Clifford, it's an 8V92. Not sure of the trans yet. The previous owners said he absolutely loved it and hated that it caught on fire... Much preferred the Eagle to the Prevost that replaced it.

Bring it here and we will show the 60 series guys what a 8v92 can do when setup right

With the help of Cole I just about have the long torque curve figured out and peak torque at 14 to 1500 rpm instead of 12 to 13 hundred rpm but if you get in the market for a 60 series I have 2 new 14L marine engines non EGR 1.1 hrs on the clock

I need to keep 1 for another bus I have unless I find a new C-15 at a bargain price so far that is not happening

The 8v92 seems to run really well. Everyone says the four strokes have more power and get a little better fuel economy...but they'll never beat the sound of a two stroke

Here are a few videos from the short trip from where I bought the bus over to Eric's house. A short time after we started, on a curve, some liquid started shooting out of the side of the bus. The first video is of the bus pulling in to figure out what it was... When we fueled up, we used the street side. We never had any reason to look at the curb side. Of course, we found that the fuel cap was not on on that side. At least it was an easy fix, but a almost $4 per gallons you can't afford to ride very far like that!

Makes the little Prevost look like a baby. ;)

When I click the videos, they say private.

But the photos are great.

Sorry about that, Joe. I uploaded them from my phone and didn't check the settings. Should be good now.

They must have put the fire out with that bottle of Dasani, lol. Will be a nice car when you finish it Dale. Forget a house, just live in the bus. Oops, got a GF now, that won't work. Sure sorry I missed you going through Nashville.
