok I'll have to buy long sheets. Using advantech

They make a grout with flex capabilities. I have some left over. Next time up at bus I'll look at label. I used Ge silicon for adhesive.

David,are you using silicone hoses ?
Yes.  They don't deteriorate, but they never vulcanize to the pipes either, making them easy to leak unless you tighten the bejeebers out of the clamp Shocked

It should work if ceramic tile is a surface that Sikaflex can bond to as well as metal. If it can take the stresses of body skins, it can take the stresses of movement around a shower stall and probably be much better than conventional troweled on mastic. Buses do flex a bit.

If it is a matter only of the kingpin hole being worn out of round, it might be a candidate to be bored out and re-bushed to the correct specs.
