Tom, I talked to a truck shop that had one for 4500.00 I think. It is rebuilt in NW Pa, or so they say. Tom Y

A friend of mine has one you can hear run if you hurry since he's taking it out next weekend from his mc7. He's going to a 8/92. He's here in Florida. I know he had it up for sale on BNO but not sold yet! It's a good deal for someone as it doesn't have too many miles!

You may want to check the eplace. There is a guy in Northern Ca that has several for sale. He is asking 4000 but you could probably get it for less!

Good luck!

I have a 692 and 740 combination that I pulled out when I converted to a Cummins.  It runs good but I just wanted to put in another engine while I was converting a new coach.  email me and I can give you details.
