Back when all buses just had a 8v71 the fad then was I need a 8v92 now it is electronic 4 strokes with the price of conversions on the market now sell your bus and buy one with the modern power train it's not going to cost one anymore than engine swap

 I have a helicopter engine here on trailer if anyone wants to be different  ::)some assembly is required

I've been thinking about a DD16 and a side winder rocket booster. I could always use a little more power.

Yeah you're right on that Clifford, but how the hell do you sell your bus?  Have to give 'em away I guess.  Maybe export to China?

JC,the governor is a good place to ask questions about if not sure I help people that have those all out of whack because they don't the difference  on which governor they have and cannot tell you the difference between a single weight or a double weight but yet they try and adjust one lol. 

Several of you guys here do good but some should not even touch one plus there are shops that should not even try and work on one they screw up big time IMO

It is real sad for me to see Don going in a different direction away from the 2 strokes back to the Allison but he is just tried of fighting the state of CA and the EPA costing him a lot of money

Him and I both know it is just a matter of time before they are completely ban for highway use or they will impose fees so high and limit the use it not going to be worth it  

Evan Cat with all their resources said to hell with it and walked away from a market they were a major player in,times are changing just look at your power bill Roll Eyes  

I just hope Obama starts a  "Cash for Clunker Buses"  program before he leaves office.

We might all make out.... Wink

A curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities. They're just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy.

Helicopter engine huh? Turbine or piston? It would be interesting to hear an old engine that powered a BELL 47 working thru an ALLISON automatic. Smiley
