Thank you for the useful info. I've never around RVs, let alone a Wanderlodge (grew up with a big family tent!), so regardless of what work he can do it will be an epic learning experience. Any other tips appreciated - I'm going look for some more specific threads for further advice

Any bus problem, other than motor and transmission work, that I can't fix with WOG help and my bus is heading north, George rocks!

Find a good truck parts house and ask where you can get hydraulic brake parts for a 1969 Bluebird bus.
Once you start working on hydraulic brakes you need to go all the way,rebuild the booster,the wheel cylinders,everything.

I'm not saying it can't be done,but those parts may be hard to find,and finding a tech that knows about those old brakes may be hard to find too.
Mike H did a brake rebuild about 10 years ago on a hydraulic brake Bird,listen to what he says.

Default George Morris

Excited to head to George's place in Byron GA in Oct. I have to say I have never met George but I feel as though I know him already, he has gotten me out of at least three issues via telephone, he's like an encyclopedia when it comes to Birds. One of the nicest people I have even spoken too, can't wait to meet George and get some of these small things fixed. She's almost perfect, with George's help she will be !

Although he's never asked, I always try to include a little extra with my check to cover some of the phone time. He's a great guy. I've never felt overcharged for his services.

I did the brakes on the 69 bluebird INN and the new owner did some brake work last year in Fresno, CA. He called me for parts and I sent him to Sac, CA to a school bus brake shop that had parts to get him going. Ford truck said they had to send the boosters to them because they were sert. to work on school bus brakes.
