Belfert, I like ace's idea. Just do like Rosann would do in her TV show. Send your fuel bill cheque to the tow company and the tow cheque to the fuel company. Tell the fuel company you did not need the fuel because you had it towed and tell the tow company you did not need it towed because you had plenty of fuel. They will be confused and give up on you.

I often have that same problem both with wires and pipes.  Cut it three times and it's still too short.  Can't figure it out.

Is that why you get the cold shoulder at home from time to time? LOL

I was hoping to report this repair done today, but it is 40 degrees and raining.  Cold I can deal with, but cold and wet I would prefer to stay away from.  I probably won't get this done now until Saturday when it is supposed to be 28 degrees.

You should wait to try to fix it until the day before you're supposed to leave for FL.  These guys on here are all just waiting for your report.  Roll Eyes

Absolutely not!  I need to get this done ASAP.  This simple repair has been fighting me every step of the way.  It should have been unbolt the old one and the air lines, transfer the two fittings over to the new one, bolt the new governor on and reconnect the air lines.

I forgot all about it until about 3 or 4 weeks ago.  I've had the part for two years.

Brain:

Do you have a cutting torch. Just take an inch out of the center of your bus, that should do it and you won't be cold using the torch!!! Pull it together with a come-a-long and the hoses will reach. Make sure you block the bus up 1st.
