Do you ever spend a lot of time working on things, but never feel like you get anything done? That has been my week so far! On our last several trips we’ve noticed that the bus engine has been running hotter than normal and we’ve come to the conclusion that the radiator needs to be replaced. We have also had a few problems with the starter on the bus and knew that we would have to replace it in the near future. So I’ve spent the last couple of days trying to research the most “price conscience” (cheapest) way to resolve these problems.
The cost for a new complete radiator assembly from Prevost is approx. $3,500 but you can purchase just the core for $2,000. That would seem like the best option… but after some research I found out that we could get a core built for only $1,300! So that has been ordered and will hopefully arrive on Monday of next week. I also ordered a new starter for $350 that will arrive tomorrow and be ready to put on next week. Just part of the joy (and responsibility) of owning a bus! So, if you’re in the Jackson area and would like to get a little greasy next week… come on out!
