    They also have a different load dispersal with less weight on the fronts. Buses are single Axel front and rear with singles in the front. That may have something to do with it. I also know they uses retreads on stears for semi's up here in places.

    The tires being the same i knew about. Already got them swapped. Didn't know there was anything other than radials. So that is interesting. As for retreads there is a lot of misinformation. Dit firbids retreads as steer tires for buses. They are legal on any ither vehicle. And from everything I...

    I checked the lo9-2320-209-12 (listed on my trucks dash) it is very in depth with grease points but after hours of checking and rechecking I never found the diff, transfer case, or transmission information aside from volumes. As for grease points I found the ujoints tend to suck if in the wrong...

    That is very true Mullaney. Most people in rebuild setups learn there trade and know it well but... That tends to be all they know. I have learned more working on my ownvehicles than be a part time shop assistant. (Aside from how nice power tools are) old me would have used a ratchet to brake...

    Makes sense about the replacement aspect. Like a buddy of mine working as a local fleet mechanic. He says if a part goes bad rather than service it he just replaces it. Where other mecbanics might service and rebuild. Just depends on the situation. Luckily from what I could tell (was hard as...

    Thank you for the info. Yeah I just looked at it like any of the standard trucks I have worked on and found them. The fill for the transfer case was in an oddball location in my opinion but used a light to verify what it was before using. The from diff was milky so i flushed it with fresh gear...

    I have all tms I could find downloaded related to operation tm9-2320-209-10, lube lo9-2320-209-12, maint. Tm9-2320-209-20, and parts tm9-2320-209-20p A lot of this stuff I am either having a hard time finding (the diff information) or must have missed/not remembered like brake psi. It really is...

    I see. I hadn't thought about that fact. Apparently even regular hydaulic brakes have a ton of psi but it doesn't seem like it when doing pedal based bleeding... Thanks for the info.

    My original issue was the fuel shutoff. I will look into this just in case but after ficing the fuel shut off she runs good. Just drive her 7 or 8 miles home yesterday from the mill she was at. Thanks for your reply. With all the "field" fixes I have heard of I think any issue could arise.

    That guide is awesome. Was actually just looking for that info. I can understand wanting to get away from hardline kits. I was wondering if I could use nylon airbrake line on the brake circuit. Considering dot 5 is non corrisive and non reactive. The pressure shouldn't be above that ove the air...
