Starting to disassemble the old bus interior
Just came in,
However, The A/C unit is not working
now,.. we will have to look into that ..They said it is probably just low
.. That's not uncommon to have to recharge one after it sits for awhile
.My mechanic agrees it probably just needs charging ..
And we see oil sprayed on the back
cap, doors and bumper over the engine area .The driver said he had a problem
with a leaking oil line going to the turbo and had it repaired, it's not
leaking now ..I wrote to Angel and they indicated they feel the driver was
correct and it was only a hose leaking .
I am talking to our mechanics now and they seem to agree too ,...they feel
it was a simple line mess up .
They think it will be OK now too ..
We are checking all seals and hoses for leaks but everything
seems OK ..
You can see a little puddle of oil on cooling line hose
clamp , we think that's from before he fixed the leaking line ..
Below engine seems tight in areas that could have a leak, but all seems OK ..
