Conrad, Thanks for the advice but it will take me a long time to push the bus 150 miles. I still need an engine. I just needed to get wheels on so I can get it on a trailer tomorrow and then to the guy who's helping me get this bus running.

There's a fraction of movement that will probably not be noticeable. This will prevent the bus from shearing the bolts off if you ever have to make an emergency stop. Take care when you do this. In 150 miles, check the torque of your major bolts and nuts. Wheel bolts are notorious for loosening.
