Terry, it will be a couple weeks before I will be even thinking about heading north! I have to check Mona from top to bottom first! Then I will vortex all of the Florida weather north with me! Hang in there, spring is coming! Rail!

Interesting, I guess 52 psi on our coach is not crazy. It is a 8.9 Cummins 400hp with a variable.

Problem when my turbo went, they unit is currently only available from Cummins. They have not released the patent to rebuilders etc,,,, all this can be read as $$$$$$$$$. To be exact $2,300.00 for just the turbo. I am sure you don't have that problem.

Lloyd, no the turbo for mine is widely available, prices are also, if we had to go that way I would install a bigger and more efficient one anyway. tractor pullers use this engine so there is alot of stuff available, of course as HP goes up reliability goes down.

Terry , I bought a '74 Pete 352 coe from my old boss, had a 350sc comelong and a 13 spd. He put a ton of money in that truck and no one wanted to drive it as it was hard to start and didn't pull worth a damn, so I bought it cheap! Come to find out the company driver that was driving it couldn't find a place to put Either in it in the winter, so he cut a hole in the intake elbow after the air cleaner with his knife, right behind the passenger front tire! It sucked all that dirt in the aftercooler it had like a 1/2" of mud covering all the fins, broke a lot of bolts taking that thing apart and 2 days of pressure washing to clean it out, helicoils bolts , etc. But it ran like the proverbial r*ped ape after that! Oh and yes I changed the elbow he opened up! Bobby

Sorry guys. Made it home from Yuma this evening. We had good weather all of the way with tail winds most of it.

Our start was not so good. We were going to travel with Tim and Joe as far as Quartzite but when we went to move the big slide in we got a code on one of the motors. No repair people available!!! Friday to boot. Checking around I found the connection to the motor had come apart. Getting it back together was tricky. I could just reach in far enough with one arm to touch. After lots of bad thoughts, etc I was able to fit the connection and get it back tight. Slide works. On the road several hours later. Never did catch up with Tim and Joe.

They made it to Oklahoma safe and sound. Unfortunately they had head winds.

Catching up on the thread I see there has been a bad weather adjustment to the schedule. Unfortunate but one always plans for those kinds of days. It is to let the workers have a break as well.

Wow! Terry that looks cold! Glad the furnace is working good! Looks like a good day to do just what you are, staying inside!
Gordon, glad you and Janet got home safely, and had a good trip! Tail wind is always good!! Good to here that Tim and Joe made it to Ok. fine too!
Bobby, keep at it, and you will be done in no time! Sounds like that old cabin-over was a deal for sure! The old NTC 350 Cummins were beasts in their day!
I have a buddy delivering in the U.P. of Michigan and he is socked in! Been there, done that!
Every one have a great day! Rail!

Good Morning, I think when we did the spring forward we went toooo far . Bobby, I still love the old COE's even though they were noisy and cold I owned an International, and drove for a co that had International's COE's, There's a KW for sale down the road from me........Naaaaa. Popeye, this just is not funny anymore . Gordon, glad you and Janet made it home safe and sound, good to see Tim and Joe make it to Ok. Rail, it not only looks cold but it IS! 6* this morning. Looks like another very cold day today, might get to 40* tomorrow, but staying colder for next 10 days .

Looks like I'm still blessed by the weather gods down here on the coast.
The snow was only a quarter inch and last night never went below 20 !
Today is still on the cold side but full sun ! Predictions are for nothing above 40 for at least a week ........... Rail , you listening ?

For all those already retired and on the road or planning hard to be that way...........

The best part is we can now travel to a different drummer.
Plans are always in jello and can be changed anytime !
I no longer have to be anywhere on a schedule and just let the weather decide my "go or stay" decisions.

Gordon
Gotta love those easy , no cost repairs !
Glad to hear you and Tim are safe and at the end of the trail........
SO.... are there any travel pics and stories???? TIM?????

Lloyd
Another day closer for Debbie to be looking at all the PT in the rearview !

Terry,
I have one word, BRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!! Glad that I'm down here. A lot of people have been heading back north the past week, boy did they get suckered by the weather.
Bobby,
I drove a COE KW for a couple years, had a V6 Detroit, so it wasn't a ball of fire.
Frank
