Yep...

That's why he had no brakes also with 60psi..

It seems there's no other possibility...

It certainly didn't rain in the exhaust and no kid did it...

We run dry exhaust stacks in the lobster boats. Straight up from the end of the manifold, some with 8" pipes. There is no way possible that much rainwater got into the exhaust. Had to be from the freshwater tank.

I'm curious about his statement of "the water in the air filter was clear". How does that happen? The only way I can think of is water being poured down the air intake on the curb side of the bus.

Curiouser, and curiouser.
No water in the crankcase, yet full to the brim elsewhere. No electricity, nor compressed air until very recently, yet picture of air box looked like it had been wet for quite a while.
Got to love a good mystery.

Watch the video...


The air intake line attaches directly to the engine air cleaner, a dumb idea...


It should have it's own air filter...

I disagree,nobody changes the compressor filter,but if its on the engine filter it gets changed.
On newer engines the compressor inlet is off of the intake manifold,with pressurized air from the turbo.
A good plan.

I see your point but I still think they should be separate systems...


I don't like the idea of a valve going out when I need air while going down a mountain...

I wonder does anyone have a picture of where they tie the line into the intake. I would like to do that mod and move it to the post turbo side.. just not sure where to connect to the intake. I will have to do some snooping and see if I can find a plug somewhere in the intake.
