I doubt that Brian the bolting system looks like it would be hard to make for the average guy with only a tig welder,not just bolts going through a flange and the gasket system is a work of art 

good luck

I paid $596.40   That was 6 years ago mind you.  But that's also Canuck bux - 6 years ago that was worth about $400 in real dollars.

Gary, the truck pan is quite deep and the sump would be in the rear of the bus (see photo - used in my article).

The pan and pickup from a DD dealer is about $1K.  I think they have about 4 versions, I chose the least costly.

That sure looks like it's a tight fit in your bus. How much room do you have between your engine and floor? My bus with the 8v92 has enough room that I could crawl on top of the engine.

That pan looks a lot shallower. 1,000 seems like a lot of $ for that pan. Maybe I can keep an eye out at junkyards over the next year.

Thanks for that pic.

Gary, if the series 60 is a EGR engine don't expect 7 mpg like Jim's not going to happen all the casino buses that make the run to Phoenix are 5.8 mpg you can Prolink anyone any day of the week and it comes up 5.8 in Prevost or the MCI's

Clifford,
I don't believe it is an EGR engine. The engine is in a 1996 truck and is the original engine, just rebuilt. I see TomC just posted some info on that in another thread.

If I don't see any gains, I would be really suprised. But if nothing else, I'm sure to gain climbing abilities.

Clifford, you are probably right, it's hard to tell but the gasket looks like it has an o-ring or ridge located in a groove.  I've made weirder stuff.  One BMW engine I have I milled a dry sump oil pan out of a billet of aluminium.  Manual mill, I stood there cranking the table back and forth for about three days!   Grin  It was very complicated, I made it all one piece and milled all the oil pickups (three) into the pan.
