Air Solenoid and Fuel Line Replacement
« on: June 13, 2024, 08:25:49 PM »
Hi there
Been dealing with a saggy driver side when parked. I’ve read numerous threads looking for the solution, last being water in the system ‘condensation’ unfortunately I’ve got no drains off my two stacked tanks behind drivers slide. Blew air out in service bay, turned on leveling system manually so I could raise front high. Over a six day period I’ve measured the height no change two days after that driver side started coming down 1/2” per day. Every day I’ve checked both sides with no change on passenger side until today, up a 1/2” . Have had no drastic temp changes in SW Washington to cause that change so.. is there a check not holding on the leveling valve?
2nd I’ve seen several posts about changing the fuel line from the secondary filter to the engine, I’ve found all the parts list and info to do it , it’s the why. Tried to find it in the ask Dave pages bu never came upon the why just that it seem to make the busses run better. Is it the wrong type of hose?
Thanks Michael

Search the forum for "fuel line leak"  I think Dave talks about the line from the primary filter to the transfer pump. Some break down inside. I updated the primary filter to Cat and changed the line to the pump. I would have to say getting rid of the Racor filter made a quieter running motor.

Found the post on the hose all clear now. Thanks
Have an appointment for the air issue in Eugene unless there are any recommendations for a capable shop in Portland OR/ Vancouver Wa area

Shop that knows the system, most of the buses of this era were built in Eugene / Coburg. Can’t find any shop in the area I’m comfortable with.

Good choice.

Kaiser is a second or third generation operation. They can do repairs that a lot of other shops can't or won't. You'll pay a little more but you'll be in good hands.

And they are honest.
