Look in the bus projects page here on the board a guy there has one with a 600 hp Cummins he loves his BB
He wrote a complete description of the build and engine swap on another forum  -  he wasn't happy with the original Cat C13's 410 HP, so he bought a new ISX that he set to 650 HP after taking off the DPF exhaust and EGR.   Wow!   By early last year he had about 16,000 miles on it, "running awesome" in his words.   With that much power and torque, how else would it run?   He didn't report any problems like Penn State encountered, so maybe his own Quality Control is better than Blue Bird's !

Same thinking Kyle private second bedroom biggest issue for us. We noticed when looking for a coach used they were either for 2 or for 6 or more with bunks. Center hall makes sense with bunks.

 Chuck

Exactly. We had seven bunks in ours. If we would have wanted bedrooms, I am sure we would have gone side aisle.

And speaking of replacement, where does one get MC5 windshields?

Hi All, For reasons that I will spare you from (unless you INSIST :-) I am installing a 16k Atwood RV furnace in a box mounted on the receiver hitch of my BB bus and using flexible duct work to run it into the bus from the rear of the box into the back wall of the bus - (6" or less). The box also houses, in a separate compartment, a gas bottle, a small generator and probably a small wheelchair battery to run the furnace (or I may just wire it to the house batteries)

So my question is this: - the furnace is installed in the top left section of the box - vent facing the drivers side of the box and heat ducted out the rear - So what would be the best place to get the "make up" air from? If I pulled it from the top or front (which is actually the rear- facing part of the box?) would that be okay? Usually it is pulled from inside the RV - I'm guessing because it is slightly warmer than the frigid outside air?

Any other considerations? - I understand the general issues of gas and spark/ flame and batteries in proximity etc but feel free to express your concerns :-)

No. Can't imagine it would be very effective, though, but maybe if it's really thick, and then only for small stones. I'd be concerned about vision distortion
and scratching of the film by the wipers.

Is it kind of like Nascar peel off windshields?

I have full glass coverage on my insurance, so I don't worry about cracks. I let the insurance pay to replace them when they get cracked. Professionally done
and all new rubber and glass. I don't have to mess with it myself. I've done it a few times, and it's not a fun job. It's been a few years since I've needed them
replaced.

FWIW you can buy the Jake rebuild kit from PacBrake for $125.00 the $292.00 is way too much to pay for the kit, PacBrake kit #P89201 has new control valves,springs and all O-rings

I didn't think there was anything legal that could be put on a windshield.

If there is, that would be great. I just drove to Quartzsite and back home to BC, and got 3 rock chips and one crack starting to spread. One hit was just North of Lake Havasu City on 95...
