Riteo.

Thanks for the explanation.  I suppose they are made of steel.  However, aluminum can degrade to a powdery substance.

I am waiting to hear from Clifford after he sees the pictures as to get it or forget it.

Thanks,  Donald.

The wheel hoop is the arced structure of which there are 6, (one for each wheel...)(1 inch square tube) (mandrel bent) that forms the outer arc of the wheel well, to which the aluminum siding is attached, that point being where all of the road grit and salt most often attack the bus structure thus the first places to "rust through".... where the rivets first start popping out/off...

At the first bus conversion convention I went to in Laughlin, Nv, both the Prevost and MCI factor guys were there with their RV conversion shells. How about having someone from Detroit Diesel and Allison Transmission come to talk?

I ran N65's just fine on my non turbo 8V-71-much easier injector to find. Good Luck, TomC

Do you have circulating air feeding the inverter? While charging, the inverter will get warm-and possibly shut off if overheated. Good Luck, TomC

Donald, you are talking to a dummy.  What is a wheel hoop and is that really an indicator of lots of life left?


if you cannot put a screwdriver thru the wheel hoops....this bus has lotsa life, imo.

Well, BusCrazy, here we are again.

Since I have already emailed John Silver to not go to inspect the bus AND, having looked at more pictures of the bays and having Eagle1992 comment on the bus AND AWAITING Clifford's comments on the new pictures, I may be calling you to look at the bus. 

Everything is contingent on everything esle......... Grin

Hey, Donald.

Great then.  I have already called John Silver off however, some others on here have volunteered to inspect it.

These bus board and their members are beyond wonderful.

Thanks.

This bus see-saw thing is getting me dizzier.

The left side vertical member in the first photo, is not rusted thru...atypically, that would be one of the first places that would "rust through"..indicating to me that this bus at the price is well worth investigating...

the horizontal steel abutting below the bay floor is intact, another indication the the "normal" rust has not taken initial degrade.
