Wow Dennis. I bet my wife wouldn’t let me in the house after working anywhere near your engine. I could probably get greasy just walking by it and then I’d have to scratch my nose and ears and who knows what else !! Pretty soon I would be just a walking greasy spot. I grew up around bulldozers and farm equipment. Done my share of work on old leakers. Makes you feel good to keep plugging away at fixing and keeping stuff going after some people would give up and go buy a plastic POS.

Hope you can get all that cleaned up a little bit and maybe slow the leaks down some. Gotta love those old Detroit’s. They are great engines but they always leak some oil.

In the 3 years I've owned my 35 year old bus it's had way more oil from hydraulics on it than anything coming out of the engine.

I concur Andy, most of the oil on mine was from the hydraulic fan motor being sprayed all over. Had some leaking from the rocker covers, but have new gaskets on there. I cleaned the top of the engine pretty good on that last go around, the next time I am going to tackle the bottom. I missed most of that when I was cleaning the engine last time. It would be nice to go under there and not come out covered in oil, but that’s just the way it is. I have long sleeve shirts and pants I wear when I know I am going under the engine area.

Jeff did you think about getting rid of that canister type filter??? I did some reading and some people think it's redundant... Thoughts??

On the 84 it is not redudant, it is the only filter for the fan oil. The filters in the reservoir only filter the oil returning from the power steering. The fan oil returns outside of the reservoir filter so it is solely filtered by the high pressure filter. I would definitely keep the high pressure filter and I did on mine. Figuring that the fan motor is as expensive as it is, I would want to try to protect it with as much filtration as I could. I think the filters are cheap insurance for your hydraulic system.

FYI I think the high pressure filter is there to protect the 12v valve for the fan, not the fan motor.

Really to me as long it’s keeping the fluid cleaner than it’s doing it’s job. Clean fluid is better for everything in the system. All I know is what leaked on mine was the motor. Would clean fluid have prevented that? Who knows, we can speculate all day as to what causes the failures or I can just replace fluid and filters and hope I do not have to touch that system for another 35 years. Fluid and filters are cheap insurance in my book.

Hi jeff. I’m looking for the part number and source for the fan... I have a keyed shaft...

Also you got the hoses from surplus center correct?? Do you remember the lengths or do you think I should measure all mine??
