29th July 2009 Troublemaker == Starter

Because of which the Bus could not be started

30th July 2009 Starter == Troubleshooting done

Starter serviced, new brushes installed.

The starter is now as good as new.

Now i only need to wait for my mechanic to come.

For his convenience to travel, i have provided him the pleasure of using my M-800 since last 4 days. :<

Lets hope he comes and starts the Bus.

We can push start the Bus, but how do i stop it, NO BRAKES ( he he he),

The starter is serviced, today evening we are sure to start.

I am doubting if i need to start it as of now, received a recent threat that "IF THE BUS STARTS, I AM GONNA STEAL IT"

So ...........?????

Buddy, Fresh updates for today.

10:00 pm == Mechanic comes home, starts with little bit of tuning and other stuff.

11:00 pm == Everything is set, but again the starter gives way, Poor fellow by Beetle had to donate its starter to get the bus started.

12:00 pm == Starter fitted and a second battery goes into the bus(Electricals not done yet) and still we could not get the engine firing. phew.... another half an hour passes without any result, mechanic changes firing order and again tries...

12.45 pm == Roooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrr roooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Engine fires after 8 long years for the first time, too much of smoke,and a great sounding roar, Everyone is happy, this was the moment we were waiting for since almost 20 months. Now i feel we need to take the bus on one small round. heck...! the brakes are not yet ready, its already close to 1:00 am.

1:00 am == We decide to try some tricks using the hand brake(silly of us) we take the Bus out, my brother behind the wheel,and my ever so excited kid holded onto her sleep just to witness this moment.

Aahh.. that thrill and excitement on her face to see her "MICLOBUS" start and run was priceless.

We took it out for a simple one km run (without brakes) Risky but it was fun.

Some pics to quench everyones thirst.. lol

NOTE: Till today, even presently, I HAVE NEVER SAT BEHIND THE BUS's STEERING WHEEL. Mera number kab aayega.
