Gear vendor units are NOT made for bus size application's.

They are made for LDT, meaning Light Duty Truck.

Any bus other that crappy little one ton cut away's are MDT, Medium Duty Trucks and rear engine buses are HDT, Heavy Duty Trucks.

This false info needs to stop. Your giving people that don't know any better false hope.

No, is is giving it to you strait up and to the point.

The repetitive dumb questions give us senior members a head ache.

Lean to press the "Search" button as often as you press the "Post" button, and all will be well.

Seriously

For those who are interested I ended up getting a brown-lipe 6231A which is a manual divorced auxiliary three speed, the way you select gear ranges on the fly is by hitting an appropriate shift speed, selecting neutral on your auto in my case an AT545 And while in neutral shift your brown-lipe, then put your Allison back into drive. the overdrive is only safe to use on relatively flat ground in the auto trannies top gear or third, due to the multiplied torque. The only problem here is now that you've dropped rpms the torque converter in the Allison won't lock up at too low a speed..and you can have slippage. There are solutions to that problem though.

The 545 doesnt lock up!
If this works, I would love to hear how it goes.
Sounds too good to be true!

Charles_M you're right it doesn't lock up what I mean is that at lower speeds/gears or pulling grades with the overdrive engaged will burn up torque converters. @crazycal I'm not going to trade insults on the internet, if you don't wish to discuss the mechanical aspects of this kindly keep your words to yourself, it's important to act like a person, even on the internet

There was no insult. I said you've got it covered. So that means everyone trying to give you advice is wasting their time. It's that simple. If you want to insult me go ahead.
