Post New Message The bus requires the following tasks before it can be driven safely on the road the distance you indicated:

• Attach left rear brake chamber and hook up labeled hoses to it insuring clearance to left rear leaf spring;
• Attach last drive line segment that slips on and bolt it to differential, six bolts under bus, this segment was cut to length and balanced;
• Adapt torsion bar located under bus to rear axel and frame;
• Lower bus to ground off blocks, 10-20 ton jack needed;
• Connect diesel engine shut off cable from panel to engine;
• Adapt throttle cable from pedal to engine pump;
• Adapt radiator shell to radiator and front frame and attach hoses to engine.
• Check radiator to engine hose connections and plug any heater outlets, fill radiator with anti-freeze;
• Insure that all lines to transmission cooler and air brake system are secure;
• Assure that air filter is clean;
• Charge battery bank and start engine;
• Back up bus and test brakes;
• Adapt fender and hood assembly to bus
• Wire up light system and test;

This project was stopped four years ago, all materials and tools necessary for completion were there. If you are interested in unit I will check with yardman to ascertain current status and condition of bus/ contents.
