I too think it is good the problem is though the search function here is not that great anyways and it screws with a person asking a specific question but it's there just takes a more searching

I am starting this as a new thread to avoid extreme thread drift.  I do not think that a drifting thread is necessarily a bad thing.  There have been many times when I have skipped reading a topic because I did not find it applicable to my needs.  However, when I see that that same thread seems to go on longer than it should, I take a look at it.  Many times, after the initial question is dealt with, these threads drift a bit into all sorts of interesting areas.  So I believe that a little drift not only can be a good thing, but adds to the depth of the community (dare I use the word "organic" here?).

Not sure why this thread morphed into an oil-in-the-air-system debate.  The problem is not related to the air system. It's all about the fuel rack shut-off lever sticking. The OP even said that in the third post.

But, maybe we can discuss the DD3 brake chamber parking mechanism next!  Roll Eyes

I quit using those old antique DD3's and updated to the new and improved DD7's!

Clifford as usual you are correct on both accounts the air bubble would most likely have been noticed before FL from IN, but we don't know anything about the driver either.
And yes if a Detroit dealer had done the repairs it would have been warrantied. 2 problems there are NO DEALERS in the central IN area know anything about old 2 strokes ("we don't work on weed eaters here" or "I can fix anything as long as it has a port to hook up my laptop!" are real responses given from dealers in that area)
#2 If they did do a repair it would have been a complete rebuild @ $30,000 + and who knows how long.

Never heard of Tommy Kaylor, but Sam Kaylor in KC is quite well known and a good place to go.
But for east coast Luke @ US Coach is THE PLACE to go.

Suggest you contact Luke at US Coach in NJ. He has a good reputation in the bus community. I'm sure if he can't do it, he can recommend someone.
