Uncle Ned,

If the full time steering mounted on Huggy,s old bus is the one you are refuring to. Then i remember when Huggy Bear installed it he also added the hubbs, arms, drums and brakes from the same transit which together made the steering much better than any 04 with only shepard.
I will soon be selling a 4104 that Bob Voreck owned, Huggy Bear did all the updates to this coach, shepard steering, transit hubbs, cruise, E-3 brake valve and starjet paint (the roof is showing signs of peeling clear coat). Other than that it one of the best looking 4104,s on the road, 3 to 4 months away.

John

I have a generator and was wondering if I should change to an alternator?

 I'm impressed, did you paint the anodized (non-blue) part of the bus or is the anodized aluminum original?
 Very clean engine...

Original.  There are a few divits here and there though.
