The 35' version that looks like a 4905 is a 4107. The 4905 is 40'. All parts are as easy to come by on either model. Some 4905's had a tag axle as well. 4 speed or auto on the 4905.

Thanks for the info, Bill!  I'm jammed up all weekend but as soon as I find some time I'll do some research on the differences in models.   I definitely want a 40'er, and don't want a tag.  I will need the extra bay space.  It wont be loaded down with all the typical RV stuff, either.

Try and find the A or the H8H-649 they seem like a better bus to me

Hi Clifford!  Did you get my PM the other day?

Is the H8H-649 also a Vee drive setup?  I'm assuming it is, which is fine.

that mat be, but there are a lot more reasons to take a tire off.... As Clifford said a well taken care of ( and even the not so well cared for) Ingersol Rand air tools are the best.

I still have old Cleco 1/2 inch gun that'll beat the pants off my CP  Grin

A friend of mine has a 4905 with a V730 automatic and 8V71. He is selling due to his age. This bus was only ever used in charter work in its life. It is a fully converted bus now. I can link you up to him if you want. It is located about 1 1/2 hours from Toronto Canada.

I know the 4106 inside and out, literally.  I know what to look out for on GM's in general, as well.

What are the pro's and con's of the 4905?  I know it's got an 8V71 vee drive, some were 35', some were 40', some were 4 spd Spicer, some were Allison.

I know I can get everything for the 4106 from Luke.  Are parts easy and cheap for the 4905?

Are the brakes and suspensions basically the same? 

Any feedback is really appreciated!

I figured this would be the best way to ask if anyone had a lead on a 4905 (40', single rear axle, auto, and power or assist steering).  The exterior needs to be pretty good, I don't care if it's seated or converted (I don't need the seats or the RV stuff).  Mechanical problems don't scare me so I'm ok with something that needs TLC.  I'll be putting new tires on it, as well as brakes, bags, etc.

Thanks for any leads!

Dang Scott -  Is that the bay in your bus?  Looks nice and clean!

Ours is about a 3' run.  I give it a couple of good full bowl flushes when we are hooked up before we leave a park.  Having good seals in the bowl helps with any smell.

Don't forget to vent it.  I think a roof vent is the preferred method although ours is vented out the rear wheel well and it works fine.

re oil pressure make sure you have the correct (single weight) oil in there.  Also re air system, my 04 had the rear reservoir bypassed because it was rusted out.  I aired up fast though.....aired down even faster when on the brakes a bunch.
