Default Finn's Inn Express Transplant (Powertech Generator)

Hello all,

I am slowly, very slowly, making my way back to New Hampshire....
de winterizing

Right now I am holding over in Wanderland to assist with the generator transplant to "Finn's Inn" 82 FC 35. Switching out the old Perkins for a 15K Powertech.

Coach is currently operating on life support and stable. Completed extraction procedure this morning. So far, so good. Will keep you posted with pictures to follow.

NH BIll

Cut that wire...label that wire....cut that wire...what is this wire for?



The old organ (Perkins/Marathon) starting to be removed drawer and all.



Some external hardware being removed.





The empty body cavity waiting to be cleaned before the new organ (Powertech) is transplanted.



The Finn's Inn Express feeling a little bit lighter on the curb side.



The Perkins being completely removed from the drawer floor.



The start of the cleaning process before the transplant of the Powertech.

That title scared the **** out of me. I thought it was going to be a medical issue..I was releived to hear it was just a bus issue.

So after the transplant, will the wheels start shaking?

Nice job!.. I saw that generator when I was over Randys, and it looked like it just came out of the crate! BTW what is Glenn doing to that muffler?
Bill, keep in mind the frost is heaving from 81 in Harrisburg, to home .
I hit one just before the Newburg Beacon bridge on I84 and thought I had wings for a sec!
