Hey hey hey guys that's the company I own(part or it) so be careful what you say. Now CAT and MAXXFORCE you can blast all you want. Smiley Those old CUMMINS engines were good no question. But you have to remember that the smaller B series are great in the light and medium trucks and school buses and have proven themselves many times over. It'll be interesting to see how that new ISV V8 will get over in the '16 NISSAN TITAN. It does seem funny that someone would put a old RAM TRUCK engine in an old CHEVY. Probably made the diehard CHEVROLET guys mad.

Five pin round male covered connection in the bumper. Same on the tow vehicle. With a double ended female cable to connect the two. When removed it leaves a clean bumper with just the connection cover, air line connection and receiver.

Well, it does show the contrast between a quickly produced product that won't last as long as something that involves good craftsmanship on a sold foundation.

Go for a 7 blade, easy replaced, if you need more capacity, it is built in.  Mount it high if you can, save yourself some grief.

Why even post it to begin with?  It has zero informational value on a bus board.

I started the floor lowering project > http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=24673.msg325547#msg325547

My plan was to add a number of inches of insulation in the shell but this would result in an uncomfortably low ceiling and I did not want to raise the roof of the bus so I decided to lower the floor 8".

I know I am sacrificing some lower bay storage but it is the best solution for my use of the bus.

I am going to fabricate a new firewall. The original engine compartment firewall had a number of cracks , welds, and other repairs.

When I started stripping paint on the firewall I found a large number of bolt heads and rivet heads that were held on by nothing more than the paint.

Most of these were hidden stress failures and I am really glad I found them!

Those are sissy engines. This is the real Cummins 220 with twin sticks, no power steering, no A/C-when truck drivers were real professionals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrWeAHdz80s Good Luck, TomC

If you are running electric brakes and do not want to go thru the effort of running a control wire from your brake controller to the receptacle at the back of the bus ....

A tad pricey but seems easy enough (kinda like a tax return form).
