Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

SC, I'd rush on down to Sears and sawbucks and take them up on their offer before they close down--science be damned when there is something new for free! Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey SC, I'd be the first to admit I don't know what I'mm talking about when it comes to gas additives. I went with Sta-bil because it was available I guess. Of course I'll never know if it really works because I have marked my calendar with monthly start/run cycles thereby taking all the science out...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All, busy at the typewriter. Well, I learned a lesson—but not without considerable pain to reinforce it. Gasoline really does go bad. A year ago I replaced the Yamaha ef3000iseb genny in my bus with a brand new model of the same ilk. Same rip snorting electron pushing device I had but with all...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. Today's ramblings come from the "can't leave stuff alone" file. :screwy: A short while ago I was crowing about finding a new gas valve for my bus heater. I no sooner finished that up when the gas valve on the wall heater in out “granny flat” failed (or at least so I thought at t...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Tango. Dextron III is what my service manual recommends. It also recommends burping the system with the front wheels off the ground. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Thanks Tango. I've always wanted a '57 tbird but could never afford one so when this '03 retrobird showed up real cheap at a tow yard lien sale I snapped it up. The fins, tail lamps and head lamps are all '57 parts I hacked on. The white walls are made by a specialty tire company near me. They "...

Hi Dick. That's strange, I can see them in the last entry on page 47--maybe I'm just special. :D Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. I've been busy rebuilding the old Duo Therm heater in my bus. I wrote it up on Tapatalk (phone app) but it won't post here so I've done a cut and paste job hoping I can get that to post. I haven't figured how to increase the font size at my end so it probably will require the reader to en...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All. I'm feeling all smug. I've had a check engine lamp glowing on my little bus for a year now. I talked to the local Isuzu dealer about it as soon as it came on and was told that it would cost $200 to scan for the problem and then we would go from there. The bus seemed to drive just fine tho...

Its an app on Android and i phones and probably others that lets you visit forums and post text and pictures. It is free and seems to work fine. I downloaded mine from the "play store" icon on my phone. Jack

Has anyone been able to access Nomadicista.org via Tapatalk? Sure would be nice to be able to post from there especially since photobucket took all of us hostage a while back. Tapatalk is simple to use for both text and pics once you can get hooked up to the forum.

Thanks, Jack
