    The radiator and fan were located on the roadside aft corner, as per standard practice. Here’s the business end of a couple:

    I wouldn’t say modern buses really have any better ventilation.

    At least the ground is frozen, and less permeable: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/trail-derails-manitoba-1.5022583
  4. Have you heard what the scope of work is? Any light mechanical like their 3 year PMP program, or is this strictly a paint job, and out the door?
  5. Sounding like a broken record here, I’ve already had to explain this only a couple of pages back. There needs to be work for the force of tradesmen to do during slack periods. You can’t just furlough them or lay them off. What would you suggest they do? Shuffleboard? Shadow puppets?

    There are diesel fueling facilities on the island for municipal vehicles and equipment. It’s stored securely inside a shop at the water treatment plant, alongside the tourist trams and various pickup trucks, refuse vehicles and tractors.

    Some differences...overall length, dual cabs, and doors on both sides being obvious ones. Smallspy may have particulars on any unseen nut and bolt changes.

    Smrt....I mean smart. Actually, the (J1939) multiplex harness is twisted pairs and a grounded foil shield, so it’s a 3 pin plug (Deutch on the Novas, cannon on the Orions)

    Yeah I should’ve added delivers instructions to the car’s VOBC too...Actually, I did wonder how they got a way with antennas immediately against a huge honking interference source. So it seems analogous to the cross braiding of the multiplex comm loop circuit wires, and Hall effect powertrain sensor circuits, etc.

    Tell your friends they give up too easily. Sounds like they need to start making this a health and safety issue, as the vehicle is their workplace.

    Didn’t even think those were possibilities. *smacks forehead* The double sided tape that holds them on is shit.

    But incorrect programming isn’t a defect with the vehicle. It’s incorrect programming. File a complaint with them and see where it goes. My employer follows up on customer service complaints, even forwarding then to the shop, where myself and others investigate and email back a response, and take corrective action if needed. Bitching in this echo chamber won’t fix dick.
