    Need an air pump for the brake system. Pulled it off Sat. and started the search today. Didn't get very far The company that made it was the Midland Co. in Owosso Mich and I coulden't come up with an address or #. That is my pet project for this week. Called Wieland they are checking also. Anybody you know that has access to air brake compressors ? It is a 1974 GMC.

    Dunno, no plans yet, gotta fix the bus first. Only took 1/2 hr. to take it off, easy fix if I can find a pump quick. Rat just e-mailed me a place in Detroit that might have it. Sleek, the one you posted is the wrong one. Thanks for looking. I will post some pic's of the model and #'s and shift into high gear tomorrow on it. I'm thinkin' instead of brats this year maybe a Big pot of Chili and cups, mabe easier for everybody with all their gear on !!!! Of course my wife will make it so don't worry !!!! She kicks out the jams when it comes to that kind of stuff !!!!

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
