Had a heck of a time getting our brake lights to work Saturday the folks that converted our bus switched to a different fixture and bulb and it was a chore finding brake lights but we got them working. Made it to our first stop about 3 and a half hours from home and I am kinda freaking out. Ever since we changed the compressor out my bus has quit leaking both air and oil.
No oil on the toad and the compressor rarely cycles. It's a different bus. I pressure washed the motor before we left so I could see any leaks and I didn't see any. We're at a cute little park with a golf course and I'm gonna try and play nine this morning. Have any of you gotten a little paranoid when you had a rebuild done and your motor quit leaking? Feels good but kinda weird at the same time. We will keep you all updated

Got a call from Rick about an hour ago. He was in first gear heading up highway 16 out of Buffalo into the Bighorn Mountains. 18 mph, 170* temp, and absolutely no smoke.

I could hear the grin on his face!!

He said the bus has been running great and they're having a great time.
