How do you like the 8v92 and the 754 powertrain?
Is your Allison a 2nd gear start?
That will be my new combo and I was wondering how they work together.
Thanks for the pics.

Rick, since being remanufactured by Jasper it has sat in the shop being rotated once a month.....maybe this spring if it warms up......it may be installed.....i have a few items left to work out.......dual oil cooler, and power steering pump mounting.   Other than those two issues.....its finished and coupled up to the transmission....sitting there waiting on me to finish it.......I'm pretty slow! Roll Eyes Since Thanksgiving I haven't worked on the bus......its just to busy of a time! The bus keeps getting shifted to the back burner!
