Is that one of the White Yosemite buses?
No it's Yellow!
1924 or 25 Yellowstone Bus. White Model 15-45 like mine. They are using a fuel pump of some kind. The vacuum line has been disconnected. If sealed and cleaned properly a Vacuum tank should work as well as gravity. I see a lot of people going to electric fuel pumps which can cause other problems. Sure is nice to see these photos.
And they were having trouble getting it running when I passed.

George, Thanks for posting the pics and Also a close up of the sales info.
Not surprising. I would not wish my Bus on just anyone. They are wonderfully designed but hand cranking and steering one all day can wear you out. Just like a T, you have to know a little bit before you drive one.
These are amazing pictures.
P. S. If I had to guess, I would say the fuel pump they added is what was causing the problem!!! :o)
Richard, I stopped to talk to these fellows on Friday. They mentioned they were from Utah, and seemed to know you, and were most complimentary of you and your various projects, and the chap in the yellow shirt told me he has ridden in your red White bus. The were discussing problems with the fuel pump but didn't elaborate.
Very friendly guys who were more than happy to talk about the bus and mentioned that they had trailered it to Bakersfield, hoping to find a new owner. Over all I was very impressed with the workmanship and the knowledge these gents had about this big beautiful gem.
OK John. I can see that is Merrill from Draper, UT. I was looking at the Bus. Glad they had nice things to say. Merrill has been rebuilding those buses off and on for 50 years. I don't know how he does it. One is plenty for me. He had that one or one like it on Ebay not long ago. This is one of his on a tour we put on several years ago. I helped him find most of this one. It may well be the one that was at Bakersfield.
