Aah. So, you broke free both center blocks and only turned the upper torsion housing and then bolted the lower block back in the stock location?John JonesModeratorFebruary 22, 2019 at 7:53 amPost count: 8119
BBOE, BOTH blocks turned same amount..
my current pamper, I was lazy and only broke the lower tube free… turned it and welded it.
Short answer…. I think the front of a bus is too heavy to be turning one set of torsions, you need to turn both sets the same amount so the spring pressure is the same on the upper and lower arms……WaynerParticipantMarch 11, 2019 at 8:15 pmPost count: 180
My update ….dropped the rear cradle, built a new nose cone mount, installed adjusters in front beam, installed a new WW bay tank with reserve assembly, adding a berg mid mount as soon as they send right frame mounts, still waiting on Nate for his “really good disc brakes”, hope to have it driving again soon if parts situation cooperates.

Great progress! Are you trying to get it driving by a certain show/camp out?
<p style=”text-align: left;”>we drive the shit out of our bus and it’s killin me having it down. Want to have it going again sooner than later, but the next camping trip will more than likely be the Ottinger camp out.</p>WaynerParticipantMarch 12, 2019 at 9:16 amPost count: 180ColeBModeratorMarch 12, 2019 at 9:56 amPost count: 2268
