OK I am trying to see if we have enough interest to get Bendix to set up a bus system brake class for us. At roughly $250 to $300 per person how many would be willing to attend it? Also maybe they could set up several in different regions.

Maybe Southern IN, KY or Middle TN?
8 (30.8%)
Maybe East Coast (NJ area)?
3 (11.5%)
SE like Southern GA or FL?
8 (30.8%)
Midwest MO, IA  or ?
3 (11.5%)
West AZ, CA, OR, WA ?
4 (15.4%)

So far I'm the one vote for the west - to work for us it would have to be winter - AZ, NM, NV.  If Bendix put something together Rickreall would also be an obvious candidate for a western location.  And there's a big audience there already.

BK,
  If you get enough interest, the class could be held immediately after Bussin' 09 (before would put it right on Christmas, and during would be to hectic with all the other rally events).  I can arrange a place to hold the class and parking at our place for several buses. Also have a busnut friend north of town with room for several buses.  Jack

it seems to have stopped the leak and turned off the brake light that was staying on most of the time even with the park break off.

see my other post yesterday on Lessons for Bus Mechanics

we got to keep this on top BK, otherwise no one will know it exissts and we'll lose our opportunity to become brake experts or to have a bus party. :)

so, bk, since you and i seem to be the only interested parties in this neck of the woods (if you can call West TN and NE Ohio close), let me know who to contact and when you all are goin in case i can find a way and it's close enough to the type of brakes i have to make it worthwhile.

(i got to get better at this cause my brake light is still on even after replacing the leaking line.

Jack why have something of this caliber after the rally? I think it would make for great seminar AT the rally!  ;)
