Thanks for the ideas Mr4btThahoe

The air cooler was checked out by a radiator shop and they said it’s too far beyond repair.

I’ve ordered the $1800 cooler and will be 5 or so days to ship (the shop is giving it to me for their cost). Rear engine buses are extremely rare in Alberta where I live so it seems the best option as there aren’t any dead buses around. The area for the intercooler in my bus is extremely tight so I wouldn’t have much room to work with for something different.

This is my splurge for myself since I just saved $2000 by changing the failed water pump on my minivan myself. ;) Any future problems like this on the bus and I’ll have to get more creative for my fixes.

I finally got my bus back home today after 3.5 weeks sitting at the shop. Man what a nightmare... the charge air cooler got lost in the mail so they had to order another one. That was one among other problems.

Glad to have started taking the seats out and get rolling in the project. Need to speed things up to get as much done before winter blows in.

Heres a picture of the bus parked right beside my house so I can work on it with no trouble at all.
