You just figured that one out? Craig has been an invaluable source (resource, actually) for me. There are several contributors to this board that make me keep coming back. Oh, and you're one too. Thanks to everyone that contributes so unselfishly,


In the real world you all would be called ENABLERS.   Grin

Please stop making the bus the villain by having people thrown under it!

I much prefer making trucks the villain. Grin
On this board it should be PC to say " ....got thrown under the truck."

In my office, my co-workers know better than to make such villainous statements. Cheesy

Bubble Gum will work for a while too.  Cheesy  Everyone should carry a few sticks of Bubble Gum along with their roll of Duct tape.  Once a leak finds its way thru metal, corrosion has already begun.  If you fix one leak, it won't be long before it finds its way thru another hole as the metal has already been compromised.  Rather than fix one leak then maybe another later when it is at the worst possible time, in the middle of nowhere, and you then have water damage, IMHO it is not worth the hassle.  Rather than fix pin hole leaks, I generally just replace the entire unit then you will have another 10 years of a worry free water heater.  They ain't that expensive to replace and compared to what water damage can do, it is not worth messing with it should be only a two hour job to just replace it and forget it.  

Gary, that was plan 'A' that you just suggested. I had to go to plan 'B' as I explained in my OP. I'm sure I will be back to plan 'A' again in the near future. But hey, the holiday is here and I have other things to do besides crawl around in the belly of the beast.  Grin Oh, and then as recommended, there's always bubble gum  Grin

Yes it seems you went WAY overboard on this compared to some of your other projects.
You could have gotten away with an extension cord and a power strip with a built in breaker!

It's honestly not super loud. It's throaty. But not loud. Running without it is loud. Fitting up new intake piping and air filter today. I asked this elsewhere, but can someone tell me definitively if 1550 CFM of air is enough for a 500HP 8V92TA?

You have a mind like a steel trap...I kind of wish it would rust a little

Don't feel bad Scott it's been about 1/2 a dozen yrs since I dropped my phone in the portapotty at Arcadia and it still comes back to haunt me at times!

This and other sites are the last place to mix prejudicial remarks with the various posts. It is all about the bus, but some people are jerks and their remarks need to be ignored.

The 8V92 was making oil so bad I was changing the oil in the hotel parking lot every night until I could get the bus home and get it in our shop!
