If you need me to come over and drill a new hole through the fan shroud for the throttle cable just give me a call. I’m free all day tomorrow.

Thanks, but I'm perfectly capable of screwing things up on my own without anyone's help.

I've heard of grinding out the bellhousing like that, but I've never seen anyone do it. That's very cool! :)
I'm afraid my heart would be racing, thinking of everything that could go wrong... Good job! :!:
I must admit that was a little scary but Bruce handled it like a pro.

I'm sure he did -- and most importantly, he's done it before! :D

I drove the bus home from from Bruce's shop this past Wednesday, July 3. And have been driving it daily since. For the first time since I got the bus, almost 18 years ago, all of the electrical components-lights, directionals, flashed starter, horn, etc.are working perfectly as they should be. Along the way we fixed many issues that needed to be addressed that could cause problems sooner or later. Bottom line, it is a much safer and reliable bus. It was also a very good experience for me to with a guy like Bruce and I learned a lot from him and his vast knowledge of busses and auto mechanics in general. I think I did OK for the NFG guy! :lol:
