My youngest daughter is a decent mechanic, but no kids and probably none. She spent lots of time with me wrenching when she was growing up. I wish my grandson (my oldest's) would want to learn. Both him and his mom never tired to learn from me. Its the end of at least 4 generations of mechanics in my family.
Four of my boys were there for the startup, most of there 2 stroke knowledge comes from vintage dirt bikes, they all have bikes and ride and work on them.
six of the kids are mine, the one on the right is a friend of there's with one of my bikes.

Update. Fixed two air leaks, pressure protection valve, and pressure sensor.
Repair hydraulic line to left rear leveler. Replaced fuel line on secondary filter, freed up the solenoid for the gen tray, fired up and tested the generator.

Nice work Bob.. its coming together.. was the genny making power? My buddies just died.. I have not had a chance to diagnose it, have been too busy trying to get mine put back together. Did you have it towed to your place or are you working on it where you bought it? Nice of them if they let you work on it there, most wont let you do that.

The generator is making power, I tried the old redi line and it still works.
Copart will not let you do anything at there site, I had the coach hauled on a detachable flat bed, it is parked at a farm, I am working on the ground outside so this time of year there are not to many good days.
They were not to kind to the bus when they moved it to, and around the auction, I have a lot of straightening to do under the front, I had to remove the bumpers to get the generator out.I will post some pictures of the damage

Yea that’s what I was thinking that you would have to move it from the auction place.. yea they did a number on it towing it.. my buddies bumper is a bit messed up too. Luckily not too bad, just needs some straightening.

Default Tach drive repair

I discover an old snowmobile speedometer cable was the perfect fit to repair my drive pin. The cable was oily, so I cleaned with carb cleaner followed ny rubbing alcohol. I used a liquid acid flux that I use when I build control cables for motorcycles.
