Good Morning, Frank, my other plan is I'm going down to talk with the bus garage mechanics where I retired from, those guys deal with these things all the time, and a one guy used to help out in my shop once in a while, so maybe I can get one or two of those guys together and have them put the trany in. I've checked the truck over and can't find any other major things wrong, I need to pull all the wheels and check brakes replace wheel seals ect. on these disc brakes I really can't see into them to check, but need to pull wheels anyway. That's all from here right now, nothing else exciting going on.

Terry, just watched your video. Good job!

Wish we lived closer. Long story how I happen to have this, but I have a 150 CFM diesel Ingersol Rand compressor,,,,, my sandblaster would have that frame clean in about less time then it takes to load the sand!

Doors look great, cleaned up nicely!

Good Morning, Lloyd, that would do the job nicely . I need to find a shop that does that, haven't looked yet, but that shouldn't take much.

Hey Terry, Hard to tell from the pics, but a really good steam cleaning might get you to where it needs to be.

Wow, just goofing around last night on google looking for a front bumper for the rig, and my gosh they get good money for them! A nice alum bumper will set you back!

Terry,
I like your other plan, I vote for getting your buddies at the bus garage to do it, sure beats crawling under there yourself. If the front bearings are oil bath and they are not leaking, I don't know if I would pull them, if you think the seals are marginal, then that is a different story. Cleaning up the frames is always a challenge without a sand blaster. Sounds like you have a good truck for you to start on.
Frank

Lloyd, Steam cleaning is a must do anyway, the original owner didn't change the spin on filter for the trany and it rusted out, (I used to see this alot, filters aren't made very well) spraying oil everywhere so its a mess under there. the frame is not really rusted just needs some sprucing up, then I think I'll use a box liner paint on it, just easier to sand blast. The bumper that I would really like is made in Canada by Herd, its a "moose" bumper but its like over 3000.00 just for a bumper . Gonna have to wait for that one . Frank, I have to run a junk car to the graveyard today and it runs me by the Bus garage so I'm going to stop and see what their up to. The seals aren't leaking, (yup they are oil bath) just wanted to check brake ect.

Terry,
If I remember correctly, you can take the calipers off to check the pads without removing the hubs, now if you have to change/ turn the rotors, then that is a different story. Good luck on getting the guys at the bus garage to change it for you.

Morning All;
Terry the video was great. Good clarity. Appreciate the update.

Great suggestions everyone. Way out of my depth here so I will watch and learn.

Have a great day.

Good Afternoon, Frank, yup I think your right on being able to check the brake pads without taking the hubs off, as long as they are okay that'll be done. Stopped at bus garage, of course the guys I wanted to talk with one called in and the other is on vacation. Gordon, thanks, I'm still using my phone, need a dedicated camcorder. will be posting updates.

Just thinking out loud. Lots of time to do that while driving around the yard on a lawn mower.

Looked at a MDT a few years ago with our son. It was a 650 with a custom box. Lots of stuff done to it.

One of the things Joel noted was they did not put an LED light underneath the sill to light the steps up the tank when the door was opened. Could be something to think about as it is probably fairly easy to do.

Hi Gordon, I like all the thinking out loud stuff, lots of ideas that way . I'm probley going to go with alot of lighting on this TV, ( like the way it looks anyway ). The steps will be built into the Toter body.

Terry,

Stop in Gallupville and tell my brother-in-law I volunteered him to help you with the tranny!
