Don't you have a parts bus where you bought the running busses from?

Ron yes I still have the '89 S215 HDH in Idaho and have been working on a deal to either get it hauled here soon. Or I may put it on ebay! The rear end in it won't work with out changing the gear ratio, and I can buy a heavy duty truck rear end (dump truck, cement truck, heavy hauler) with either the right ratio or one close enough to work for a lot less than I'd spend just getting the other one home! I figure I can get the whole rear end from a salvage yard for $1,000 or less hub to hub! And a chunk to change the gear ratio in the other one will be close to that if I can find the right ratio! But great thought, thanks for trying to keep me sharp! By the way check out my new thread! I have new faith! Grin  BK  Grin

By the way guys I didn't mean to hi-jack this thread! See the new one please!

Nothing wrong with a little controlled detour every now and then... It's easy to get a thread back on track. Sometimes something is said that reminds you of something else. No problem.

Actually the thread didn't get hijacked, It was redirected by a Garmin GPS and took the scenic route. Oh.. Sorry.. I just had to mention GPS....

They should have called them " Go Way Off on a Back Road Adventure Systems "

GWOBRAS  ( I know it doesn't make sense! )

I would not like to think about a GPS program running under Vista.. Vista has to stop and ask your permission to CRASH ! ( for lack of a better word . ) Gads..

And NO NASA does not use MS Windows.. It is a custom operating system built for mission critical use. It is a DOS-Like based GUI system. Pretty neat but very expensive. Linux looks about as close as any of us will ever get to "reliable"

Too bad, IBM's OS/2 was almost bulletproof but Ol'e Bill G. took that and stomped the only better operating system into the ground....So here we are...XP & Vista...

It is not Windows like you and I use Windows, but it is still a Microsoft operating system.

And still... I have zero problems on my Windows network... so 'reliable' comes down to the user and setup apparently. Sorry you guys seem to have so much trouble.
