Terry let me work today,with a glove on my hand.
We got lots of small stuff done,tomorrow we can do some wiring and maybe start this thing up.
Still waiting on driveshaft parts,they are a week away or so.

A few minor leaks were found and today we will be fixing those,then on to the fuel system.

we spent the day supporting tranny cooler lines and other time consuming things,the coach is aired up and standing tall,the brakes are working and the air throttle is working.
where did the day go?
I never touched the fuel system,maybe tomorrow.

Today is Monday,its always busy with BBBB and today was no exception.
I was busy most of the day,but i did get to work on the 71 for about an hour.
The fuel tank is under one of the inside closets and i need access to the top of the tank,so we cut a hole in the floor of the closet about 5''x12'' so we can put 3 supply lines and 3 returns in the top of the tank.
The floor was 3/4 plywood,screwed to steel with spray foam under the steel.
We used a hole saw and sawed 4 corner holes and then used a sawzall to cut the piece out,sawing from hole to hole.
Easy peasy.
The steel floor is thicker than a nickle,i have pics to prove it!
Maybe tomorrow we can get the hole cut in the fuel tank and the lines installed.
