Good observation Les..... In any of those cases they would more than likely replaced or rebuilt the entire engine as what would have been my choice in this instance.

I have to say that this is precisely why I want a bus instead of a S&S rv.

...well, one of the reasons  Grin

ok - maybe one of the 'reasonable' reasons.... Tongue

not like there's any appeal to the styling of a 4104, or any coolness to polished aluminum, or anything like that. certainly no reasons like that... Shocked

Got the bus back.  Runs good.  But we are 3 hours from home and have no 12v charge from the alt.  Have stopped at a rest area and started the generator with a boost.  Hope it charges the batteries enough for 3 hours of headlights.

Jumpsuit - Maybe the no-charge is due to a minor assembly oversight.

If so, maybe a careful examination will uncover the culprit.
Wire off, connector unplugged?
Maybe an Eagle hand has a more specific suggestion of what to look for.

Would you guys believe when the dash was redone in that Eagle the PO did not install a volt/amp gauge in the dash,I told Marc it probably was something simple maybe a wire,belts slipping or setting so long the charging relay stuck but he is getting closer to home lol

good luck

We'll make it... at some point.  LOL.  We are about to remove the alternator and have it checked.  Hopefully they have another one in stock.  If not, we will just leave the bus here until Gary comes back from Myrtle Beach.  No hurry at this point.  We have certainly learned to be patient.
