hi smhaack, what type of bus do you have? it would help us if you put what year and model, as we all have.
 if it is a MCI, there is a rail that the passenger seats were attached to below the seats and to the outside of the seats below the windows. for whatever year and model, those rails were designed for crash worthiness, why not attach it to those rails and use the design that was tested by engineers and govt for crash worthiness.
  I got seats from a minivan, that the seat belts were attached to the chair frame, then the chair clipped on to a bracket that was mounted to those rails. lvmci...

Thanks for all the advice!
I have a 1980 MCI MC9.

The hub is comprised of two steel cylinders inside another with about 3/8" of solid rubber mold fused between cylinders the inside cylinder is bolted over crankshaft, out side cup with flange bolts to fan. When there is play (movement) of the fan due to deteriorated rubber the two cylinders break loose from each other & the fan sails into the radiator. Back in 82 a radiator core was $475, wonder what one of those beasts cost today? My fan at the time had very small amount of movement. I didn't think it was as bad as it needed to be to fail like it did. Fooled again....

.  Do you mean that the hub breaks off of the shaft or the flange breaks off.?

Those OP engines were 2-strokes.
Could they be anything else?!   I just like the idea of an engine without heads.   Let's hope that emissions and fuel economy don't limit their viability  -  what was acceptable half a century ago may not be acceptable now.

Fairbanks-Morse also built locomotives with this type of engines. They had problems with this engine design and they later left locomotive market.

Yep I bought a new 450hp 8v92TA in the crate with stater and alternator for $14,102.00 with tax in 1984 now they sell for $51,000.00 +. A new off the shelf B500 Allison sells for $32,000.00 now

Wow! I still have my build sheet or original price for my Cole Customs Coach and it was marked down to $435,000 in 1991. The owner I bought it from picked it up in Las Vegas.
