  1. How so? Half the shop is equipped with 3 post hoists.
  2. Well, there is the legacy of the SLF, another quality Alexander Dennis product. transit buisness is a pretty small fishbowl. Word gets around. Fast.
  3. Why so guarded, Swadian? I've about 5 years hands on experience with mostly MCI products... Tell us, what puts you in such a knowledgable position? You can choose to remain as anonymous as you like, but information and credibility are often linked.
  4. Off that day..gathered with my friends at a bar called daybreak. (Now gone) we were all watching the televisions hung from overhead.
  5. Allows what? A TTC employee to work on a TTC bus? Give your head a shake, kid.
  6. Because you have bodymen on the payroll and they need something to work on. its not that hard a concept to grasp when you think about it for a minute.
  7. I'd be doubtful if it returned.
  8. It's been rebuilt. Laid up with turbocharger issues. Cummins warranty. Case in point: 1726's front doors.

  13. ....which initially ruptured from a dragging brake. Nevermind the fuel tank, even without that, there's more than enough plastic, foam, upholstery and rubber throughout the vehicle to produce an inferno.
  14. If they're anything like my units, the film is pre applied on the pane about 4-5 sheets deep. When it gets full, you rip it off, revealing the fresh sheet underneath. Of course, eventually you run out of sheets to peel. At that point the window must be replaced. likely enough time has elapsed that all the film sheets have been consumed.
  15. Loss of fuel prime is the presence air bubbles in the injector plumbing. diesel injectors operate on the principle that liquids are incompressible. Introducing gas bubbles into the fluid (fuel) makes it compressible, and can't build the pressure necessary to unseat the needle valve at the tip (no fuel spray)
