Instead of taking the time to write up multiple posts on every forum I've decided to just include the link to our bus blog.

The 8v71 removal process has now begun.

We took Dreamscape out for a short test run. With the extra power, Jakes, power steering and several other upgrades, I'm just totally impressed with it. The Stone Bennett Shifter works great and the sound of the Silver 8V92 is unreal! 8-)

Wow, Paul, you have done a ton of work to take your bus to the next level! As usual, it looks to be extremely well done. When you get time, we would love to see some pictures of this work.

Now time to enjoy it!

You had posted an ad for the old engine and parts. I think I read that you had sold them. If so, I need to mark the ad with sold.

Jim, Yes, I sold all of the items listed.

I'll put together some pics of the work that was accomplished soon. It was a lot of work, but the end result was amazing! The old bird got some new life! :lol:

After reading an article that Jim wrote in BCM March 2009 regarding tow car lighting, which incidentally was shown to me by Neil Flute, I was able to install the relays and we now have very bright and strong lighting on our tow car.

Thanks to all involved in making this available to all of us!
