Hello Dick.When are you going to come over to Georges and labor on my bus with him for nothing like he likes to do? He makes some very cool tools too. Its a blast.
Hope Fla was good this year. We need to get togeather again soon.
Yes safety first. Let me make a safe guess.
I will say that on Waydes 90 Setra either it DOES also have maxis(parking brakes) on the tag axle making the 30/30s the right parts OR someone has replaced the correct ones for the drive axle with a set of less expensive smaller and IMO inadequate 30/30 or its only a 2 axle bus sorry for not knowing that LOL
switch gears a bit........
Here is a small piece of something a fellow was asking me to help him with.
This is dangerous. Very dangerous. Dick combine the prior performance of your bus with something like this and then try to imagine a panic stop or cross town traffic.
IMO the air compressor on this bus is damaged goods now and possibly prone to failure too. Who knows how long this situation took to progress.
and it is out there more than you would ever guess.
" When I got to the RV resort (Aztec RV Resort in Margate,FL) to check in at the office, I let the coach idle and when I came out the right rear was listing (10 minutes). I got in the coach to go to my lot and the air was just above 50psi and when I accelerated it came up. By the time I got backed in to my lot, the entire coach laid down on all sides evenly."
Poor old bus. Id a laid down too if Id been huffin and puffin trying to stay up like that.
Anything under about 70 or 80 psi and those maxis were talkin about are no longer sufficiantly released and the brakes begin to drag.
