Actually, the 6V-92 methane engine (a dismal failure) also had glow plugs. Good Luck, TomC

I sure like my single 130gal tank on my bus, and my single 150gal tank on my bus (also a 75gal for gen). Good luck, TomC

I have an Atwood propane furnace. We go to Mammoth Lakes, Ca just about every year which is at about 8,000ft. No problems-haven't had to fool with the burner air ratio. Good Luck, TomC

MCI used Euclid studs as OEM I bought from some trailer co on the web and they were still 10 bucks each plus 3 bucks each for the aluminum wheel nuts

D700 Flyer was one model before the merger with AMGeneral. AMGeneral redesigned the front to more duplicate the GM transit and Flyer went along with that design that started with the D800. Flyer was made as a T drive, AMGeneral was made as a V drive since most all buses in the '70's had Vdrives also. The AMGeneral A model had engine cradle problems since the V drive has all its weight on the rear with left side (engine) heavier. The B model (thankfully what I have) has strategically placed reinforcements that took care of that.

As to your windshields-probably will be near non obtainium, unless you find a Canadian bus company with D700 windshields laying around. I once saw one guy that rebuilt the front of his transit so to accept flat panel glass. Looked a bit odd and not too pretty, but then you could get glass cut relatively cheap. Good Luck, TomC

Nel -

VIP has kits available to mount their wheels to just about any vehicle, including the 4104.  Take a look at their selections, then call and in the process of chatting with a sales rep, ask if they've got any "blems" available, which are usually minor cosmetics.  Several busnuts over the years have saved a few bucks that way.

I would not suggest going any smaller than 18" for the same reasons mentioned above.

I just went through buying wheel studs for a truck I am working on. I found out that Dorman.com has a good way to look up sizes and other related stuff. You can get part numbers etc from there.

Chessie ,
 
I will give Luke a call and I'm not sure where the hoses go yet, but I will crawl under and take a look.

I know in the back engine compartment the reservoir for the pump is separate from the pump and I filled it with 30w motor oil.


Thanks, Nelson

   I've recently broken TWO wires that feed our cable modem. One should never move the bus while thinking about the next project. I need to use an airplane-style checklist before switching on the ignition.

But I've not yet made that list.

For some stupid reason.   

      I've made that list ... it's a good thing.  DAMHIK!
