I Many of the bus owners I have come across are pilots and they have had a huge influence on me. Most are anal about service never run a part till it breaks and have superior equipment and very infrequent problems because of it.
Joe, we have never met, nor have you seen the crap cars I drive, but being a pilot I do maint the heck out each and would drive either to east - west coast without hesitation.
Bill @ US Coach has repaired my largest leak (line to turbo) and I drip very little. I am interested in a slobber tube collector. I picked up a 4" dia sch 40 PVC, but too large. I am thinking of lightweight structural tube, maybe steel, alum if I can find it. Weld ends closed, fittings for inlet, air breather on top, drain down below. I was thinking of two, one on each side (duh) about the size of the engine cradle tubing. The starter side would have to be removable for starter change out.
Whacha think ??
