Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i cant seem to get any of my photos to upload. the board says it has reached it upload capacity. i think this bus has a 7.3 and not a 6.9 in it. the only identifying marking i can see it a navastar oil capacity sticker that has 7.3 checked off on it. the guy at the bus shop said my bus has a new engine.

check to see if it has a plate or sticker above or near the driver's area that lists the engine, axles, etc.
there are several skoolie people close to you, which im sure will be glad to help you, as well as some coach people.

Open a photobucket account and then PM me for instructions on how to post your pics. You also must have your pics stored on your computer. This will allow you to post as many pics as you want. Jack

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

thanks Bansil,the engine was listed as a 6.9 the bus shop guy said mine was the newest one of the lot of 3 being sold. the only id i see listed on the engine is the Navistar engine oil Capacity sticker which shows its oil capacity at 7.3. does anyone know if there are any other features do distinguish between a 6.9 7.3 IDI engine? if anyone sees anything standing out in my photos please let me know

Thanks
Eric

Re: 87 Wayne Lifestar international S1700 CXXVI

From what I understand, the 6.9 and 7.3 International engines are pretty much identical except for the size of the piston bore. So there is no sticker on the driver side cylinder head cover? Here is a link to some good information on those engines: http://www.forgottendiesels.com/ford_diesel.html
