    Ambulance Camper/ Expedition Rig Conversion FAQ

    It is true that the O-rings, which seal the return lines from leaking or air intrusion, can be sucking air after shutdown. Especially if they were installed dry (w/o a bit of grease) and have been bumped by working on the enging5, or are really old. That type of air intrusion usually results in...

    M2 Freightliner Ambulance Conversion Project. 2007 Crew Cab
