Re: 1997 AmTran International DT466

you should get good mileage cause your bus is so small its rated capacity is "0"

Oh...and crazy one...how's it going?
I'm not waiting on that day to come, having my "cold one" right now.......
just in case we never cross paths...... but thanks for the beer....
I'll bet crazycal could use a cold one right now. Man it was hot when we picked up the bus but with the engine temps up to normal I'd bet it's near the 120 degrees in the bus.
going to be one memerable trip home for crazycal...

Re: 1997 AmTran International DT466

Amen,I finally got a day to work on "the skoolies personal microwave" it was 98 by the thermometer I dropped on the table...in the shade! Wtf? This is TN in June....
I had the ceiling fan on inthe bus as well as another fan and I had shiat sticking together that was just plain wrong...and hell my ice melted in the cooler,inside the bus but I still had 10 cold ones and several waters
So all was good....in a fire and brimstone kinda way
Crazycal!!!
I hope all is good for ya'...keep hydrated and make sure to eat,even if you don't "feel" like it.

Yes drink uh? water...
The cold beer will need to wait until you get home to sunny Cal.
How are you and the AmTran holding up?
Need some salt too to keep you going... 109* today in Manchester, a new all time record for June...
Keep trucking, may the force be with you.

Hit 108 degrees in Las Vegas today, and we are just getting warmed up! But I could never drive my bus around in weather like this...

OK. Been drinking water like a fish. I can't believe how hot it is.

Mileage updates.

12.286
11.276
10.129. This one was not less than 21-2200 rpm including hills. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my mileage numbers. Too tired to write more right now. The heat is zapping the life out of me.

I started this thread because I need ideas for locking my front door. If you have any pictures, please post them there.

Re: 1997 AmTran International DT466

On the locks --- check with the manufacturer. I got a keyed locking handle that was available from Blue Bird for the rear on my old unit and they may have an option for the front as well. Many of the skoolies were also rigged at the factory for other applications that required locks. Just a thought in case you haven't tried there yet. If so, they will be an easy fit.
