Can an Eagle Guy work on a GMC?
« on: February 09, 2012, 08:03:33 AM »
Some of you have seen Clifford's(Luvrbus)handiwork before. I have not had the pleasure, but I am suitably impressed:

Any one would be proud to have that powerplant in their bus.

Maybe that extra nice paint job will seal the engine better and keep it from leaking oil.  Looks Good though! Good Luck, TomC

I heard the pigment in that color paint reacts with the base material while it cures, turning it into petroleum distillates.  I'm working on a thesis proving that if we took a bunch of big rocks, painted them DD green, and put drain pans under them, we could eliminate our dependence on foreign oil.

If you have oil leaks fix the leaks there is no need for a 2 stroke to leak most are self inflected anyway, nice paint jobs makes for easy leak finding if any   

good luck

Total agreement on the no oil leaks on a proper Detroit rebuild, nine never leaked, just driped once each at air box tubes after shut down and check valves open.
Nice looking paint job, hope the rebuild is equal to it.
We all know about the nice paint job overhaul.  ;D

Guys don't worry about the paint the owner did the painting on most he did his engine right even with using cheap labor (me) he is a friend not a customer

Hey Clifford, been trying to get in touch with you. You must be pretty busy, eh? I'll keep trying.
