Yes, my husband is a truck driver too. Goes into the mountains often and we are well aware of the braking needs. I'm not sure how this turned into a lecture on braking. Threads do seem to go off topic don't they.

It's not the most desirable setup but its a nice bus, great body. New turbo.
i also might be able to get you setup with another bus we have on hand if the deal is fair.
I'll text you today! Maybe we could come by this weekend? Cheers!

However they would be "newer" internationals. I see a lot of those high top freight liners replacing the traditional style.

Did you see the RE on Craigslist for $8000?
I didn't see the the one you mention, can you post a link?

That's so awesome. Give me a call or something this weekend. Ill be at the bus yard a lot the next week. I do have a front engine 1986 Bluebird that had a new 5.9 put into it about 4 years ago. Has a mt643 and a driveline retarder which is pretty rare.only about 40k on the 5.9 but it needs work. Lol my place is a bit like a bus graveyard right now as we phase in a new set of buses and phase out our old ones.
