OK, maybe if I can find a shop in the Philly area or NJ area that can replace my sick 6V92 DE engine in my MCI 102C3 with a good running takeout or somethime like that... if anyone has any used engine or shops they want to refer me to, email mike@motorcabin.com or call my cell at 562 972 2158

Mike -

You need to call Luke @ US Coach.  He'll be able to take care of that coach - and he's a busnut, too!  His shops just across the border from Philly in NJ.

1-888-262-2434 between 9-5 Eastern, M-F.

Yes. LUKE at US COACH is the man with the answers to all your bus needs. If he doesn't have it, he can get it for you.
My MCI-9 NJT I am converting is as reliable and problem free as the day I bought it from him 4 years ago.

Mike,
I hate to stick my pair of pennies in here, but why don't we find out for sure whats wrong with the 92?

First, lets do a radiator pressure test to narrow down leak possibilities.

Next, lets run a compression test and figure out if one or two cylinders are leaking. (92 series is a wet sleeve, so a single cylinder leaking narrows down to a blown head o-ring or a sleeve).

Is it possible that an injector liner has gone tits up?

Lots of obvious things to check, other than what I mentioned, why not fix whats wrong with the
existing engine?

Unless you have a cracked block, there isn't that much reason to dump an engine.

I'd be happy to motor on up to TCOBL and work on the problem to make the engine viable agan. For an apropriate renumeration.

Or did I miss something about this 92?
