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...

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

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. Way off topic here but---- This is not bus related exactly but it does give me a smig of hope for mankind and I'd like to share the good vibe. I'm a picky old SOB so I expected the worst. Wiffy and I decided to replace our 35 plus year old roof (Gotta keep the bus dry!) just because. Its ...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Unbelievable! Someone at Photobucket must have thrown the wrong switch--hope it lasts because without the pics my posts are more than a little dry. Thanks for the heads up Stuart. Jack :thumbup: Just a quick edit: Though I have all the PB pics back I seem to have lost my more recent Postimage contri...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. Just thought I'd say hello as I don't have much to report other than the repairs on my toad are done. I'm looking forward to a "camp out" at a local vintage travel trailer show next weekend. I'll share the happenings after. Jack
