I noticed that the coach's transmission TV cable is rubbing everything in its path on its way to connecting to the engine's fuel control. It doesn't take long to rub holes through lines and filters. The cable should be isolated and secured.
And as you can see in the picture Just A Newell caught of us underway, the line from the shifter column to the transmission is dangling down rather precariously under the bus too.
Both cables need to be better secured. I'd love to see some pictures showing me how things should look when done right.
The original converter (Robert Purdy) owned the coach from 1988 to 1995 and he did an immaculate job with everything he worked on or had done, and he kept receipts of all his work too. The second owner (Fred Nussbaumer) we are pretty sure did the automatic transmission upgrade sometime between 1995 and 2007. He did not keep receipts, and (as you can see by the poor cable routing) the work he had done was a lot lower quality. They didn't even neatly cut the carpet back when they installed the shifter column.
Based upon the records we've been able to piece together, we are pretty sure that in the entire 12 year span of time Fred owned the bus he only put 2000 miles on it though.
I am wondering about upgrading to a Stone Bennett electronic shift controller. Clifford recommended that to us when we visited him. Any tips on making this upgrade? How hard is this to do? Where should I hunt for the parts?
