Hello Brill46 (and the rest)!
Iím very glad to meet another present Brill owner here!
And, your coach is beautiful! I just hope to get a tenth of what you have.
I think we have the same engine, as I'm seeing too many plug wires for a 6-cyl (but that's what it is).
Iíll be more in contact with you once Iíve pressure-washed it and put a battery in. Hopefully, you might have a lead as to where I can get a rear roof marker lamp lens and possibly other parts Iím not aware of yet-
Youíve already answered a few questions Iíd had with just your description. Very informativeóThank you.
I decided to give an update so folks here didn't think I was a "jump-and-run" type poster.
There's nothing much to report, but here's the update-
I have another week before mine is sitting in my drive. Iím so looking forward to it.
I went with the hauler to get it today.
All the tires were upójust sunk in the ground! One rear tire was low and it held with air.
He decided not to use the wrecker he brought (gas job) and plans to use his diesel rig.
But, the main reason for not getting it today was he felt he needed a longer chain from the back of his truck to stretch under the bottom of the Brill, aways. He feels the rear section of the bus might get damaged because there isnít much of a frame in the back.
It has to be pulled out of the yard from the rear, then re-hooked up in front for the long -haul home.
He really likes it too, and doesnít want to damage it in any way (a thoughtful chap-).
I plan on documenting the haul homeófor a few different reasons-
1. Just because Iíd like to keep it as a record
2. If anything happens, it will be additional visual proof
3. If anything goes wrong, I can use it to help solve any mysteries or use it as a guide for the next time.
4. Iíll be following the hauler, and heís going to give a hand with any issue, which might arise from the delivery of such an old piece, so'll I can take "road-shots" of the trip.
Also, Iíll have a full array of my own tools along with whatever the hauler has, including extra air hoses and extra impact wrenches.
I'll keep all updated and post new pics when it's home, or on the way.
Mind the gap!
