All i get is cut. copy . paste edit edit using fullscreen edit in external get info file show file and so forth, but nothing shows a url , when i try it on my pc nothing comes up, Too bad cause ?I have a movie and 13 really extensively edited pics of exactly how I made the change on my coach. sorry, Im not able to figure it out. steve

I believe that you use the get info from what I read here Click here to learn How to Get the URL for Pictures on a MAC

I know very little about MAC's only what information I can find on the Internet, if this doesn't work for you can send the picture to me in an email and I'll post them here for you. Send to iamflagman@aol.com put Polycon Manifold in the subject line of the email.

The video you may want to load onto http://www.youtube.com/ and then post the URL to it here on this thread.

I think a Mac is considered a SOC (some other computer)
not to be confused with some piece of apparel you install on your foot
They are all computers but some have different idiotsyncracies
not unlike bluebird and other sob (slightly over board)

Actually a Mac is very much like a Blue Bird, it is "the kind", and all others are SOB's or SOC's

Default oil leak

Looks like I will be doing this modification in the very near future. I thing Steve did a great job and I will try to emulate his work. Thanks for the posts.

Bill Bre... it sounds like the 87 FC has the oil pressure sensor located behind the lower dash instead of outside over the oil cooler.

Those who have old chevys may remember the idiot light activation switch. That is what this is. I can get a special made socket on it , but, there is no way to turn it, not enough room for a driver of any kind. Futhermore I, after inspecting it, can not be sure this is where the leak originates, and may choose to replace the entire oil tube(oil feed) up into the dash so where none of us will have this trouble on this bus ever again. However, I cant get anything off until I get the first sensor off. Now I have to figure out where the little brass looking tube feeds down beside the steering column. I ll keep you all updated as I go. Thanks to all of you for help, I least I know I am not alone, Thanks too, to Rob, The San Jose firefighter, I'll call you when I get this thing fixed. Just a note, Rob, I would rather fight a 4-4-4 than do this, at least I knew I was getting somewhere with the fires.

Bump...Bill Bren...read this post.

Is it the fabric covered looking line coming right off from the oil block right by the filters? Once I have done that I can run the wires to underneath the bus where they are on an '88 ? Then I will rebuild the manifold and splice the wires. We'll see if this works. The pressurestat switch was not leaking, but it looks like it was replaced before and someone extended the pipe it was on where you could get to iit better, but, it think that put extra vibration on the coupling and made it break.

Posting pics is no big deal - just attach them using the paperclip icon in the advanced WOG reply editor. I have a Mac and take pics into iPhoto first to crop them and then export as JPEG, full size, medium resolution to make the file size small enough to post.

Default Oil leak under dash

I had the same problem under my dash and it was a pressure sending unit made by Stewart Warner, Im pretty sure it for the warning system which also includes low coolant level and overtemp. I dropped the bumper down removed the grille and the access door to get to it. My Bird is a 87fc
