You can have fun with any bus, panel, bay, whatever. Just gotta keep them going every year.

Could still happen. I thought it was on too short notice and early last year. I'll look at the calendar.

Did seem like short notice last time. Hope it's on as I need to sell all the stuff you made me drag home last time. Wink

Stan I just got done reading through the whole revival and it was great to see the backstory on this bus and how many happy miles its given you. Great job man! Looking foward to seeing you in a couple of weeks at your swap.

Finally solved a vexing problem on the '61 bus tonight. Previously my batt light only worked very dimly, and I could only get the batt OR oil pressure instrument lights to work, but not both. Drove it this way for some years now and almost cooked the motor this summer when the fan belt broke and I didn't see the very dim batt. lite on.

Turns out the switched power wire from the ignition switch (black wire terminal 15) to the instrument cluster was not there at all. I ran a new wire and the instrument lights work great now!

Now I need to rebuild the wiper motor, and maybe install a correct radio in the dash.

Cleaned and re-greased wiper motor gearbox. Also fixed loose old power wire spade connector at wiper switch.

Revived an old AM/FM Sapphire II radio and used a newer speaker in the bus dash speaker mount.

Had to do a faceplate mount transplant with a similar Sapphire I AM radio.

Yea I really enjoyed the radio yesterday evening during a "wind down" cruise after working all day at my shop. It's such a great feeling to get in my bus and drive down the road, knowing that at least for the moment, everything is working well enough to just enjoy the ride and smiling when a favorite song is playing on the radio.

My daughter and I had a great time at Buses by the Duck on Long Island in early June. First time I had ever been to this event.
