Starting  to disassemble the old bus interior

7-09-07
The bus 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 ..
