Does that have the electric pumps supplying the DD gear pump and 1 pickup tube or 4 one on each corner of the tank ? you did install the .80 orifice fitting on the return line where the pump can build pressure 

No electric pump. It looks like just 1 pickup tube in the tank. I reused the return lines from the original engine. Where does the orifice go? I will see if I can find it in the manuals.

He did actually refer to Mikes site and followed his instructions to a T. So I guess we are solid.

Consider changing out all the rubber fuel lines with one size larger replacements.  Also consider adding dedicated fuel tank booster to engine electric fuel pumps.  Consider dedicated return line from engine fuel pumps.  Also consider replacing all the fuel filters.  Finally consider a dash board fuel pressure gage.  Also in very hot weather operation consider a fuel temp gage.  Respectfully.
The fuel supply lines are like a garden hose. I think they are 5/8".

I have considered a booster pump even if just to help with bleeding.

There was a long recent thread about Mini-splits, so I am sure your experience will be valued. One of the problems noted with the stand-alone units is that room air is expelled through the discharge hose, which has an effect on the total cooling level, but apparently yours is doing alright despite that. It is hard to believe that your eBay buyer for the Neoplan did not go through with the purchase after you went through all the hassles of getting it going.

FN,

You should email your 4014 Serial Number to Jon Usles at jusle@aol.com.  He is collecting the S/N of all 41xx both living and dead.  Not only that but Jon is a walking encyclopedia on those buses so if you ever want to know anything about them or where you can find parts he can probably tell you.  He also may be able to give you the history of your bus if you don't already know it.

Jon has also written several articles about the 4104 bus for our magazine.  If your not a subscriber you should sign up now.  If you call the office to sign up for a 2-3 year subscription and you would like a copy of all BCM issues with articles about 4014s in them, just let us know and we will send you every back issue with the 4014 model buses in them for $2.00 each plus S&H so you can learn even more about these buses.  657-221-0432.

Gary
