"You should replace the fork drive too look on the pump where the lines attach it will tell you if you need the RH or LH.

I always replace the pumps with a DDEC high capacity fuel pump a little more work but worth it IMO"

Now I'm confused - I'm not DDEC concontrolled and not sure what a drive fork is. I'll try and attach a picture of the lines in - out of the pump.

No expense was spared with insulation on this bus it can set in the sun all day without AC and always be 15 to 20 degrees cooler on the inside than the outside temperature only heat comes from the windshields

I would use a paint called rust bullet before the bed liner is put down

 A couple of thoughts.  If you do it all of the way down to the drip line you will probably never have a leak in the roof and the roof will stay cooler in hot weather.  Doing the shrouds in black would probably make for a nice contrast to the white. However, in hot weather they will be absorbing heat and since that is when you would be running the ac it might make your ac have to work a little harder to shed heat? Could possibly affect the lifespan of the ac.? Maybe not an issue? Right now looking out my window i can see 3-4 rvs that have black units on the roof,....new trend? Have only noticed this in the last couple of years.

Next month we are taking the bus to Albuquerque to have the roof sprayed with bed liner ? is would it look better with just the flat part covered or bring it down to the drip line.

The roof will be white I am thinking about doing the ac shrouds with the same material in a black or would white look better ? I need to buy 1 new shroud before I spray then I will never need to buy shrouds again the liner material will make those last for ever.

Thanks John 316 and Steve for the bus the rust area is repaired and we are remodeling from the kitchen back only the dash and the door is going to be upgrade at the front

Yeah, there are height restrictions.  Look at the right hand column of the chart.  The max height for turn signals (I think front and back) is 83" (6'11" Huh? Haven't had coffee this AM) from the road surface.

Really doesn't make sense if you stop and consider. 

Bull Haulers have turn signal indicators built into the very top of their trailers, same with household movers (Bed bug haulers).  They have been around for quite a long time.  NASCAR and a host of literally hundreds of other trucks are running them in this country every day.

Mark - We were ready to head down a few weeks ago and have had a run of delays including one of our bay doors just about falling off. Lucky for us we were parked! In the meantime Roger got another buyer so I missed that one. Guess I won't be needing those torsions after all.

Eagle/Ted - Thanks, we like it and it looks like we will have it for a bit longer. I just missed a really sweet eagle.

Cheers
