I don't know when they changed over, but our 95 DL3 has a S60 and a B500.

God bless,

I think Series 60 Detroits were introduced into buses in 1994.   The first ones came with the Allison 740 series transmissions.  Later 1994 got the 6 speed Allison B500 that could utilize the 4 cycle engine low end torque better.

No doubt, as soon as there are electrical issues, it could get tough. We feel blessed, because we haven't had an issues yet.

As for me, I like that S60. But it does sound wimpy.

God bless,

John
