Where in the world are you located that you can't find junk yards?
I guarantee I can find you a half a dozen in less than 2-3 days looking part time from here that will be less than 4-5 hrs drive from you!

Scott is correct no access to transmission through the bays.
It's either going to be down through the floor access in the rear of the bus or up from the bottom of the bus!

Dave in my honest opinion if it were me and I was sticking with the 6V92 & wanted reliability, I'd contact American Fleet and have them build and ship you one and be done with it!

And yes I have bought from them in the past with good results!

There has to be. Having a pedal this high is insane. I know my mechanic friend says it can be done but as he wants green stuff too often, I'm using him as little as possible.

Well the old saying you get what ya pay for is never a false statement!

If I needed to lower one and it came down from above I'd cut it off and weld it back with an extension.
And if it came up from below I'd cut a section out and re-weld it. (but for the record I IF I needed to I'D do it, not that I'd ever need to do any such modifications to a vehicle)

The slave that mounts on the governor housing for A DD are hard to find most people just use the WM 388 universal and make their linkage and bracket then you don't need to change anything but the position of the throttle arm

Astro said; "The only issue is I have soda EVERYWHERE"

This is exactly the experience we had with our 1970 VW Bug when we had it soda blasted before painting about 15 years ago.  The paint has held up very well after all these years.

Well, 6 hours of prep and soda blasting and I have my bus back to stainless. I can't be more pleased with the result. The only issue is I have soda EVERYWHERE.  I protected the air intakes and motor area, but the dust is on every surface. We cleaned all day, but even a two hour drive the stuff is still clinging. I need a good long rainstorm.

I am putting all 6 aluminum wheels on.  My son got them for me for Christmas.  Just now getting down to taking off the front wheels and tomorrow I should be taking off the drums and then the hubs.  Then I'll see what I'm really up against.  Thanks all for the answers.

On a similar note, upon having good luck with 4 so far, I've just ordered another battery maintainer/desulfator: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200332201_200332201 . I have no financial interest in this, but for what I think is a good deal, currently with free shipping.

To update my last post on this charger (it discharges the battery if it is hooked up and the power goes out), I contacted the company that designed them and asked whether there was any switch that could be added to it to shut if off if the power goes out. Their short answer was no, and that "the 12117 BM went out of production in 2013, we now have solid state MCU BatteryMINDers that now shut off completely if A/C power is interrupted. Model 1500/1510 BatteryMINDer [is the] upgrade." 
Per Wayne Boerem, VDC Electronics.

These newer models cost more, but they have slightly higher charging current, and will shut off if the power goes out. For those of us who have the 12117, there does not seem to be an easy way to protect it from power failure.
