Hey y'all, I'm new to the site and just starting my conversion. I've been looking high and low for a manual for the bus from '95 not '97 (I know its basically the same, but there are a few relevant differences). Any help at all would be much appreciated!

The online operator's manuals only go back to '97. For odd stuff like that fleabay is the place.

I just picked up a 2000 Micro Bird and haven't been able to find any reference for it besides the operator manual. Do they exist? Thanks for any help.

some of those older busses at least the electrical diagrams for the body were posted inside the bus.. on my 86 bluebird I found a nice wiring diagram that inside the electrical access panel on the driver side of the bus.. it didnt have any engine wiring to speak of but had the circuits (including optionals) for the body wiring.. so it showed what went to which cavity on the fuse panels and what color wires went to heaters, etc...

under the hood i found vacuum line routing (that bus didnt have air brakes).. but used vacuum for the stop sign on the side and such..

trouble is most of our busses were built before much of this stuff was online.. and since school busses werent generally consumer-items, the manufacturers didnt post them online.. it was understood that a fleet manager would simply call their Sales rep and get the books they needed for their fleet service department...

I dont remember in the summer that I drove Bluebird busses to help a family friend, that every bus didnt come with a set of books.. I may have just not looked, I just dont remember them... when a school system bought new busses there was a training session on delivery with the fleet manager and the drivers who were going to be assigned the new busses.. and it was pretty much the stuff that was in the manuals and to show off "features" that may have been ordered.. this was in the mid 80s.. and it was just about the beginning of when schools started ordering A/C, so there was a set of books on the A/C if a bus had it, as they were always 3rd party installed.. bluebird didnt put it in themselves at the time..

so books may be rare.. Service shop manuals would likely be even more rare.. as only an authorized blue-bird body service company would have a set and maybe a fleet manager at a school system.. which im sure theres probably shop manuals layng around in school service shops for busses they no longer have....

Bluebird International 1991

Anyone have the service manual for Bluebird International 1991? Or any advice on removing the dash to get to clean out the blower motor?
