Z,

You can't beat Ken's deal for a low mileage 60 Series and Ultrashift swap. I'd give him the bus and the $25,000 when it's done, I'm really thinking about having him do mine. You can't beat having someone who knows up grading the DDEC wiring, finding all the parts, and getting it all working for that price. Jump on it!

I'm not advertising for work, I'm saying that about 25,000 should be a reasonable charge for the swap. The parts are out there, the bus engine or the bus oil pan and valve cover are the only things that will require an effort to find. I've looked at doing this swap for about 4 years. Now that my 8V92 is leaking coolant past the o-rings around the cylinder liners the swap has become more important. My post was meant to convey every thing I've discovered about this swap. I hoped that most people would find some humor in my vast knowledge. After all there is some truth in humor or is it humor in truth??

The Cummins ISM is about the same length-or within just a few inches of the 8V-92TA-and it is 300 lbs lighter, requires less radiator, but you need to add the air to air intercooler, and change the electronics to except the Cummins engine.   Good Luck, TomC
