The gas heater isn't for Murray. It's for Brad's bus. His has no heat, even 
though he has brand new heater boxes to install. He came up with a used gas 
heater and thinks it's the cat's meow, but I am superstitious and don't want

                  Yes but unless it is rebuilt or new don't use it.  Many you 
see at shows are there for looks

                      Dual brake circuits = maybe $200   Disk brakes = $1500

                        Murray is quick, and those Springdale elevations.  
Sounds like a good idea.  Ever thought about disc brakes?

                          I plan on doing that soon. If I understand right, you 
have to weld in a small piece of steel to mount the dual circuit master 
cylinder. That's all.

                            I want to replace the master cylinder on my early 
67.  It has the 66 style MC.  

                            I was talking to the guys at WW, and they suggested 
that I consider converting to the 67 style for more safety.  Has anyone done 
this?  They made it sound easy.
