Re: Hay, and the unroller.

Interesting up-date. Thanks. I usually check this forum a couple of tines a day but missed this one when it was fresh. We'd Taken the 4x4 Tahoe to Anza Borrego state park to check out the Ca. wild flowers and a great show it was! Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. My little bus is somewhat dependent on compressed air. The entry door is pneumatic and the Toad supplemental brake system uses compressed air to apply the brakes. I will install a pressure gauge in the dash when I find just the right one (Probably don’t really need a gauge because the doo...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. We're back from our annual "Lake Mead" trip all safe and sound. Unfortunately the bus didn't fare as well. I pulled off the freeway in Baker, Ca. with the intent of slowing enough to let me fire up my A/C and get back on the fwy--which I did but not before driving through an ope...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. We're back and other than being a little wet (not in the bus) we had a great time. I'd post pics but the place looks the same as it did the last time I posted pics. The BB1230 works as advertised which makes it easier for us to dry camp than before. Somewhere along the line the low pressu...

Re: 1955 Chevy 6700 Bus RV

Since photo f----er-- bucket started jacking everyone around I've been using Postimage.org. It is free and easy enough to use and allows for direct posting here on nomadicista. So far so good. I don't save my pics anywhere but on my own computer and even that I back up regularly--but then what do I ...

Re: 1955 Chevy 6700 Bus RV

Best post in a long time! Thanks! Won't ask about how the black tank got emptied--Wify still blames me for the death of our willow in the patch where I cleaned out my new to me black tank--after dark. Ha! We'd all like to see a few pics of your project. Since Photof--er--bucket went sower I've been ...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. I just completed the installation of a Sterling BB1230 in my little bus. I have just begun trials with it and this is what I've found to date: 1) STUDY the installation manual--lots of tricky concepts there. 2) Keep in mind Ohm's Law. Voltage equals Current times Resistance. When I first ...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

My slides came from Accuride and are rated at 350# per pair. Accuride makes heavy duty slides up to 1300# per pair. You might look in the online Granger catalog as well. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. I got the battery tray completed and tested today--it works. Just needs some paint now. Jack https://i.postimg.cc/qRKqzbDN/20180923_140300.jpg . https://i.postimg.cc/FzQRcywD/20180923_135502.jpg . https://i.postimg.cc/nrYL1sJZ/20180923_135530.jpg .

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. Just a quick update. In preparation for installing a Sterling Products (England) battery to battery charger I decided to upgrade my battery tray to a roll out version. Well, I managed to make an addition to the "nothing is ever simple" File. I read stuff upside down just as easi...

Has any one heard how Dusty is doing after his stroke last spring? I am hoping he is OK. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. We are just back from a little outting and it was a great success. We met up with a friend and his 1950 Chevy PU and just relaxed (and ate). The PU has a '71 Chevy 250 with a close ratio 4 spd stick and just purrs. The weather was cooperative with daytime temps in the low 80's with a ligh...

Re: Dusty's Bus

Hey Dusty. I'm on my way for a short camp out in the company of a friend who camps out of a 1950 Chevy PU with an aluminum shell. Anyway, it made me think of you so I thought I'd just check in to see how all is going. Give me a shout when you get the chance. Jack
