I think John got a outright price no exchange Stewart and Stevenson charges 700 each exchange for the rebuilt 8v92 heads,they are over 3 grand each for a brand new bare 8v92 head


good luck

Pretty sure Clifford meant $435 for rebuilding a head, purchasing a head at Williams is a different story.


  Actually, purchasing that exact same $435 head at Williams for $1100 is a different story. But if they stand behind the labor to R&R it if it farts its a different story too.

Okay found a guy named Vance Butler that has worked on these for over 30 years and has 100's of engines on his property.  It was not as bad as it seemed and so this nightmare is officially put away.  I want to thank you all so much for the help.  I am so glad you are all here.   

Perhaps I will make it to Quartzide this year if that is how you spell it and meet some of you guys..........

Ha!  The Mother Lode....so to speak.  Hope you get to advertise Vance Butler's name and bonefides to the board.  With all those engines he must be a source of parts as well.

Thanks,

John

My bus started to not idle today.  You have to push the accelerator down 1/2 way to get it to engage.  I traced the linkage back and the throttle assembly is fine so must be the governor if I am ever spelling it right!    Anyone tell me how to troubleshot and and tips on fixing?
