9 months and counting

We are now half way through the 9th month of our FT being worked on. The front end was finished up in late January and she wheezed her way up to Bernd's shop in Nacogdoches. The fans have completed their round trip to and from England, only to have been upgraded so the original adapters didn't work. That didn't phase Brend, he just started hunting for new ones. As Bernd dug into our coaches engine, it seems like he keeps finding new things that are wrong, the latest some type of sensors that were supposed to have been replaced last year correctly... apparently they weren't. When we get this coach back, I think that we will have a brand new engine.

Given the sensor replacement issue, you might want someone to look at the IFS ball joints. They were recalled last year due to improper torque and as I recall, casual visual inspection is inadequate.

We received the recall letter and had the IFS ball joints checked. Thanks though for letting me know about this. The sensors had been replaced due to them going out and the replacements were fouled up .
