Ya as far as I know, got it off that weird brad guy who's dad used to own bow wow over there, he kept the sterling kit car though...........

It's a Canadian bus, has the vin tags and the aristocast emblem holes

Haha

incredible journey johnny...life and all that happens and this bus and the build! i'm super stoked for you! way to go and congrats!!

Bus hasn't got much action since Kelly park trip [-X couple outings that's it. We got the trans back and turns out the circlip on reverse gear popped off ](*,) ](*,) gonna throw that one back in and give it another shot.

Also need to flip tie rods I think? The bus isn't that low (I want to get a bit more out of it) but the rods are at one hell of an angle! This bus was pretty hard on tires on the trip #-o
Can't really flip at spindle end so I think we going to try and do it at the pitman arm with some flip bushings? Any opinions?

Yeah, those spindles should already be reamed. The tie rod will go in from either side.

Jb, get yourself a repairmans tapered reamer to flip tie rod ends. Those bushing deals are silly.

I think I looked at them when assembling and didn't look reamed? We have one of the early up to 1/2" reamers but for the life of us couldn't source the late larger one? Snap on discontinued it so we told? We're gonna tig weld the bushings on for piece of mind? :-k
