If a campsite was that unlevel, I would move to a different spot. I use my leveling jacks but only for minor adjustments. All 4 wheels stay on the ground and most of the weight stays on the wheels....

I would not trust the gauge either. I had my oil pressure tested at a shop with a proper gauge and it was different (higher at idle, and about the same at higher RPM). There is an oil pressure...

I stand corrected on that. I recall someone posting about oil dripping from the dashboard for the oil pressure gauge so that pressure switch could be up in the dash board. I can add that to a list...

There is a lot of focus here on the facet pump which was only added in 1983. Previous models relied solely on the mechanic lift pump in the injection pump. This was a very poor setup for a...

To confirm, you said your bus will only go 45MPH? What were the RPM's at this speed?

I did not say it was the best design and nor did I say it was a poor design. I see in your diagram that you have separated two of the six batteries with a solenoid. That would protect two of the...

The ignition explains the no-starting... but not necessarily the transmission popping into neutral.

As voltage drops, amps increase and thus overloaded circuits and burnt wires. It can be a...
